Temporary Locating Patch
NYLOK FASTENER CORP.
This company has developed NYSTAY temporary locating patch to hold fasteners in place during transport and automated-assembly production lines. The patch can be applied to both threaded and unthreaded fasteners. The polymer is pre-applied 360deg. around the fastener and allows manufacturers to pre-install certain components. The process replaces old methods of using plastic washers to hold solid rivets and provides a dramatic increase in productivity while reducing assembly labor costs. Circle No. 141
