Huck lock bolt and structural blind fasteners are designed to provide permanent, vibration-resistant joining solutions that result in consistent and reliable installations.
Available from Howmet Fastening Systems — a premier manufacturer of aerospace and industrial fasteners, latches, bearings, and installation tools — Huck lock bolts and structural blind rivets offer relatively high and consistent tensile, shear, and clamp properties. This means they are suited to applications where the joints are integral to the structure.
These advanced, two-piece fasteners are installed using a unique direct-tension/swaged-on method. This smooth, jolt-free process eliminates the potential for repetitive stress syndrome that can be a problem when torque wrenches are used.In addition, in many applications, HuckBolts have also been proven superior to welding in terms of speed and accuracy of installation, safety, and overall productivity.
HuckBolts are specially engineered for equipment that requires a reliably strong joint, even in extreme, high-vibration environments. Dozers, excavators, large hydraulically powered machinery, shredders, and other heavy equipment need the high-strength, vibration-resistant hold only Huck fasteners can deliver.
The provide a clean and safe alternative to welding and a more efficient fastening method than standard nuts and bolts, Huck fasteners offer benefits that other fastening methods cannot — including quick and easy installation, elimination of maintenance, and ultimately cost reductions.
