Industrial fasteners are a common component type to countless assemblies and applications, used to secure two or more objects together in a permanent or semi-permanent fashion. With semi-permanent fastener types, one may remove the fastener without breaking the component, allowing for maintenance and replacement to be carried out with ease. With permanent fasteners, on the other hand, one must break the joint itself. Fasteners are found in countless areas, ranging from the assembly of chairs to the formation of bridges and aircraft. Depending on the materials secured and operational requirements, there are various types of industrial fasteners that may be used, each with its unique characteristics and roles.
