Unlock Possibilities with an Unlimited Range of Products from All State Fastener

10/26/2016

When you think about vendor managed inventory, what comes to mind? Probably the most common response to this question is a single word: inventory. Without a massive selection of products available, you risk not having access to the critical inventory items that your business needs to maintain its uptime, ensure consistent, high quality output and preserve your line’s efficiency. Vendor managed inventory without a diverse range of ready-to-ship products is ineffective, results in unnecessary overhead and puts artificial limits on your production capabilities. That’s why, at All State Fastener, we boast an unlimited range of products, offered through a globally integrated database and delivered on time, every time.

In many cases, a joint will have to operate under conditions of extreme temperature, vibration, pressure, and shock, so do not underestimate the complexity of choosing the correct size and material. The goal is to select a fastener that will create a clamp force that prevents separation and movement of the clamped parts once external forces are applied. A common mistake is to oversize the fastener, which can lead to a joint with a low clamp load, high risk for failure, and difficulty tightening.
