Three Critical Fastener Truths

“Your bolts are breaking in my engine blocks!”

The purchasing manager was furious!

This was a massive, costly failure. Someone would pay.

The unimpressed fastener engineer on the other end of the phone replied wryly. “What did you want to break?”

WHAT????

It was simple. Tremendous shear and tension had built, and something had to break. “Did you want it to be the bolt? Or the block?”

This made the auto executive stop.

The fastener engineer did not design the engine. He did not design the joint. His company supplied the bolts that held the engine together. And the bolts were up to the specifications they should have been made to. There was no disagreement as to any of these facts.

The problem here was not a bad bolt, it was a bad joint design, resulting in a tremendous strain on the joint. The joint design was creating shear on the bolt, far exceeding what the bolt was designed for.

Something had to give, and the preferred item to give was the bolt going into the block, not the block itself. Now this happened around the 1980’s, so the dollars might have changed, but the principle hasn’t: It’s much less expensive to replace a $15 bolt than it is to replace a $1,500 engine block.

How to reduce "Cam-Out" Cam-Out – we’ve probably all experienced it. Perhaps we’re putting a faceplate on an outlet, or driving into metal. So we pull out our trusty slotted screwdriver, and start to turn the screw. But the slot depth is shallow, perhaps it’s a struck slot instead of a saw slot, or maybe, this scre...

Why Cast?

https://www.fast-rite.com/news-events/why-cast/

Why Cast? Casting is most often used for making complex shapes that would be difficult or uneconomical to make by other methods. Precision engineered castings are found everywhere. Your car, for example. The water pump, alternator, air conditioning clutch, perhaps the brackets holding these devices, manifolds...

Aggregate your way to cost effective and stress-free precision stamping supply. If you’ve ever walked into a major auto production facility, you may have heard a rhythmic thud in the background – perhaps a massive press stamping out the unibody for a sedan or SUV. This is the beginning of the manufacturing process, but there are many other parts to go that will need to be [...
