Kwikbolt Products

 

Global Aerospace Fasteners

Our standard off-the-shelf product range provides single-sided temporary fastener solutions from 3.96mm (5/32 inch) to 25.4mm (1" inch) via lengths of 1mm (3/64 inch) to 152.4mm (6 inches). Most of our aerospace fasteners are available in both fully-flush (countersunk) and protruding head and can be ordered direct from us or via our distribution network. All products provide doweling and clamping to ensure correct placement and maximum hold.

 
 

  Hurricane | Kwikbolt

Our Hurricane design is focused on high load, larger hole size applications and uses an expanding petal design to enlarge on the blind side of a structure and pull back on itself to provide clamping. As the petal moves through a ground cylinder our Hurricane Kwikbolt keeps holes true and provides a high clamp and sheer performance.

Lightning | Kwikbolt

Our Lightning design is focused on low load, smaller hole size applications and uses an expanding leg design to enlarge on the blind side of a structure and pull back over the main body to provide clamping. As the legs move over a ground cylinder, our Lightning Kwikbolt keeps holes true and provides a low clamp and high sheer performance.

Thunder | Kwikbolt

Our Thunder design is focused on applications that require small blind side clearance and delivers high load, larger hole size applications and uses a driven bar design to engage clamping and drive the legs into the head and pull back on itself to provide clamping. As the bar moves through a ground collet, our Thunder Kwikbolt keeps holes true and provides a high clamp and sheer performance.

Storm | Kwikbolt

Our Storm design is focused on wet applications that require low load, smaller hole size applications and uses a clean and clamp process via an expanding leg design to enlarge on the blind side of a structure and pull back over the main body to provide clamping. As the legs move over a ground cylinder, our Storm Kwikbolt keeps holes true, clean and provides a low clamp and high sheer performance.

Bespoke

 

Aerospace Fastener Solutions

We also provide a bespoke temporary blind fastener service to businesses with more specific requirements. We will design, manufacture, test and supply bespoke products, which undergo a stringent trial and evaluation process to ensure that the design meets all of our customers’ business challenges with the minimum number of versions. Once approved, this bespoke aerospace fastener is produced in volume to provide the build line with our fastener technology solution.


Our bespoke service can be requested via email, info@kwikbolt.com, and one of our engineers will contact you to discuss your requirements and start the process.


The information we need is:

- Diameter of holes
- Hole tolerance
- Lengths of doweling required (min / max)
- Grip ranges (min / max)
- Clamp loads requirements
- Head configuration
- Materials being clamped / dowelled
- Estimated quantities needed
- Estimated delivery date


Your new design will be with you in 4 weeks for an engineering review.

 

Accessories

 

At Kwikbolt we provide a complete fastening solution to customers and thus we have a full range of accessories to support the installation and removal of all of our fasteners. Each piece of equipment has been designed and modified to ensure the optimum performance of our Kwikbolts and to provide the quickest installation, removal and maintenance.

 
 

Installation / Removal Tools

Our nut runners are set with the torque requirements for the correct installation and removal of your Kwikbolts, along with the interface for the head configuration and driver type. These standard installation tools are tested and modified before shipment for use with the Kwikbolt product range.

 
 

Tooling Interface

To ensure that each nut runner integrates correctly with all of the Kwikbolt sizes, we have created a range of interfaces. These consist of holders that integrate with the nut runner depending on the interface with the Kwikbolt head type (countersunk / protruding); designed to maximise the life cycle of our Kwikbolts and to provide an easy installation and removal process.

 
 

Tooling Tips (x3)  

To drive the mechanics of the Kwikbolt we provide a range of tool tips based on our deep hex design to maximise engagement. These interchangeable tips allow for a quick change over.

 

 
 

Batteries

We provide rechargeable batteries for all of the nut runners that we offer. We have a standardised product range and so our batteries work across a range of nut runners and electrical equipment.

 
 

Chargers

All batteries provided by us are rechargeable; we provide a standard battery charger to cover all battery types. 

 
 

Kwikbolt Trolley

The easiest way to store Kwikbolts and all the accessories is in a Kwikbolt trolley. We provide them in 1, 2 or 3 layer combinations depending on the amount of equipment and application.
