POP Avdel breakstem rivets are a highly effective way to lower assembly costs and reduce inventories associated with the production of appliances. Specifically, leaks and rework inherent during washing machine pump assembly are virtually eliminated using QPM EC tooling from STANLEY Assembly Technologies.
Alternative energy sources are quickly gaining popularity because they effectively complement primary energy sources, especially where quick storage and discharge of energy is required. Wire Thread inserts and other precision machined fasteners from STANLEY Engineered Fastening are frequently used in terminal assemblies and battery racking systems.
The perfect solution for metal garage doors, Multi-Grip™ rivets from POP Avdel reduce inventory complexity and lower costs while satisfying structural integrity. Ideal for products with varying thicknesses produced on the same assembly line. POP Avdel HR® rivets eliminate screws from locker assemblies, allowing lower costs, increased corrosion resistance, productivity, joint strength, and the removal of sharp edges. STANLEY Assembly Technologies' QPM DC tools are ideal for furniture assembly, when different wood types and various hardnesses are being used.
Breakstem open-end rivets can be used as part of an automatic riveting system to increase installation efficiency, lower material inventory costs, and provide rattle and vibration resistance. STANLEY Assembly Technologies' PSI line of pneumatic transducer tooling can be integrated into shroud assembly production to increase ergonomics on-line while ensuring quality fastening.
QPM DC tools from STANLEY Assembly Technologies are an extremely effective way to speed up assembly production and ensure quality joint fastening and error proofing. Ultrasert® inserts from Dodge provide optimal retention in thermoplastic materials. Dodge Ultraserts provide a reliable means of fastening plastic components to the engine in the high-vibration environment of lawn and garden equipment.
Breakstem open-end rivets from POP Avdel are ideal for light fixture assembly applications. With custom-designed rivets and the timesaving Auto-Feed Point and Set system, installation time, complexity, and costs can be reduced substanitially. When used for modular lighting display racks, POP Avdel HR rivets ease assembly, reduce inventories, and lower costs while meeting UL test requirements. Used to reliably fasten dissimilar materials, threaded inserts from Heli-Coil are ideal for LED lighting.
Fasteners for pumps in agricultural, industrial, chemical, mining and oil and gas industries are frequently subjected to repeated exposure to wash downs, chemicals, salt spray and vibration. Self locking internally threaded fasteners and blind fastening systems, available in 316 Grade / A4 Stainless Steel are perfectly suitable for corrosive, hostile environments and heavy vibration. Wire thread inserts are also used in pump and valve applications, providing a strong fastening joint in a relatively soft material such as machined or cast aluminum.
The power tools industry, whether serving housework and garden tasks or large construction projects can rely on STANLEY Engineered Fastening to provide specialty fasteners which solve assembly challenges, increase production speed and efficiency, provide anti-vibration locking features, and offer corrosion resistant coatings.
