Did you know that vibration mounts, bolts, clamps, and rivets all go into the production of today’s automobiles and aircraft? Vehicle production leaves little room for error. Operations must be precise, and parts must be firmly and securely held together. What are some of the most common tools that make modern vehicle production possible?

Rubber Grommets and Cable Ties

Automobiles, airplanes, and other modern vehicles require proper insulation. Rubber grommets, simple oblong or circular fixtures, redirect cords, cables, and other electrical wiring away from jagged metal pieces as well as sharp corners and edges. Rubber grommet sizes vary a great deal, and manufacturers can purchase large or small grommets to best meet their needs. Heavy duty grommets withstand high temperatures, making them ideal for automotive manufacturing applications. Some are also able to retain or bounce back to their original form when exposed to extreme amounts of pressure.

Cable ties secure groups of wiring into place to prevent damage, including fraying, abrasion, and wear. Airline mechanics were among some of the first people to use cable ties commercially. Aircraft maintenance workers continue to use the relatively inexpensive ties to secure wiring today. The ties are also used for thousands of different applications, including industrial and manufacturing applications. Workers can use convenient cable tie guns to quickly and efficiently place, cut, and fasten electrical wiring.

Plastic Screws

Keeping today’s vehicles working at their best, however, does not depend on wire management alone. Plastic screws, nuts, and bolts are incredibly strong and hearty, with the added benefit of enabling workers to easily remove, adjust, and refasten parts. Regular automotive and aircraft inspections and maintenance typically require workers to do just that. Moreover, most plastic fasteners do not require another tool, such as a power drill or a punch hole, for routine installation and repair.

Today’s vehicle production, and our ability to drive to and from work and take a plane to visit family across the country, depends on simple protective tools and products. Rubber grommets, cable ties, and plastic screws all keep wiring and parts intact and secure to keep cars on the roads and planes in the sky. Read more here: www.alliance-express.com
