Automotive fastening systems 15 July 2021

Serial production, such as that used within the automotive sector, requires constant and reliable parts, supplies and logistics services to ensure the smooth management of stocks. With this in mind, Berardi Group has created B-Lean Factory Systems – tailor-made logistics solutions, based on a client’s specific needs.

The role of B-Lean Factory Systems is to develop tailor-made logistics solutions based on the client’s production chain, internal procedures and production line layout. The objective of the Kanban service is to optimise the whole supply and production chain, to prevent stock shortages, as well as subsequently avoid production stops.

Berardi provides custom solutions specially developed for the needs of automotive products including quick fastening systems with high resistance to mechanical stress and vibrations, for suspensions and shafts, as well as custom sized nuts and screws.

Also relevant to the automotive sector is Berardi’s capability to offer a wide selection of specific surface coatings, including Geomet® and Deltaprotekt®, as well as various top coats that enhance corrosion resistance or reduce surface friction. In addition to surface coatings, Berardi can also supply threadlocking applications, which prevent loosening of the fasteners even under severe vibrations.

Berardi has over 6,000 clients worldwide from car and motorcycle brands, to major producers of power transmission systems, as well as international companies that specialise in the production of LPG and methane distribution systems.
