Kwikbolt Products

 

Technology Range

Our standard technology range of products includes 5 products: Hurricane, Lightning, Storm, Thunder and Cyclone, which all provide single-sided temporary fastener solutions for aerospace applications from 2.2mm (5/64 inch) to 25.4mm (1" inch) via lengths of 0.4mm (1/64 inch) to 152.4mm (6 inches). Most of our product ranges are available in both fully-flush (countersunk) and protruding head and can be ordered directly from us or via our distribution network. All our products provide doweling and clamping to ensure correct placement, maximum hold and are rated for 500 cycles.

 
 

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 high 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 high clamp and sheer performance.

Thunder | Kwikbolt

Our Thunder design is focused on applications that require small blind side clearance and delivers high load, large hole size application using a driven legged cylinder design to engage clamping, drive the legs into the head and pull back on itself to provide clamping. As the ground legged cylinder moves into the head, 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 high load and smaller hole size, using 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 high clamp and sheer performance.

Cyclone | Kwikbolt

Our Cyclone design is focused on applications that require a large grip range and do not mind a large head. This product is suitable for very high load applications and can operate at small hole diameters; the product is driven by a bung head bar that is pulled into the head of the fastener and drives the clamping force. As the bar moves the ground collet, our Cyclone Kwikbolt keeps holes true and provides a very high clamp and 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 our 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 and Torx style 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 Boxes

Our Kwikbolt Boxes are foam cut industrial boxes that allow for your Kwikbolts and Kwikbolt Tools to be stored in the perfect environment and are located close to the build line. Each Kwikbolt Box provides simple and clear item locations and informs shop floor staff of missing items, this helps provide a quick and effective installation and removal as well as minimising damage and lost parts.
