Titanium bolts and screws for aerospace applications

California based 3V Fasteners Company, a subsidiary of PennEngineering, now supplies titanium bolts and screws to satisfy standard designs or accommodate unique customer requirements for a wide range of attachment applications in the aerospace industry.

The externally threaded NAS and MS parts are manufactured from traditional titanium alloy TI-6AL-4V and weigh 40% less than comparable non-titanium hardware. They ideally suit applications on board commercial and military aircraft from actuators to seat track assemblies, among many others.

In addition to inherent weight savings, 3V titanium fasteners exhibit high strength-to-weight ratio, high-temperature properties and stability, low density, and corrosion resistance. Parts can be manufactured to achieve 160 KSI tensile strength, 95KSI shear strength, and demonstrate excellent fatigue performance.

Fasteners can be provided in various head types – 12 point, hex, flush, flat fillister, and pan – and all can be offered either uncoated or with aluminium or cadmium plate.
