What is a fastener?
It’s usually a pin or a nut which forms a bolt used to link several components together such as stringers, flanges, skins, ribs, shrouds, stiffeners… to form the structure of an aircraft or an engine.
It is made out of very specific raw materials such as titanium, stainless steel, super alloys or aluminum, and has to meet demanding various specifications: geometry, fatigue, tensile, stress, corrosion, weight, conductivity, temperature and various other specifications.
LISI AEROSPACE has gradually become number three worldwide on the fasteners' market, merging together with well-known companies and acquiring market shares thanks to its new products and competitiveness. Our fasteners go into the airframe, the engine and the interior – most of them are embedded for the entire life of the aircraft.
In addition, LISI AEROSPACE is very active on the racing market where it holds a unique position supplying rod bolts, head bolts and fasteners for Formula 1 and NASCAR car chassis.
