Even though many HEWI products have become the technical standard, we are constantly focusing on our products‘ technical optimisation and innovative power because it is a critical factor for success in a global competitive landscape. This focus is evident in the many awards and patents for products in our locknut segment, where HEWI Fasteners is a leader in the automotive market.
HEWI’s latest developments involve optimising the geometric design of nuts and cold formed parts. Rotationally symmetric cold formed parts, where we have increased intrinsic strength by applying historical changes in form, are one example. This approach incorporates the way that materials, construction, manufacturing and functionality interact into the overall design strategy.
Know how in quality and process management
In order to attain the highest possible quality standards in our HEWI products, we demand and foster processes that are consistently transparent, economic, stable and productive. This includes seamless control with a variety of suitable measuring procedures of the most modern and fully equipped testing and measuring installations.
The Kaizen method enables us to create value for our clients exactly where they need it while managing our efficiency and effectiveness. The results, besides enhanced product quality, include lower costs, reduced resource waste and shorter throughput times.
These certifications testify to the quality of our services:
