Verfahren zur Qualitätskontrolle von Verbindungselementen

There are many different quality requirements that our team takes into account before we recommend a fastener for a particular product. The first factor is the life expectancy of the product in which it will be used. It is important that the fasteners will hold up as long as the product in order to avoid productivity pitfalls with continuous replacements. Next, we examine finish requirements. Is there a corrosion factor at work? Material requirements are also closely considered because fastener strength is important. Temperature extremes are also a crucial component of material requirements because severe heat or cold can affect fastener performance. Also, will the joint be exposed to a corrosive environment? The more knowledge we have about what the fastener will have to withstand, the better position we’re in to make a suitable recommendation. (more…)
