As Norm Fasteners, we become a business partner to our customers in their projects by providing on-site solutions for fasteners with our on-site engineering service. With our know-how, experienced employees, and strong engineering background , we effectively solve critical needs in the most effective way. With our resident engineers, we are present at the project location from the beginning of the project and provide on-site support throughout the project.
With a professional approach, we evaluate the fastener needs required in the projects with Norm Fasteners Engineering and FSP team and ensure that the suitable product is used in terms of design, cost, ease of assembly, and reusability.
In case of fasteners to be needed in project management and ongoing manufacturing, we recommend the most suitable alternative products and ensure their supply.
We offer new products, technologies, and new applications in fasteners by considering customer needs.
We carry out FMEA studies for problems that may appear in the applications of fasteners.
We analyze the problems that may arise in the application and present them to our customers with possible solutions.
We organize benchmark studies with other OEMs for various fasteners used in vehicle systems.
We carry out TVM, total value management, and cost reduction studies.
We reduce vehicle energy costs and environmental damages through weight reduction studies we carry out in R&D Center
We follow the vehicle BOM in order to reduce possible complexity and make them common.
We carry out studies for optimum stock tracking of fasteners that will be out of service, thus reducing scrap costs.
We prevent possible production losses of our customers, contribute to the reduction of costs, and improve the points of not being able to submit vehicles to the market, such as line stoppages.
HexLight® Version 1, with its lightweight design that does not compromise its functionality with its hexagonal head form, HexLight® Version 2, with a head form designed without compromising its mechanical strength, and HexLight® Version 3, with a polygonal head form, where the head and flange part is specially designed, our environmentally friendly new generation HexLight Family can be assembled with standard sockets and bits.
Owing to the unique tip design, NormSelfTM can self-align itself independent of the skill of the installer or the accuracy of the automation system used in the installation, and the required fastening can be formed by entering into the female fastener without any thread-crossing.
FastiNormTM clinching fasteners have been developed to provide strong torque resistance with high axial clamping loads without any welding process.
It creates a mechanically permanent fastening without causing any metallurgical changes to the assembled parts.
The self-tapping fasteners ensure a strong connection between the assembly parts through the high stript-to-drive ratio. Originally developed thread geometry of NormEST® allows excellent thread forming on the assembly hole.
Norm One Way fasteners are designed for the safety of the connection, with a uniquely designed bit that only allows movement in the direction of tightening and cannot be loosened with standard bits. Due to the unique socket geometry, it transmits more torque to the assembly parts.
We have been taking strong steps forward with the aim of making our Application Center, which has been in operation since 2011, a center of excellence in the fastener industry by further strengthening and enriching it with new equipment every day.
For the needs of national and international companies, universities, technology and R&D centers that we work in cooperation within the sector; we provide support for tests that simulate the behaviors of fasteners in assembly conditions such as torque-angle tests, torque-clamping force test, residual torque test, and friction coefficient determination test.
We can examine the behaviors of fasteners under vibration with the two axial vibration test device we have developed in-house to determine the change in clamping load according to the number of cycles of fasteners operating under vibration.
In our application center, we perform fatigue tests to determine the fatigue life of fasteners subjected to cyclic loads.
With our cutting, automatic grinding/polishing devices, special micro/macro etchants, and high-definition optical microscope, we also carry out detailed microstructure examinations of many materials within our center.
We are pleased to provide solutions to the needs of the sector and our business partners with our characterization tests for product quality and reliability and contribute to the studies of other institutions and organizations in the industry by providing testing services within our R&D Center.
In the projects we carry out with our customers and business partners, we provide engineering services at every stage from the beginning to the end with our co-designer identity. In this context, we develop project-specific analytical models, perform 3D modeling and finite element analyses, and perform all tests for project requirements in our Application Center within our R&D Center.
In addition, we work with our partners in all matters related to fasteners by providing the support they need on their assembly line.
