Fastener Safety Training/Engineering
Maintenance crews need to know what to look out for when overhauling and checking systems; they do not need to go over the basics again and again. Our fastener safety training and engineering service allows us to train maintenance staff and other workers on how to identify unsafe assemblies and potential fastener failure problems to prevent a catastrophe. We can also hold basic training classes for sales personnel and advanced classes for engineers.read more »
Fastener/Metallurgical Failure Analysis
Sometimes, an accident can occur not because of a loose nut or bolt, but because the part itself deteriorated. Bolt failure is enough to cause a chain reaction of destruction, causing loss of property and even life in more severe cases. You can send us a sample of the failed fasteners, and we can study it to determine the nature of the part’s failure. Our metallurgical expertise allows us to accurately determine the intrinsic strength of a certain part and how much mechanical stress it can endure until it fails. By learning from past failures, you can potentially avert a similar disaster from happening again.
