Swagefast lockbolt pins and collars

Second Quarter 2021 Other technologies

BMG’s locally manufactured Swagefast lockbolt pins and collars ensure increased productivity and reliability in heavy duty, high vibration applications, especially where structural integrity is critical and where safety cannot be compromised.

“Swagefast lockbolt pins and collars − which are designed to replace bolted and welded joints − provide a high strength, vibration-resistant fastening solution that reduces downtime and improves safety standards by removing sheet gap and maintaining tension over time,” says business unit manager, Maryna

Werner. “These pins and collars are tamper-proof and fast and easy to install. An important advantage for users is that no re-torqueing is necessary. The Swagefast fastening system is also fully compatible with existing tooling.

Swagefast pins and collars meet stringent quality and safety specifications and are suitable for applications where high strength, permanent fixtures are required and where welding is not an option. This system is used with confidence because it meets or exceeds SAE Grade 5 or ASTM A-325 and ISO (8.8) strength requirements, ensuring high clamp force and tensile and shear strength. Typical applications include railway coach and truck body manufacturers, as well as petrochemical, mining, sugar mills, agricultural and construction operations. These fastening components are also suitable for vibrating screens, solar panel frames and lattice towers in electrical power generation.

BMG’s Swagefast rail fastening systems are fitted with specially designed pull and clamp tooling for vibration resistance and reduced fatigue. This range ensures greater track integrity and reduced maintenance requirements in rail infrastructure applications.
