Bolt system resists effects of vibration for safer joint design

It is vital that joints holding sub-assemblies together remain secure. Bolts need to be easily removable during maintenance, but resist loosening effects of vibrations and dynamic loads. Csaba Madru reports

Tighter control of joining processes boosts non-threaded techniques

Product designers often rule out riveting and similar non-threaded fastening techniques, viewing them as suitable only for applications where there is no need for tight process control. However, as Paul Stevens reports, modern monitoring and servo control capabilities are creating new opportunities for these economical joining methods
