New Floating Fastener
BFGoodrich Rivnut® Engineered
Fasteners, a business unit of
BFGoodrich Aerospace, has devel- oped an innovative, new floating fastener designed for quick, effi- cient installation where a blind ap- plication is complicated by hole misalignment.
The Rivnut fastener, called the
Floatnut™, has a floating nut plate that allows for quick, one-sided in- stallation in blind applications without the repeat drilling of holes.
Originally designed for use in air- craft structures, the Floatnut can also be used in other blind and non- blind applications where misaligned holes are a problem
According to BFGoodrich offi- cials, the Floatnut fastener is the only known nut plate in the fastener industry that can be used in blind applications.
The new Floatnut high-perform-
The BFGoodrich Floatnut high-performance floating fastener. ance floating fastener is available in steel (including type 4037) and stainless steel (including 300 series) and comes in countersunk or flat head styles. In addition to the stan- dard non-ribbed, non-keyed shank style, the Floatnut is also available with a ribbed shank for superior anti-rotation and installation in alu- minum and lower strength materi- als. A keyed shank style is available for higher strength materials.
Floatnut fasteners are designed to obtain a .020-inch to .032-inch float in all directions and are available with locking and non-locking threads. Thread locking can be ob- tained to MIL-N-25027 require- ments.
For more than 50 years, BFGood- rich Rivnut fastening systems have been used worldwide in hundreds of fastener applications. Rivnut fas- tener systems are used in the aero- space, defense, automotive and con- sumer products industries.
