The aerospace fasteners industry has evolved in synchronicity with the aerospace industry. Development of aircraft for commercial, shipping, military and business use, along with ballistic missiles and rockets, exerts significant performance pressure on aircraft fasteners. Fasteners are required to be highly durable to withstand extreme gravitational stresses. Even though fasteners account for less than three percent of aircraft manufacturing cost, they represent important components that influence the overall safety and efficiency of an aircraft. The aerospace sector uses a variety of fasteners for example bolts, nuts, washers, rivets, collars, screws, spacers and pins. All these fasteners are required to be certified to rigorous standards managing their production and use.

Fasteners are critical components fixing or holding together two openings of a part. Advances in the aerospace fastening technology has enabled these components to be extremely resilient, providing high levels secure and safe connections or joints. Advances in precision engineering have enabled manufacturers to develop custom fastening products based on national and international requirements. Furthermore, improvement in technology enables focus on quality and function of fasteners in order to comply with rising focus on safety and security of aircraft components. Robotic fastening processes offering benefits such as low cost of airframe assembly labour, reduced variability in assembly, as well as improved assembly throughput, are growing in popularity.
