Fasteners

Fasteners are discrete assembly items that are used to join together the various components of a part. A fastener can be a bolt and nut, a screw, a rivet, or even a staple. However, the majority of fasteners used in industry are threaded fasteners. These devices typically allow for the assembly and disassembly of components.

These classes cover the basic types of threaded and non-threaded fasteners. They also provide an overview of their components and applications and the various types of tools commonly used in assembly. Intermediate-level classes focus on the key properties of steel fasteners, common fastener failures, as well as the importance of torque and how it is derived and applied to bolted joints.
