Nevada-based fastener supplier Click Bond is launching its new LoMas screw at this year’s Farnborough Airshow. The product is an A286-grade stainless steel screw that is up to 50 percent lighter than alternatives and 17 percent lighter than titanium counterparts. The LoMas Screw will initially be available in 10 to 32 thread in 15 lengths from 0.250 to 2.00 inches with a variety of coatings.
The design of the LoMas Screw is hollow and features a washer that reduces parts count and decreases the risk of debris. According to Click Bond, the LoMas Screw can provide weight savings for aircraft and other weight-sensitive products.
