Würth Industry North America (WINA), the leading industrial distributor of supply chain solutions for fasteners, MRO and safety equipment, announced that they will be launching a new Engineering YouTube Series called Würth Knowing on March 10th. The series’ first season, delivered in 15-20 minute episodes on WINA’s YouTube channel, shares Würth’s expertise on fastener-related topics. In season two, Würth plans to expand beyond fasteners to cover a wide range of industry-related topics promoting education and innovation in the industry.   

Würth Knowing, inspired by Würth Industry North America’s industry-renowned Fastener Academy training, dives into topics related to fastener engineering, bolted joint design, and fastener assembly. From basic to complex concepts—discussion, demonstrations, testing, and even a funny story or two help us learn and understand the science behind fastening! Join our very own Randy Lammers, Technical Instructor, and Aaron Keevan, Applications Engineer, in Randy’s Texas workshop to discover what’s Würth Knowing.

Meet the Hosts:

Randy Lammers | Technical Instructor

What is your favorite part of your job?

I enjoy utilizing the vast experience I’ve obtained over the last 40-plus years to teach what I have learned. It’s particularly inspiring to see someone’s lightbulb come on when they finally comprehend a concept or point being taught.

Randy Lammers              

Aaron Keevan | Applications Engineer

What has been your favorite part of creating Würth Knowing?

It has been so awesome to collaborate with my fellow fastener nerd Randy, our marketing folks, and video production crew to transition complex technical fastener concepts into fun and engaging video content. I really loved the design process to create the physical set. It started as collaborative ideas on paper, and most of our ideas were successfully transformed into reality.
