Manufacturing plants and the equipment inside these plants rely heavily on the use of industrial fasteners. For example, a manufacturing plant is made up of numerous manufacturing systems and mechanical assemblies that are also made up of multiple, individual machines assembled together. Every machine and component are held together by various fastener components. While fasteners for manufacturing plants may be small or even tiny in size, they play a huge role in providing the necessary support, security, longevity, and safety of the products they hold together. In most cases, when a fastener fails, the system, machine, or equipment in a manufacturing plant will fail as well. This causes financial and productivity loss due to machine failure and process downtime.
When it comes to industrial manufacturing applications, different fastener and material types offer different advantages in different applications. Thus, selecting the proper fastener for the right application is critical. For example, fasteners that demonstrate both exceptional tensile and fatigue strength have wide applications in joining parts where continuous rotation and wear and tear occur. Proper selection of fasteners can help overcome assembly and operational challenges, solve quality issues, and reduce cost and maintenance of a machines used for industrial manufacturing applications.
U-Bolt-It understands that the correct industrial fastener helps ensure industrial manufacturing systems come together and stay together for the intended life of the assembly and that these machines or equipment perform as expected. By understanding your industrial fastening requirements, we can supply you with high-quality fasteners and replacement fasteners for unique OEM products. In an industry where critical tolerances and exacting specifications are demanded, we can create all kinds of custom-made specialty fasteners to keep your critical industrial manufacturing applications running efficiently and effectively.
TYPES OF INDUSTRIAL FASTENERS
Systems, machines, and equipment used for manufacturing applications must be able to withstand very demanding and aggressive environments. Some of the more stressed out components of such applications are the nuts and bolts that hold it all together. Because fastener failure is not an option, variables such as strength, vibration, fatigue, temperature, movement, fit, and corrosion all come into play when deciding the right fastener for each application.
Fasteners for manufacturing plants must demonstrate the following performance and mechanical characteristics:
- High corrosion and oxidation resistance
- High tensile, shear, and fatigue strength
- Heavy-duty construction for high-strength applications
- Superior thermal resistance
- Excellent resistance to pressure and vibration
- Heat levels of toughness and durability
- Hex Bolts
- Carriage Bolts
- Eye Bolts
- Heavy Hex Nuts
- Flange Bolts
- Flat Washers
- Flange Nuts
- Plastic Fasteners
- Lock Washers
- Sheet Metal Screws
- Wood Screws
- Hose Clamps
- Concrete Anchors
Certain material type for fasteners used in the industrial manufacturing are more desirable, because the demonstrate superior performance in extreme temperatures and pressures and provide excellent resistance to solvents, chemicals, steam, and gases. Some common materials used for fasteners used in the industrial manufacturing include galvanized steel, stainless steel, carbon nylon, and superalloys, such as Monel®, Iconel®, and Hastalloy®.
We provide fasteners in a multitude of materials:
- 304, 304L, 304H
- 316, 316L
- Alloy 20
- Monel 400
- Duplex 2205
- A193 B7, A193 L7
- Inconel 718, Inconel 800
