The 80/20 principle of manufacturing costs

Reduce manufacturing costs with ECOTECH consulting

Screw connections – reliable stability and precision for your project

Screw connections are indispensable in many areas of industry and construction. They provide an effective method for connecting various components safely and securely. But screw connections are not just simple mechanical connections – they also play a crucial role in terms of reliability, resilience and longevity.

When developing and implementing a project, it is vital to select the right screw connection. Factors such as material, thread type, tightening torque and torque control come into play here. To ensure that your screw connections meet the requirements and maintain their long-term performance, it is essential to seek expert advice and expertise.

Frequently asked questions

FAQs about technical advice from ECOTECH

Optimising joining technology pays off. How do we do this and what measures can you take to reduce your costs? See below for answers to the most frequently asked questions related to technical advice from our ECOTECH Service.
  • The focus is on optimising joining technology and finding solutions to related challenges. This results in rationalisation of the fasteners and improvement in C-parts management. This means that new and existing screw connections are adapted and the variety of parts is reduced, thereby reducing the total cost of ownership.

    Standardisation and reduction increase sustainability in terms of using the right material and the right surface. We will analyse your product and the joining technology it uses down to the last detail.

    At ECOTECH, our mission is to demonstrate optimisation potential. Our application areas are perfectly coordinated: Our service includes technical consulting, research and development, optimisation of your production line and knowledge transfer. Each of these areas is personally adapted to your needs – we call this all-round service our 360° joining technology.

  • The manufacturing costs for a new product are already largely determined during the design phase. The cost-effectiveness of joining technology depends only to a minor extent on the pricing of the fasteners. The process costs for the preparation and assembly of the components to be joined are much more significant. Calculation, interpretation, design and construction are not just technical terms for the ECOTECH team, but a true passion.

    Our all-round service consists of providing technical solutions, series production optimisation, outstanding expertise and research and development. We rationalise and standardise your C-parts, thereby reducing the variety of parts. We recommend a cost-effective selection of fasteners.

    All measures are aimed at achieving optimum efficiency and productivity, as well as achieving cost savings and a reduction in manufacturing costs early in the process. The earlier ECOTECH specialists are involved, the greater their positive impact on the entire value chain and on manufacturing costs.

  • Optimisation begins with our technical consulting. ECOTECH optimises your joining technology through specially developed technical solutions and through the rationalisation of your fasteners. We use product-independent, technology-neutral engineering.

    Innovative products, such as screw locking with the RIPP LOCK® prevent production downtimes, technical damage, loss of time and high costs, and increase safety through effective and economical unscrew locking. We also advise you on surface selection and thread locking.

    With our experience in application technology we can recommend the most economically practical joining technology and work with you to develop your screw connections. This is how connections are created to construct perfect products. The high technical standards of our research and development test area ensure the best possible quality.

    Furthermore, our <strong>customer seminars and training courses</strong> provide additional know-how, which enables long-term quality assurance of the production processes.
