In Place Cost
Bulten’s advanced products are intended to reduce total costs (so-called In-Place-Cost, IPC) for the customer. IPC is the total cost from development until the fastener is mounted and performs its function.
• Fastener cost
• Product development
• Internal logistics
• Pre assembly
The cost of the physical fastener normally amounts to about 15% of the total cost. By using Bulten’s innovative solutions and value-added technologies the customer can achieve cost reductions of IPC while maintaining – and in many cases improve – performance. This is done, for example by standardization, simplified assembly and reduction of indirect peripheral costs such as development costs.
