Electrical fastening solutions 15 April 2021

EFC International, a global provider of engineered components, is able to provide a comprehensive range of fasteners specific to the electronics industry – enabling it to work with customers from design to production and assembly, for electrical applications.

EFC International’s range includes REMINC’s TRILOBULAR® grounding screws – ideal for creating conductivity – and TAPTITE® fasteners, which provide cost savings for internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles and on-board EV chargers. Automotive OEMs also use TAPTITE PRO® fasteners for electrical grounding applications, which is recognised as a key property for a vehicle’s performance.

The TAPTITE PRO fasteners tap their own threads directly in the nut member when installed, perfectly suited to grounding applications. They clear any debris, paint or oxidation present in the hole prior to assembly ensuring a positive metal-to-metal contact. These features are ideal for consumer electronics devices such as computers, printers, peripherals, as well as mobile phones. 

As a strategic business partner with ARaymond, EFC is also able to provide an extensive line of electrical fastening solutions that includes battery cable terminal clips, clamps, battery box coolant quick connectors, edge mounted cable clips and ground clips. These products are widely used in the automotive/electrified vehicle market, but also ideal for some solar and industrial applications.  

Moulded wire protection products and stamped electrical components, manufactured of the highest quality are stocked by EFC, which includes liquid tight cord grips, wire connectors, bushings, grommets and power components. The liquid tight cord grips provide ultimate strain relief protection for applications in various size cords, tubing and cables.  The domed sealing nut resists snags and sheds contaminants and has an integral sealing ring.
