The Fastener Training Institute (FTI) is hosting “Fastening 101: Understanding the Basics of Threaded Fasteners and the Industry that Produces Them” — a live, virtual training that’s adapted from FTI’s popular Fastening 101 course, typically offered at the annual Fastener Fair USA.
Sponsored by Star Stainless, this must-take class will explore fastener engineering, product and design basics, and how parts are made. It will take place on November 17 and November 18 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. PT.
Fastening 101 offers a thorough understanding of the fastener industry, including products, applications, industries, and more. It’s ideal for industrial, automotive, aerospace, and military users. This virtual class is a fit for anyone in the fastener industry interested in broadening their knowledge and attendees will discover much more than the basics.
Industry expert Laurence Claus will lead a day-long intensive training opportunity for fastener users, distributors, purchasers, engineers, sales, and manufacturers.
When students register they will be mailed course information and hands-on materials ahead of time.
Topics covered will include:
• Fastener design and material options
• Head styles and drive features
• Heat-treatments, platings, and coatings
• Market segments
• Cost differences between fasteners
• Basic fastener engineering concepts
• Torque, tightening, tension, stress, and bolt strength
• Thread-forming in steel, light metals, aluminum, magnesium, and plastic
• Types of thread pitches, why they are different, and the basic concept of thread fit
