Fasteners are tools that join multiple objects with permanent or non-permanent joints. Heat sealing, welding, crimping, glueing, stapling, nailing and fusing are examples of permanent joins.
Fastening equipment in NZ are used in diverse industries such as:
- Building and Construction
- Joinery and furniture manufacture
- Carpet and vinyl laying
- Pallet, case and trellis assembly
- Food processing and packaging
- Bed mattress and seat manufacture and upholstery
- Printers and book binders
The types of fastening equipment in NZ is as diverse as the industries in which it is used:
- Threaded (bolts, nuts)
- Set screws (threaded)
- Heat fusion
- Pneumatic Nailers
- Pneumatic Staplers
- Rebar tying tools
Here are some starting points to look for in your equipment when assessing it. The proof is always in the pudding, so ask your peers on sites and plants for their reviews on equipment they’ve used. Here are your starting points:
- Durability - Durability is not all about strength as brittleness can be a weakening element. Is the equipment strong but with the ‘flexibility’ to absorb impact shock?
- Corrosion Resistance - Sometimes, smaller parts of a piece of equipment can corrode, weakening the entire structure. Ask about the corrosion resistance of all the smaller parts as well.
- Galvanic Corrosion Properties - Would the fastening equipment you are looking at benefit from galvanic corrosion properties?
- Price - The higher price usually means a better piece of equipment and the cheapest is almost guaranteed to be the first one to fail or break.
Industrial fasteners are specialised for the operational and output requirements of large industries such as automobile, aeroplane, spacecraft and rocket production, appliance manufacturing, industrial machinery production and large scale construction or civil infrastructure.
The next aspects you should consider when selecting fastening equipment in NZ are:
- The threading options
- The expected live load on the fastener and weight restrictions
- The equipment stiffness
- Ease of use, including carrying
- Sensitivity to temperature, water and diverse corrosion
- Use in tight spaces
- Expected materials to be used on
Fastening equipment comes in a variety of materials:
- Stainless steel, a combination of low carbon steel and chromium, gives a greater degree of corrosion resistance but is by no means corrosion-proof. It needs to be maintained to preserve its corrosion resistance.
- Steel is the most widely used material and can be untreated or treated with chrome, zinc galvanising.
- Alloy steel bolts are usually untreated with a blackish colour. They are strong but some are brittle, and thus their durability rating drops slightly.
- Aluminium has good corrosion resistance but also needs care to maintain that resistance, i.e. wipe it clean regularly and it will serve you for many more years.
- Chrome has excellent resistance to corrosion if quality chrome plating is used.
- Silicon bronze is a combination of tin, copper and a small amount of silicon that works very well in harsh marine environments. Yes, it has excellent corrosion resistance. It also has high strength.
