Automotive vehicle includes various systems like engine, transmission, exhaust, air intake, cooling and many more systems. No doubt the performance of individual system depends upon their core design. But for performance, the system needs to be fastened properly. In automotive, most of the joints used fasteners which helps in serviceability of the components. There are more than thousands of fasteners used in the vehicle. At various locations, we found issue of bolt loosening and because of this the design intent performance is not met by the system. During product development of ECS (Engine cooling system), various issues reported to loosening the bolt. The pre-mature failure of bolt loosening, increases the interest in young engineers for understanding the behavior of fastener in vehicle running conditions. This paper focuses on the design of wedge shape of washer to avoid bolt loosening.

With air traffic demand constantly increasing and several years of aircraft production in backlog, major Aircraft manufacturers are now shifting focus to improving assembly process efficiency. One of the most promising solutions, known as “One Side Assembly”, aims to perform the whole assembly sequence from one side of the structure (drilling, temporary fastener installation and removal, blind fastener installation, assembly control) and with high level of integrated automation. A one-sided, or blind, fastener that is capable of matching the performance of current two sided structural fasteners while meeting volume and cost objectives can be a major driver for assembly process efficiency improvements. To achieve a blind fastener assembly capable of both fully automated and manual installations while providing robust cycle times and assembly cost reductions is full of challenges.

Abstract Electroimpact, in collaboration with Boeing, has developed an advanced robotic assembly cell, dubbed “The Quadbots.” Using Electroimpact’s patented Accurate Robot technology and multi-function end effector (MFEE), each robot can drill, countersink, inspect hole quality, apply sealant, and insert fasteners into the part. The cell consists of 4 identical machines simultaneously working on a single section of the Boeing 787 fuselage, two on the left, and two on the right. These machines employ “collision avoidance” a new feature in their software to help them work more synchronously. The collision avoidance software uses positional feedback from external safety rated encoders mounted to the motors on the robot. From this feedback, safe spaces, in the form of virtual boundaries can be created. Such that a robot will stop and wait if the adjacent robot is in, or going to move into its programmed work envelope.

Installation of collars and nuts onto interference-fit bolts requires complex anvil hardware on the wet side of the spar or wing panel. Many Electroimpact machines are capable of automatically changing riveting and bolting anvils, but operator involvement is required to connect fastener feed equipment. This is unacceptable in a lights-out cell, but is difficult to eliminate. That’s because the nut and collar anvils must be able to rotate with the machine C axis, which rotates about the Z axis. This means that rotation capability must also be built into the fastener feed system. Newly installed lights-out cell machines are equipped with a “Spinner” assembly which rotates with the machine C axis. The Spinner consists of an individual feed path for each size and type of fastener to be fed rotating inside of a stationary annulus. Air is blown into two points in each Spinner path to convey the fasteners along the inner diameter of the annulus.

J1134_201708
This SAE Recommended Practice establishes a single bolt pattern for the No. 1 clutch housing (see Figure 1) and the No. 2 clutch housing (see Figure 2). These four bolt patterns are designated to give commonality of mounting brackets in existing frame rails. The 420 mm (16.5 in) span, pad face to pad face, allows the ease of installation in existing frame rail widths. This is also the minimum spacing which will accommodate commonly used clutches.

J995_201707
This SAE Standard covers the mechanical and material requirements for three grades of steel nuts suitable for use in automotive and related engineering applications, in sizes 1/4 to 1-1/2 inches, inclusive, and with dimensions conforming with the requirements of the latest issue of SAE J482 or ASME B18.2.2, except for machine screw nuts which are not covered in this standard. This document does not include limits for surface discontinuities. Where usage requires such control, limits may be specified separately. For sizes 1/4 through 1 inch, this may be done by the statement: “Surface discontinuities shall not exceed the limits specified in ASTM F812/F812M.”

AS7474D
This specification covers bolts and screws made from a corrosion and heat resistant, martensitic iron base alloy of the type identified under the Unified Numbering System as UNS S17400. The following specification designations and their properties are covered: AS7474 140 ksi minimum ultimate tensile strength at room temperature 100 ksi stress corrosion test 72 ksi to 7.2 ksi tension-tension fatigue; AS7474-1 140 ksi minimum ultimate tensile strength at room temperature 100 ksi stress corrosion test 88 ksi minimum ultimate shear strength at room temperature.

Primarily for aerospace propulsion system applications where corrosion resistance and high strength in tension is required in temperatures not to exceed 600 °F.
