Hydraspeed R

Product Introduction :

Hydraspeed-R is a blind Speed Fastening System having a threaded, removable speed fastener that combines the speed of rivet placement with the benefits of being able to remove and re-fasten. Using a Hydraspeed-R rivet removes the need for costly tapping or thread forming operation whilst creating a higher vibration resistant ‘thread lock’ compared to standard screws.

Key Features & Benefits :

  • Circular expansion during installation to form a thread in host material
  • Removable for servicing with a hex key and reusable
  • Can be used to fasten most materials up to Vickers hardness 105 Hv5
  • Eliminates the need for costly tapping or thread-forming operations
  • Bright tin plated steel option for ease of soldering and increase electrical conductivity
  • Placed using a unique repetition mandrel system for high speed assembly
  • Can be bowl fed for larger volume applications using automated equipment
  • Various lengths available providing high clamp loads
  • Placed using a hexagon mandrel which expands the threaded diameter radially, Adjacent to its six corners.
  • Providing a higher vibration resistant "thread lock" in the parent material Compared to standard screws

Assembly Materials :

Hydraspeed-R can be used to fasten:

  • Depends on Hardness of base material.
  • Metal to plastic
  • Plastic to plastic
  • Aluminium alloy
