A fastener is a device that is used to hold two or more parts together. Fasteners come in a wide variety of types and sizes and are used to secure everything from small electronic components to large structural components on aircraft and spacecraft.

Some common types of fasteners used in the aerospace industry include:

  1. Bolts: Bolts are cylindrical rods that are inserted through holes in two or more parts and secured in place with a nut.

  2. Screws: Screws are similar to bolts, but they have threads that allow them to be tightened and secured by turning them with a screwdriver or other tool.

  3. Rivets: Rivets are fasteners that consist of a cylindrical head and a shank that is inserted through holes in two or more parts and then expanded or "flared" to hold the parts together.

  4. Adhesives: Adhesives, such as epoxy or other types of glue, can also be used to hold parts together in some cases.

Fasteners are an important part of the aerospace industry, as they are used to secure a wide range of components on aircraft and spacecraft. Fasteners must be strong and reliable, as they are responsible for holding critical structures together and ensuring the overall integrity of the aircraft or spacecraft. In addition, fasteners must be able to withstand the extreme conditions that are often encountered in the aerospace industry, such as high temperatures, vibration, and fatigue.
