Vibration and shock can quickly impair joint integrity and affect overall product performance. Applications where a high level of vibration is prevalent demand the use of vibration proof fasteners to ensure that the integrity of structures is maintained. The Swagefast Fastening System offers a highly vibration resistant joint owing to its unique design in which the collar is swaged into the annular locking grooves of the Swagebolt – ensuring a permanent lock.
Proven for use in multiple industries, the Swagefast fastening system is ideal for heavy duty, high vibration applications, combining shear strength with quick and easy installation – resulting in a virtually fool proof solution that gives the assurance of long term joint reliability.
The majority of fasteners in the Swagefast system have been designed to meet or exceed SAE Grade 5 or ASTM A-325 and ISO (8.8) strength requirements, ensuring high clamp force and, tensile and shear strength, depending on the application.
The Swagefast Fastening System includes:
- Standard Swagebolts
- Step Down (SD) Oversized Swagebolts
- Blind Rivet Swagebolts (BRL)
- Stump Swagebolts (SL)
- Flush Break Mono Fasteners (MB)
- Flush Break Maxi Fasteners (MGB)
- Bodytainer Fasteners (BF)
- Flush Break Multi Fasteners (MGL)
Features and Benefits:
- Vibration resistant
- High shear strength
- High tensile strength
- Uniform clamping force
- Fast and easy installation
- Visual inspection
- Lower installed fastener costs
- Improved fabrication quality
- Reduced rework and scrap charges
- Minimal inspection costs
- Lower installer training costs
How to get maximum performance with Swagebolt pins and collars:
- Swagebolt pins and collars are lubricated to provide proper driving characteristics and should not be degreased.
- Installation surfaces should be 90° to the Swagebolt pin axis for normal conditions and spot face for other conditions.
- Collars may be driven on surfaces inclined to a maximum of 1 in 20 from the Swagebolt pin axis.
- Collars may be driven on curved surfaces with a minimum radius of 3 times the Swagebolt pin diameter.
- Collars should be removed from the application by splitting them axially with a collar splitter.
- In the case of replacement – if the hole sizing is not worn or oversized, a Swagebolt pin of the same diameter must be used. If the hole sizing is worn or oversized, a larger diameter Swagebolt pin should be used.
Considerations for selecting your Swagefast Fastening System:
- The material of the fastener or its coating should be compatible with the application’s material.
- The fastener diameter is determined by the shear and tensile strength required.
- The fastener length is determined by the total material thickness that requires fastening. Order by diameter required and the total material thickness that requires fastening.
- It is recommended that a standard (CS) collar is used where the holes on the application do not exceed the maximum hole sizing specifications.
- It is recommended that a flanged (CF) collar is used where the holes on the application are worn or sizing exceeds the maximum hole sizing specifications.
- Fastener head styles are determined by clearance requirements.
