Make sure you benefit from these CPS®AUTOMOTIVE areas of expertise:
- Product standardisation
We are experts in standardising products and reducing the variety of parts. This is achieved in particular by bundling different product groups and by standardising surfaces, drives, head shapes, strength classes and fastening elements leading to greater transparency and additional cost savings.
- Cost reduction programmes
We will advise you on alternative fasteners: for instance, replacing a screwed connection with a rivet or vice versa. Reducing the complexity of connecting products by switching from turned parts to cold extruded parts. Another important core competence is the inspection of the entire logistics chain to identify potential savings.
- Technology and design advice
Our technology and design advice can help your company plan and source the right fasteners in the development phase. Top priorities here are product standardisation and the identification of the best manufacturing process. Tools such as CAD data pools and the technical documentation on our products are available to support optimisation.
