EFC International Expands Its Offering of Lock-Bolts
July 1, 2014 – St. Louis, MO
EFC International, a leading provider of specialty engineered fastener component parts, is now providing access to lock-bolt fastening technology from TITGEMEYER. LockBolt systems are offered in a wide variety of sizes to accommodate a broad array of grip range requirements, panel thicknesses and hole sizes, as well as joint strength needs. The two-piece system (pin and collar) are available in steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Features and benefits includes: vibration resistance, permanent clamp force, multiple head styles/configurations, fast and easy installation and color coding options.
Standard LockBolt Systems
A high performance pin and collar fastening system. The two part system comprises a pin, with defined break-neck grove, and a collar. Once installed, it provides the ultimate in vibration resistance with no loosening. Pin and collars provide high shear and tensile strength and a permanent clamp force to the work piece. Lock-bolt pins and collars have a defined grip range – the total material thickness must be within the grip range of the pin.
MultiGrip LockBolt Systems
A high performance pin and collar fastening system with extra wide grip range. This two part system comprises a pin, with integrated variable break-point, and a multi-grip flanged collar. The work-piece must be accessible from both sides – the swaging of the collar onto the pin is achieved using a power tool. As with standard lock-bolt systems, multi-grip pin and collars provide high shear and tensile strength and a permanent clamp force to the work piece.
EFC International is an ISO 9001:2008-certified leading provider of specialty metal and plastic components, fasteners, and clamping technologies to OEM and Distributor markets. EFC provides customers with one source for engineered specialty fasteners and components, a high level of engineering and product support, and strategically located, full-service warehouses.
