Goebel Fasteners has created innovative fastener solutions for the truck and trailer industry. They are used in various parts of the manufacturing and repair process. Structural blind rivets and multi-grip lockbolt systems are vital components used in this industry.

There are many uses for blind rivets in trucks — including tractors and their trailers, as well as heavy-duty pickups. This is by necessity: while cars can be quite heavy and difficult to disassemble for a task like riveting, trucks are even more so. For instance, many semi-trucks need large metal panels to hold the truck exterior together. When you need to assemble them and the other side is inaccessible, blind riveting can do the trick, while also providing excellent durability. Furthermore, you can use these rivets for truck and trailer flooring on the interior.

 

GO-LOCK Structural Interlocking Blind Rivet

The GO-Lock structural blind rivets are third party approved and inspected annually to maintain certification. Goebel Fasteners ensures all parts are tested in accordance to ISO 14589 and provides test reports upon request.

The key features of the GO-Lock are its interlocking design, strong vibration resistance, high shear and tensile values, as well as its large grip range for a variety of applications.

 

Blind rivets can do a lot in the assembly process of a truck, but they are not the only parts required. Lockbolts are also vital as vibration-proof fasteners. Threaded inserts can accomplish a variety of manufacturing tasks, from creating threaded holes on thin materials to lending durability and strength for a softer material. All of them serve similar purposes: keeping separate parts together and creating a unified machine.

In continued efforts to improve the industry standard, Goebel Fasteners has developed a patented new multi-grip lockbolt system made completely from T304 Stainless Steel. In applications where an extensive grip range is needed and a consistent flush pin break to the collar is favorable, the Goebel T304 Stainless Steel Lockbolt System is the new and improved standard in the market. Essentially the T304 Stainless Steel Lockbolt System’s extensive grip range and various sizes can replace up to 14 sizes of the classic 6-groove locking fastener system.

Similar to all Goebel engineered fasteners, the T304 Stainless Steel Lockbolt System provides a top level of quality and vibration resistance. The T304 Stainless Steel Lockbolt System installs consistently with reliable and identical installed values.

Advantages of the T304 Stainless Steel Lockbolt System

Multi-Grip Design

The T304 Stainless Steel Lockbolt System extensive grip range and various sizes can replace up to 14 sizes of the classic 6-groove locking fastener system. The unparalleled advantage of using a multi-grip part is that it improves cost efficiency, lowers inventory costs, and increases job site performance by simplifying the installation process.

 

High Corrosion Resistance

The T304 Stainless Steel Lockbolt System pin and collar parts are made of polished T304 stainless steel. These newly developed and patented parts are only available from Goebel and promote a high corrosion resistant solution. Stainless steel is the time proven solution for industrial applications, especially in harsh environments.

 

Vibration Resistance

The T304 Stainless Steel Lockbolt System has been tested and developed to be vibration resistant in all applications. During the installation process the collar is swaged onto the pin and locks in place via the grooves. The locking feature guarantees consistent clamping forces, shearing and tensile values once installed.

 

Flush Breaking Pin

Stainless steel is known as a ductile material and the efforts to guarantee consistent flush breaking was a challenge. To ensure consistency, we developed a patented design that has proven to break flush every time.

 

Efficient Installation Process

Choosing the best tool for your application is simple depending on the frequency of use. All our tools are user intuitive and our parts are easy to identify on the job site. T304 Stainless Steel Lockbolt System lockbolts are installed within seconds.

 

Reduced Inventory of Standard Parts

The T304 Stainless Steel Lockbolt System extensive grip range and various sizes can replace up to 14 sizes of the classic 6-groove locking fastener system. This major advantage reduces the need to stock multiple parts for various sizes. Creating a cost efficient inventory system is vital in today‘s manufacturing setting and these parts will help you achieve that. Our T304 Stainless Steel Lockbolt System parts will save you time, space, and money by simplifying your inventory process.
