The article describes a new fastener item - screw M-Cut, which has been started selling  in Russia. Its features are detailed here. The author draws attention to the broad scope and economic effect of its use. Examples of application are given here.

On the Validity of determining the mechanical properties of high-strength bolts by testing processed (peeled) samples

The purpose of this study was to test the lawfulness of the definition of strength and plastic properties of high strength fasteners, having different structural states (manufactured by different technologies), by comparing the test results of full-size bolts and treated samples (peeled bolts).
Subjects of the study were bolts of experimental batch of M10x70 size and imported bolts, 8.8 class, of similar size.
The conclusions of the article provide recommendations for improving the current standards for fasteners testing.

RIVSET ® - systems for setting of self-penetrating rivets

One of the modern ways of thin sheet materials joining is a technology RIVSET ®, offered by BÖLLHOFF.
At present RIVSET technology is gaining more and more popularity in a variety of industries - from automotive to manufacturing of metal furniture, replacing traditional methods of connection and, at the first place, spot welding. One reason of it is the possibility of reliable connecting of various materials.
Self-penetrating rivets RIVSET ® differ in shape, geometric dimensions, the degree of hardness, the characteristics of surface coverage and are selected in accordance with what materials it is necessary to connect,
The company Böllhoff offers a wide range of systems for the installation of self-penetrating rivets RIVSET ®, ranging from hand and finishing with systems for automated production, which can be easily adapted to specific production environments.
RIVSET ® Portable – a portable battery hand tool
