Some applications & solutions

  • Slat sealing connections (movable structures in composites): Airbus A320/A350, Embraer ERJ170/190 and Bombardier C-series. Stainless steel Tubtara® blind rivet nut with thread locking
  • Airport lighting: Tubtara® blind rivet nut in steel with very large head to increase force distribution. The head is also acting as a spacer.
  • Aircraft trolleys: Tubtara® blind rivet nut with thread locking (locking torque requirement also after several times reconnections)
  • Aircraft seat components: Airbus A320/A321/A380 - Boeing B737/B747/B767/B777. Tubtara® blind rivet nut with special torque requirements

‘The future depends on what you do today’, Mahatma Ghandi said.

With 5kg payload and 9 laps of 100m the Aerospace Engineer Students of the University of Leuven (Belgium) became 11th of 29 participants at the Air Cargo Challenge 2015 in Hamburg (Germany).  They used stainless steel Tubtara’s with special torque requirements to mount different aircraft components onto the fuselage of their RC controlled aircraft.
