When you are installing any types of bolts and nuts, one of the issues that always tend to arise is how to do this fast. When you are doing this on a commercial scale, the tendency is to try and do it as fast as possible since time is normally of the essence in such cases. In order to achieve this, there are many people who consider using high RPM bolt installation techniques to ensure that they don’t spend too much time on individual fasteners. If you have automated the process, such as through the use of robots, you could also program them to install the fasteners at a faster rate than usual.

The problem with high RPM installation

However, you need to keep in mind that there are a few inherent issues associated with installation of aluminum  socket hex head cap screws and Hastelloy hex head cap screws in this manner. When you install any fasteners at a high RPM, you stand the risk of having them exposed to too much torque. As a result, you will definitely end up installing them much faster, but will also have to deal with the issue of reduced structural integrity of the fasteners. This is especially so of screws and nuts that are designed using materials that might not stand up to such forces too much.

When you want to install the fasteners quickly

This means that if you are interested in installing the fasteners quickly, you need to be technical about it. One of the issues you need to address is the stress that the fasteners can each take. In order to do this, you will need to go through the technical specifications of each fastener, so that you can then figure out the maximum speed at which you can have them put in place.
The other alternative is to consult. For instance, you can go online and find information from other sources such as people who run businesses that are similar to yours. If they are experienced, they will be in a very good position to offer you information that will turn out to be well worth it.

 

Technical strategies you can adopt

To ensure that high RPMs don’t cause too much damage to your fasteners, you also need to consider the nature of the installation process. In some cases, for instance, you will find that simply lubricating the fasteners will allow you to have them installed at a much faster rate than usual. You may also need to use high quality installation equipment. If you are using an electric drill, for instance, a high quality one will allow you to use higher RPMs with precision, resulting in less damage to the fasteners and the substance you are fastening.
Lastly, you should also consider working with professionals during the installation. If you are doing home renovation, for instance, working with contractors will help. The fact that they have been providing this service for long will result in a higher chance of faster installation with reduced risk of fastener damage.
