Bedford, United Kingdom, May 24, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Challenge Europe specialise in small volume manufacturing projects – custom special jobs which are a problem for bigger manufacturers, where it is not cost-effective for them to program large and expensive automated equipment. This enables Challenge to optimise performance across a customer manufacturing operation with standard products from stock, including many specialist fastener items.
However, when standard stock fastenings are not suitable, they can offer a custom solution from their own manufacturing facility. This capability is ideal for small quantities and extends to partnering arrangements with fabricators and finishers so that they can cover a wide range of components from specialist threaded fasteners to sheet metal or cast fixings. Challenge Europe couple in-house machining with a global sourcing and supply infrastructure and in-depth expertise of the manufacturing cycle gained from over 30 years in the engineering arena.
This capability enables them to produce components from alternative materials at short notice and to incorporate them into packaged sub-assemblies. In this way, customers gain a complete service of high-quality and low-cost on standard mass-produced items and on small quantity specialist components.
Typically this includes: Instrument Carrying Handles, Chrome Handles, Clamp Screws and Stud Rivet Nut Assembly. In addition they offer cut to length studding, vented screws, spacers and general modification work to standard fasteners, e.g. shortening to non-standard lengths & cross drilling to take split cotter pins.
Custom specialist machine parts are produced in most metals and sometimes plastics – non-standard items are specials to customer drawings or non-standard sizes to international standards, e.g. an intermediate diameter or length.
Typical related items include instrument carrying handles in standard or custom dimensions for transport of instruments or use on cases, trollies, etc., available in black or chrome.
