Bulten’s engineering setup

We firmly believe that nothing is impossible until we have definite proof of the contrary. That’s why we never shy away from approaching every new task as if the possibilities were endless. This is equally true for production solutions or the simple question of why a particular bolt doesn’t behave the way we’d like it to under a specific set of circumstances.

Our staff is specialized in chemistry, physics, technology, construction, and production. At our development center, you will find unparalleled expertise regarding cold forging, friction calculation, durability, surface treatments and more. But it doesn’t end there. Being experts, in theory, is all good and well, but critical fasteners aren’t used in theory: they’re used in practice. To be able to guarantee our products’ quality and consistency, our development center also performs a unique series of documentation and rigorous testing before approving any fastener. So far, they have never failed in solving an application. Maybe because of their attitude towards the task at hand: anything’s possible.
