3V Fasteners Company Inc.'s externally threaded NAS and MS parts are manufactured from
traditional titanium alloy TI-6AL-4V and weigh 40 percent less than comparable
non-titanium hardware. They are useful for applications onboard commercial and
military aircraft from actuators to seat track assemblies, among many others.
3V titanium fasteners have a 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 fatigue performance. The fasteners can be
provided in various head types (12 point, hex, flush, flat fillister, and pan)
and drives in thread sizes -04 to -8 and diameters .093 to .500. All can be
offered either uncoated or with aluminum or cadmium plate.
The transformative nature of designing and making things was the overarching, common theme at separate conferences held in Boston by two giants in the PLM space: Autodesk, with its Accelerate 2015, and Siemens’s Industry Analyst Conference 2015.
