Bülte, the company specialising in plastic and plastometallic protective and fastening parts improves engineering efficiency and the digital experience of its customers with instant 3D downloads.

The company has just put online a brand-new 3D product catalogue. Thanks to instant downloads of 3D models from its site, Bülte improves the experience and efficiency of its customers by enabling them to speed up their design process. The new catalogue already offers 3D models of washers, fasteners, bushes, spacers, and nuts. It has been designed to be able to work directly with Bülte customers’ design offices, so that the references could really be used right from the product design phases. It allows engineers to quickly and easily navigate through the Bülte catalogue to find and download the free 3D model they need, in more than 100 software formats and versions. This new 3D catalogue will allow Bülte to be in direct contact with its end customers. The company’s technical-sales teams also provide customers with personalised support to guide them in their choice of products and respond to their requests.

The 3D Bülte catalogue is also in line with the company’s desire to support its customers with a personalised service. The 3D models of each product can be downloaded on the fly and are available for self-service.

About Bülte

The Bülte company, specialized in plastic protection parts and plastic and plastometallic fasteners, was founded in 1956 in Lüdinghausen, Germany, by Norbert Bülte. Joined by his son, Stefan Bülte, the company later decided to export German technology and know-how to France. In 1997, the holding company Groupe Bülte is founded. The group opened a site in the United Kingdom in 1999, with a broad diversification in products and materials and an expansion in Europe. All its employees are perfectly multilingual and can accompany their customers in their mother tongue, always with the same ease, from the first contact.

Present in France, the United Kingdom and Germany, Bülte delivers its products all over the world and accompanies wide range of industries, including military, food processing, furniture, medical and aerospace, with a follow-up and personalised advice, favouring human contact. All washers, screws and nuts are compliant and meet specific standards for DIN, ISO and NFE. Most of the company’s 30,000 references are manufactured in Germany, but Bülte also responds to its customers’ specific requests for custom-made products.

This extensive range of products is available in a large choice of materials, including ABS, PA6, PA6.6, PP, PE, PVDF, POM, PC, and PTFE. Bülte Plastics also integrates the REACH and RoHS requirements and guidelines in its manufacturing and procurement processes.

The Bülte Group has been present on the market for 60 years and constantly ensures that its customers are advised and supported by a sales team that is always responsive. It provides them with a catalogue of standard products that can be consulted online, but also the possibility of producing specific parts to plan. Initial samples and/or prototypes are offered. Estimates are made very quickly and orders are processed within 24 or 48 hours at the latest. All its sales teams are made up of multilingual technical sales representatives, a single point of contact ensuring rigorous follow-up, from product development to invoicing, worldwide delivery and use. To add to this impressive offering, Bülte has been improving consistency across the group’s three locations. The computer systems have been linked between the group, in the UK, France and Germany. This has been improved to help the group work as a whole and better serve its customers.
