Speed Fastening

Speed fastening is a unique assembly system designed for rapid and reliable fastening in medium and high volume applications. Originally designed for the aviation industry, speed fastening is now used by many of the world's foremost manufacturing companies in sectors as diverse as household goods, lighting, electronic subassemblies, light metal fabrication and automotive. Speed fasteners are available in a wide range of materials, finishes, lengths and diameters and are ideal for fastening metals, plastics, composites and electronic components. Speed fasteners are single piece fasteners which are either magazine fed or fed via a vibrating bowl to a wide choice of installation equipment. This ranges from the ultra lightweight 753 hand tool to fully automated, state of the art assembly systems.

Increased manufacturing throughput 
A speed fastening system can be fully optimized to give cycle times of less than two seconds. This rapid, blindsided process delivers a throughput up to four times greater than a traditional threaded or riveted solution.

Reduced component handling
The fasteners are fed in a magazine or into a bowl feeder. This eliminates the need for individual component handling and saves damaged hands and time.

Speed Fastener No component spillage
Because the fasteners are held captively they should not be dropped onto the floor or into the application.
 
This avoids wasted time, improves product quality and improves the workplace environment.

No stem loss
Traditional breakstem fasteners all too often suffer from stem loss once installed. This can lead to application rattle, electrical short circuits or worse. Speed fasteners have no stems.

Improved joint quality
Speed installation technology provides a consistent, repeatable joint. What's more, unlike threaded fasteners, there is no requirement for torque control - no more problems of stripped holes or loose joints.

Improved joint performance
Once installed speed fasteners give excellent clamp up, shear and tension performance. They are also virtually immune from vibration loosening.

Process flexibility
Speed fastening systems can be used for low volume, off-line batch or jobbing shop work through to flow line processes. From hand held tools to multiheaded modular workstations, we can design a speed fastening system to suit your assembly requirements. The fasteners are available in a wide range of materials, finishes, lengths and diameters, ideal for fastening metals, plastics, composites and electronic components. A wide variety of products in many industries are assembled with these systems including automotive, electronics, domestic appliance and general industrial.
