DeltaBolt® - innovation – that’s the difference Δ

Practical innovation

  • We combined our manufacturing expertise with state-of-the-art computer simulation to create a superior pin and collar fastening system.
  • Every aspect of our well-established TIFAS LockBolt pin and collar system was analysed and optimised to produce DeltaBolt.
  • The many benefits of DeltaBolt are available on existing applications or in particular for new applications where higher performance is demanded.

DeltaBolt® - benefits for you

Safer

  • Higher strength than other lockbolt systems.
  • Increased strength offers an additional factor of safety for existing applications.
  • Manufactured in accordance with international standards for industrial fasteners.
  • Thoroughly tested and independantly validated for guaranteed installed performance and absolute vibration resistance.

Easier

  • Simple and fast installation.
  • Can be installed using industry standard tooling.
  • No new tooling required for existing applications.
  • Wider than standard grip range with flanged  collar increases versatility and reduces inventory.
  • Only simple operator training required.

No maintenance

  • After installation collar is permanently cold formed on the pin locking grooves.
  • Grooves are annular so collar cannot un-wind.
  • Permanent clamp is applied after installation and eliminates the need to check for loss of prestress as required for nuts and bolts.
  • Absolute vibration resistance independently verified and guaranteed.

Cost saving

  • Cost effective alternative to welding or bolting on high strength applications. 
  • Fast and efficient installation – no rework required.
  • No added tooling cost on existing applications.
  • Efficient method of joining dissimilar materials.
  • Visual inspection eliminates the need for expensive procedures like x-ray testing of welds.

Time saving

  • Requires only simple hole preparation.
  • No time spent reworking after installation to repair heat damage.
  • Can be used on pre-finished materials – no need to touch up damaged surfaces.
  • Visual inspection - quick and effective control of the installation process.


Quality

  • Designed, manufactured and tested in accordance with international standards.
  • Manufacturing processes approved to the international automotive standard ISO/TS 16949.
  • Quality products ensured by the DeltaBolt Δ identification mark on pins and collars.
  • Efficient method of joining dissimilar materials.
  • Identification marks are visible even after installation.
