Working Principles of Hilti Mechanical Fasteners
Hilti mechanical fasteners were shown to outperform with respect to cyclic inelastic behavior under cyclic loading. The videos below comparing mechanical fasteners to welds were taken from the Hilti Fastening Systems Research Laboratory (FSRL), which allows for full-element testing and extensive R&D.
Consistency, Reliability & Productivity
The unique, top hat design of Hilti fasteners helps clamp the deck and allows for a wide range of penetration while achieving a proper fastening. This increases the quality of fastening from pin to pin.
The easy-to-use tool that drives the mechanical fastener has an adjustable power regulator . The piston technology pushes the fastener into the base steel and helps prevent the pin from being over driven.
