Keeping together is Progress!
Fasteners are the hardware devices that mechanically affix two or more objects together. It is a non-permanent joint which can be dis-mantled any time without creating any damages. Fasteners are one among the unavoidable factors of construction industry. Welding is an alternative for fasteners, however it cannot be a replacement for the use of fasteners as it has many advantages that welding cannot provide.
In some instances, it s critical that the bonds you create during a manufacturing process be as consistent as possible. The issue of consistency can usually be solved very easily when you use regular fasteners such as bolts and nuts. As long as you make sure that they are installed using the same torque and at an equal distance from each other, you can be assured that the weight will be distributed evenly among them. That is why it is said with fasteners comes consistency.
As we all know welding brings infrastructure together and it will make the whole installation a permanent one. It has got its advantages but has its demerits as well. If a part of the installation needs any replacement, then we will have to take down the entire structure to do the maintenance of a welded structure. Whereas the dismantling capability of fasteners helps us to undo the fastening of that particular part of the structure and replace it. It is much faster, simpler and cheaper.
If a major infrastructure made needs inspection, such as bridge or metro rails you will have to pay attention to ease the inspection process. When you have a weld in place, it s usually more difficult to do a visual inspection. You will often need to employ the use of more sophisticated equipment such as an x-ray machine to find out if there are cracks in the welds. Another advantage of fasteners is the ease it brings in the entire inspection process.
The benefits of fasteners would impact a variety of industries. For example, in construction, the bolt could be utilized to create earthquake-resistant structures or in situations where holes do not line up. In general fasteners can be used for anything, basically, that is not parallel or aligned or needs to move sideways.
