BFGoodrich Rivnut® Engineered Fasteners, a business unit of BFGoodrich Aerospace, has developed an innovative, new floating fastener designed for quick, efficient installation where a blind application is complicated by hole misalignment.
The Rivnut fastener, called the Floatnut™, has a floating nut plate that allows for quick, one-sided installation in blind applications without the repeat drilling of holes.
Originally designed for use in aircraft structures, the Floatnut can also be used in other blind and nonblind applications where misaligned holes are a problem According to BFGoodrich officials, 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- 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 standard non-ribbed, non-keyed shank style, the Floatnut is also available with a ribbed shank for superior anti-rotation and installation in aluminum and lower strength materials.
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 obtained to MIL-N-25027 requirements.
For more than 50 years, BFGoodrich Rivnut fastening systems have been used worldwide in hundreds of fastener applications. Rivnut fastener systems are used in the aerospace, defense, automotive and consumer products industries.
