Don’t call them screws, they’re Fasteners! The Fastener Industry produces hardware devices that are used to join or affix two or more objects together. They are usually used to create non-permanent joints so that the joints can be removed or dismantled without damaging the joining components. Fasteners are used in Aerospace, Automotive, Building and Construction, Furniture, Industrial Machinery, Motors and Pumps, and many other industries.
Why is Fastener Testing So Important?
Fastener testing is an essential safeguard, ensuring that seemingly simple components like bolts, screws and nuts meet the precise torque specifications their applications require. In many industries, like aerospace, military, and transportation, fastener performance isn’t a matter of chance – it’s a matter of life and safety. A.K.O.’s fastener testing equipment can be used manually or configured with a motor to automatically test the integrity of the fastener.
