Fasteners are one of the most useful components for any assembly, often being used to secure two or more parts together in a temporary or permanent fashion. The nut is a subtype of fastener, that of which pairs with a correlating screw or bolt to compress items together with ease. Nuts come in many variations depending on the task at hand, ranging from simple, hand-tightened hardware pieces to large and complex components that necessitate special tools for installation. When an assembly is faced with stressors such as vibration, there may be a concern for loosening fasteners. In such instances, special types of nuts should be used, those of which include lock nuts, jam nuts, and bearing lock nuts.

Interconnecting the electrical systems in your aircraft is a crucial part of certification. Aircraft EWIS requirements are mandated by US Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 25 - Subpart H for all transport type planes. To best avoid the risk of part failure, designers must now consider component design limitations, functionality, and susceptibility. One such important element of electrical wiring interconnect systems is shielding, that of which is used to control the electromagnetic interference characteristics of subsystems and equipment. While shielding is a crucial part of many electrical assemblies, some aircraft wiring will require shielding, while other wires will not. This blog will shed light on the several considerations that will help you determine when you should shield aircraft wiring. To begin, let us understand why we need aircraft shielding for wiring in the first place.

Pilots need a vehicle that can withstand the rigors of flight and keep on working. Nuts are the fasteners that hold together different parts of an airplane. Nuts for aviation use come in many different sizes and styles, with the most common being hardened steel or corrosion-resistant metal types. They can also be made from various materials, including stainless steel (which has high durability), tempered titanium aluminum alloys, and more. The aviation industry is filled with many different types of nuts, those of which  can be divided into two categories: Non-self-locking nuts, called standard nuts, and self-locking nuts. In this blog, we will be discussing these two categories and the types of nuts that belong to them.
