You should be free to create the best solution to any design challenge, confident in the knowledge that fastening won’t be a problem. When you’re working with new composite materials, when every detail needs to look as good as it performs, when you’re pushing the limits of what’s possible – you can trust bigHead.
We can work with you to…
- create the best way to fasten lightweight composite designs
- do away with drilling, riveting and welding
- devise simple, efficient manufacturing processes
- cut waste without sacrificing performance
- embed bigHead fasteners in composite parts, with extreme precision
- explore and test new ways to use composite materials
- understand how composites perform under stress
- prototype new ideas
Designed to improve access hatch safety and accessibility, the nacelle fastener is made from 316 stainless steel to ensure offshore corrosion protection. It is also over-moulded for lightning strike protection and can be colour-matched, providing total discretion.
Wheel Arch Trim Fastener
Our exterior wheel trim application for trucks was designed so that the bigHead can be fully embedded in the tier supplier’s moulded part. The embedded bigHead provides secure fixing in precise locations for efficient final assembly.
These bigHeads were fully encapsulated in polyurethane to our customer’s specification. The encapsulated bigHeads are ultrasonically welded into position during final assembly and are designed to enable secure, reliable fastening with a low profile.
The big ring was designed to give our customer multiple fixing points consistently and reliably, with just one bigHead – saving time and ensuring accurate final assembly.
3 Tang Quilt Pin
This was designed to retain insulation blankets in a specific customer application. Our customer needed a head with “tangs” that can be bent into position after installation.
Hybrid (F2 + M1)
This fastener has been designed to give a female fixing on one side and a male fixing on the other. It provides a complete, one-piece solution for integration in a composite structure.
