Rotite

A fundamentally new fastening system that offers a range of benefits to all industries. Rotite technology is a scalable system of precision connectivity combined with a simple, intuitive action. The technology employs a rotary interlocking system that can be made in a range of materials using a number of techniques. Mould it, ‘Print’ it Machine it or Cast it – It is suited to standard or advanced materials and engineering processes. read more...

Rotite is based on a mathematical principle and is scalable to any size. It can be fine-tuned to meet the specification. The simplicity of Rotite could help reduce weight and component count whilst improving efficiency and functionality. Rotite could revolutionise your design – want to Know How?

Applications

Aero – Rotite Technologies has received NATEP (National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme) funding to develop the use of Rotite in high strength lightweight composite materials read more

…working with the North West Composites Centre. Rotite aims to make structures stronger and simpler by removing traditional metallic fasteners, reducing both weight and magnetic signatures.

Automotive – Rotite is particularly suited to demanding challenges where saving weight and space are paramount. Rotite can form robust connections in metals and polymers. Rotite can connect dissimilar materials in harsh environments and can incorporate electronic or hydraulic connectivity read more

…providing added value and improved functionality. Given the large quantity of connectors used in modern vehicles, there’s a huge potential to use Rotite to improve your design, reduce component count or speed up assembly.

Manufacturing – If you need to increase productivity or precision, reduce downtime or speed up assembly, Rotite can provide elegant solutions read more

…which are precise and repeatable, Rotite is particularly suited to reducing maintenance costs and associated labour. Such labour reductions are applicable to Lean manufacturing methodologies such as SMED (Single-Minute Exchange of Die)

Consumer goods – Rotite’s precise and positive action provides a great user experience whilst improving products by design. As a mould-in fastening technology Rotite can provide leaner design, greener manufacturing and simplified recycling. read more

… Rotite is applicable to high volume manufacturing, so integrating Rotite technology into products can provide smarter means of manufacturing and deliver intuitive and engaging experiences to the end-user.
