With its headquarters and its warehousing facility near Hamburg Airport in Norderstedt, PRK Technologies is a trading enterprise that assures maximum availability of stock at all times, as well as quick delivery anywhere in Europe.
Based in Germany since 2007, PRK Technologies GmbH (PRK) is the associate company to Micron Precision Screws (MPS) – the Indian manufacturer of high‑tensile fasteners. “The collaboration with MPS enables PRK to bring the very best of Indian fastener design, and the latest advances in manufacturing techniques, to the European market,” states Karan Vig, managing director at PRK Technologies and Micron Precision Screws. “Thanks to our warehouse, with a capacity of 2,500 pallets, we can stock core parts to be delivered to customers efficiently as and when required. We can also provide ring fenced storage for customer contract orders that can be delivered efficiently on an agreed ‘call off basis’.”
The product range that PRK is able to supply includes high‑tensile socket products, hexagonal products, sockets (DIN 912, DIN 7379, DIN 7991, DIN 7984, ISO 7380 and ISO 7381), dowel pins (DIN 6325, 7979D and DIN 7) and special DIN parts such as DIN 609/610, DIN 464, DIN 653, DIN 467, DIN 908, and DIN 910.
PRK is able to offer these solutions thanks to a wide range of manufacturing capabilities at MPS in India, including the latest cold and hot forging technology, a turning centre to manufacture any type of turned component, an in‑house continuous heat treatment plant, automatic tempering and blackening furnaces, as well as in-house plating that enables oxidising, zinc phosphating, electro galvanising with white, yellow, black and green passivation.
“The MPS site also includes the latest testing equipment including optical sorting, eddy current, tensile testing, metallurgical microscopes, plating thickness, torque testers and various other equipment to guarantee the very best quality,” states Karan Vig. “All the parts that we supply are manufactured to international quality standards such as ISO, DIN, BS, ANSI, and JIS. This is backed up with quality certifications such as IATF/TS-16949, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 18001, which enables us to work with approved suppliers to JCB, CNH, Honda, Volvo, Piaggio, as well many more OEM customers – with full PPAP documentation supplied.”
Through the comprehensive experience of its integrated engineering team, and the latest management systems, MPS’ qualified work force has all the tools and equipment to develop any component to suit customer needs. “In addition to our core range of products we are also able to provide bespoke design and manufacturing of standard and non-standard parts,” mentions Karan Vig. “This means that PRK can offer unique ‘one stop service’ – providing designs, drawings, quotations, manufacturing and delivery to Europe and the rest of the world.”
Karan Vig concludes: “Twenty years ago PRK was formed to provide a European base to stock and deliver industrial fasteners that were manufactured from MPS based in India. We have successfully established ourselves as a provider of high-quality value-added fastening solutions and services that keep our clients ahead of competition and at the forefront of technology. We will continue to provide more stock of core parts to meet the demands of our European customers and we are committed to innovation and change to deliver for the future and answer our customer needs.”
