All of your items are accurately assigned to the equivalent Thomas Warburton items with duplicates detected and merged. 


You have the freedom to choose which duplicate items are eliminated. From here you will begin to see the benefit of saving on procurement and process costs.



Your Account Manager will analyse your item base using our extensive experience to gain awareness of your C-Part requirements. 


Our objective is to provide valuable suggestions on which similar items to combine into one standard item. We take into account the material surface, strength, class, drive and head shape.



We prodvide expert advice in accordance with your requirements for the selection of your redesigned and ideal C-Part range. 


Additionally, your engineers can utilise the online CADENAS PARTCOMMUNITY 3D CAD drawing database with CAD data on your preferred fasteners. See below.

Tooling selection and setup 


Once your C-Parts standardisation is defined, we can support your production line team onsite with tooling selection and setup and such as the correct torque levels and speeds to suit the specifications for your various C-Parts applications. Not only will this eliminate production errors, but allow your tooling to last longer.
