Technifast’s marine grade service 15 June 2016

To combat the unforgiving environment both above and below the waterline, Technifast Ltd has produced a range of precision engineered fasteners in Grade 316 stainless steel (A4).

Available now, Technifast’s manufacturing team has invested heavily in its machining capacity and has the capability to offer a wide range of bespoke marine parts such as dowels, clevis pins and INS 300 self-tapping inserts, which can be specifically created to customer’s drawings and specifications. Recent bespoke projects have included the production of propshafts, boat stanchions, sea water pump spindles, curtain rails and outdrive components.

This specialist service complements Technifast’s already proven product portfolio of standard stainless steel fasteners. “Our fasteners are frequently used in harsh marine environments and often a standard fastening solution and material is not appropriate for the application,” says Louis Speed, managing director at Technifast Ltd. “Our marine components service provides our customers the opportunity to have bespoke marine grade precision fasteners made to their specification, with the high-quality finish we pride ourselves on.”
