When putting together any assembly of parts, one will require a type of fastener to secure all parts in place. There are various fastener designs used across aerospace applications, and they each have different functions and advantages. While many fasteners used in aircraft are permanent, some applications require more temporary security from a removable fastener. For an easy to use fastener that is simple and quick to remove, Velcro fasteners prove advantageous. If you are currently in the market for a Velcro fastener or are simply looking to learn more about this temporary method of securing your parts and assemblies, the following blog will cover everything you need to know.

When selecting a fastener, you must take into account your application’s specifications. Versatile in function, there are many types of fasteners, all of which  vary in size, shape, and material composition. In particular, screws are a type of fastener that is made of metal and is characterized by its male thread with helical ridges. This blog will cover hex cap screws which are a type of fastener that have a solid hexagonal head.

A servo valve is a type of electrically-operating fluid management device, and such components are capable of managing hydraulic fluids as they are directed to an actuator. With a small electrical signal, servo valves can operate powerful hydraulic cylinders with ease. Within the realm of defense, servo valves are key elements of countless machinery, vehicles, and other assemblies, facilitating the operations of supersonic fighter jets, launch vehicles, RADAR arrays, missile systems, and so much more. Servo valves are also utilized for aircraft carriers, ensuring that they can operate safely and efficiently.

Fasteners are components that are crucial to aircraft construction, allowing for parts to be affixed in non-permanent and permanent fashions. When a threaded fastener such as a bolt is used for creating assemblies, a nut is always paired with the bolt in order to ensure that the connected objects are secure. As aircraft are often subject to high amounts of vibration during flight, nuts may loosen over time and lose their integrity. As such, special components known as lock nuts are often implemented in order to protect assemblies from loosening under vibration.

Fasteners are mechanical components used to join two or more objects. While other methods of joining exist, such as welding, brazing, adhesives, crimping, and more, many of these are examples of permanent joints. Fasteners form non-permanent joints and can be easily removed. Threaded fasteners are particularly effective at joining two objects thanks to their headed design. Threaded fasteners feature either internal or external screw threads, are easy to install, and just as easy to remove. The three most common types of threaded fasteners are screws, nuts, and bolts. In this blog, we will explain each of them, their unique characteristics, and their uses.

The theory of the olden days about the tighter a screw is, the more secure and dependable that mechanism becomes. Like many things from, “back in the day”, this theory was proven wrong because just because something is fitted tightly doesn’t mean it’s doing the job effectively. So, as it turns out, we were wrong about torque all along.
