smaller thread sizes ideally suited for high-volume consumer and medical devices, among other applications. Among features and benefits, Phillips Screw highlights that the system’s unique geometric spiral design maximises recess wall
and driver contact to provide extremely high torque transfer without cam-out. The drive’s low-profile head and high-strength shallow recess additionally contribute to reducing overall fastener weight. Various fastener head styles can be accommodated.
New capability for aerospace attachment applications
3V® Fasteners Company Inc., based in Corona, CA, USA, has introduced
a new capability to supply titanium bolts and screws to satisfy standard designs or accommodate unique customer requirements for a wide range of attachment applications in the aerospace industry.
he externally threaded NAS and MS parts are manufactured from traditional titanium alloy TI-6AL-4V and weigh 40% less than comparable non-titanium hardware. They ideally suit applications onboard commercial and military aircraft from actuators to seat track assemblies, among many others. In addition to inherent weight savings, 3V Fasteners points out that its titanium fasteners exhibit high strength-to-weight
ratio, high-temperature properties and stability, low density, and corrosion resistance. Also, parts can be manufactured to achieve 160KSI tensile strength, 95KSI shear strength, and demonstrate excellent fatigue performance. 3V titanium fasteners can be provided in various head types (12 point, hex, flush, flat fillister, and pan) and drives in thread sizes -04 to -8 and diameters .093 to .500. All can be offered either uncoated or with aluminium or cadmium plate.
Forged M10 Tubtara® D
ejond explains that this development offers a new, cost saving solution to the industry because there is almost no waste during the forging process, as Dejond makes optimal use of the expensive 316 material.
Whereas the stainless 304 is used more in home and commercial
applications, the stainless 316 has proven its effectiveness in all circumstances, indoor as well as outdoor, where corrosion or higher temperatures are critical and a long-term, non-magnetic solution is required. Containing more than 2% molybdenum, the 316 material is effective
in environments exposed to chlorides, salt water and elevated temperatures. Having only just been launched, the stainless M10 programme is still in progress. Larger production volumes in round and hexagonal version, with open or closed end and different head forms offer good prospects for the future. Samples are available on request.
