Tonawanda, NY May 31, 2017 – Sherex Fastening Solutions, a global leader in engineered fasteners, tooling, and automation, is pleased to announce the launch of a new wedge locking washer product line.
“The TEC Series product line adds another fastening solution to our portfolio, continuing our 35 year tradition of developing innovative, lowest total installed cost fastening solutions for our valued customers,” says President Adam Pratt, “TEC Series washers are a high quality, high performance, cost-effective solution to the challenge of securing joints that experience severe vibration and load.”
Sherex’s March 2016 acquisition of Disc-Lock International, the originator of wedge locking technology, laid the foundation for the development of the TEC Series product line. Sherex leveraged its world-class R&D team, global manufacturing capabilities, and seasoned technical sales professionals, to build off of the Disc-Lock technology to develop this new product line.
This launch is the first step in a multi-year development program, and comes from a technical team with over 100 years combined experience in the development and sale of wedge-locking technology.
TEC Series washers were tested extensively on Junker vibration machines throughout the development process, and consistently protected joints under severe vibration and load. “We are thrilled to report that TEC Series washers meet or exceed the performance of current offerings in the marketplace, ”says Pratt.
TEC Series washers will be stocked in strategic locations throughout North America to provide short lead times to customers.
“Our customers have come to expect best-in-class performance, quality, availability, and value,” says Pratt, “and we look forward to introducing additional innovative solutions in the near future.”
TEC Series washers are available in standard and large outer diameter styles in carbon steel and stainless steel, in sizes from M3 (#5) through M72 (3”). Sherex’s engineering and technical sales team is available to custom design products with special dimensions, materials, and coatings.
