Technical Questions About Fasteners
Our knowledge of the industry standards, fastener technology, and fastener materials ensures an accurate and timely response to virtually any fastener related question.
Most fasteners are made to comply with one or more standards. Some of the many organizations that write fastener standards are:
Standards are absolutely necessary -- otherwise, you'd never know what sort of performance to expect from a fastener -- but realistically, most end users won't be able to understand all of the specifics of these standards.
The Evan Engineering & Design Support group is familiar with the standards that cover the fasteners we sell. We can translate them into Chinese anyone can understand. We're here to help you make sure you have the correct product for your application.
Fastener Failure Analysis
Through detailed investigation, we can determine the root cause of failure and provide recommendations to correct or eliminate the problem.
Evan has our own laboratory with equipment that can help you uncover the causes of fastener failures.
We have processes in place to gather parts and details surrounding the failure event. We then look at both the failed piece(s) and unused parts from the same lot, while also reviewing details about the assembly, field conditions, loads experienced by the fastener, and other factors. Laboratory testing will confirm whether there are any issues with that lot of parts. The failed fastener itself may also provide clues, so don't throw away the broken fastener; save it and protect the fractured surfaces (with bubble wrap or something similar). If our fastener testing shows that the parts meet the appropriate standards, we will work with you to find the root cause of the failure.
Although the fastener is the first item that gets the blame when there is a failure, our experience is that the fastener will meet the specs it was intended to meet the vast majority of the time. At that point putting our engineers and equipment to work for you can save significant time in analyzing the situation -- and preventing future failures.
On-Site Fastener Trainings
Evan Engineering & Design Support fastener experts can provide detailed trainings to help you make the most efficient use of your fasteners.
The Evan Engineering & Design Support group host dozens of on-site training sessions each year at our customers' facilities. These trainings are all customized to meet the needs of the customer and targeted specifically for the intended audience. Whether it's training for a group of design engineers, quality staff, or line workers, our targeted fastener training can help you increase "up time," reduce assembly time, and minimize field failures.
Our basic fastener training includes hands-on time with torque/tension equipment and takes most of a morning or afternoon. We have provided shorter sessions, but two hours is generally the minimum required to get a significant benefit from the training. Longer, more in-depth sessions can take up to an entire day. The Evan Engineering & Design Support group is flexible enough to train multiple groups on multiple shifts -- whatever works best for you.
Share your training goals with us and we'll work with you to provide a program that will exceed your expectations -- and deliver an excellent return on your investment.
