The REMINC/CONTI family of thread-forming fasteners provide considerable performance and cost-savings advantages over conventional machine screws and metric fasteners. However, knowledge of our proprietary thread-forming technology is essential to the successful application engineering and marketing of our family of TAPTITE®, POWERLOK® and REMFORM® products.
Licensees and End-Users of TAPTITE®, POWERLOK®, and REMFORM® fasteners must be able to:
- identify potential applications for our fasteners
- specify the most appropriate product design for the application site
- develop convincing performance data through extensive testing that affirms the proposed application
- prove that the application will lower the cost of assembly
- produce the fasteners to implement the solution.
This detailed and deliberate procedure requires the input of educated and experienced professionals competent in thread-forming fastener technology. Our training team has the expertise to empower your team with understanding of our complete product range and its capabilities.
Our Goal: Face-to-Face, Hands-On Training
As the developer and licensor of several proprietary fastener designs, REMINC/CONTI continually strive to expand its application engineering activities and make its training facility available to as many licensees and fastener end-users as possible. From experience, we know that being proactive with application engineering is critical to achieving success.
We assume the responsibility for educating our “army” of licensees by providing a no-charge comprehensive training program. This program is directed by our globally-positioned REMINC/CONTI professionals, including Don Fosmoen, John Reynolds, Ben Fosmoen, Gabriel Pagan, Matthias Jokisch, Sebastian Schlegel, Leji Su, Matt Hara, Joseph Koo, and Jairam Shewani. This experienced team of professionals is dedicated to education and training, whether it be conducted in REMINC’s laboratory-conference center, at CONTI’s facility or at individual licensee locations. Training consists of not only lectures, but interactive discussions and hands-on learning opportunities. All attendees learn about when and how to use TAPTITE® PRO™, POWERLOK® II and REMFORM® screws. Attendees of our training seminars will not only learn to identify potential licensed-product applications, but also how to substantiate the case for documented cost-savings. We know from experience that assemblers have no interest in adopting a new fastener design unless it can be justified by bona fide cost-savings and/or performance advantages. Our fasteners deliver both. Our training seminars provide licensees and end-users with the theory, practice, and hands-on testing knowledge to confidently employ our products in countless applications.
Our typical seminars take place over 2-3 days, but this timeframe and the materials presented are always modified to meet an end-user’s or licensee’s expressed needs. Our staff can focus on basic thread-forming technology, one or more specific product designs, application-engineering fundamentals, marketing techniques, manufacturing methods, tooling requirements or quality assurance. If training is conducted at your facility, staff members can provide hands-on training on your factory floor, whether perfecting heading and rolling techniques or just troubleshooting. While our training team is flexible and can generally accommodate your schedule of availability and needs at your preferred location, the best venue for education is the REMINC Fastener Laboratory in Middletown, RI in the USA. This fully-equipped facility has the training space and sophisticated equipment to provide a comprehensive educational experience. To achieve success, education is paramount, and REMINC/CONTI takes this challenge seriously. Call upon us to help solve your problems. We have the answers!
