SAVETIX® – turns screws into captive fasteners.

On 29.12.2009 the old Machinery Directive 98/37/EC was superseded by the new EU Machinery Directive, 2006/42/EC, which is now binding. So there's no time to lose: those protective guards need fixing to meet Annex 1.4.2.1 of the Directive using Savetix® washers and corresponding Savetix® screws.

Only manufacturers and importers that have modified their machines according to the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC Annex 1.4.2.1 can attach the CE sign to them after 2010.

Captive screws, the captive screw and captive fasteners are some of the many names for Savetix®.

To keep your machine in line with EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, we can supply you with Savetix®.
