A pre-assembled captive fastening system 22 March 2023

KEBA Fastenings has introduced the KEBAFIXX, a pre-assembled captive fastening system that has been specifically designed so that the screw is completely enclosed within the sleeve fitting – helping to prevent tilting of the screw during the assembly process. 

Established in 2002, KEBA Fastenings has developed a reputation for supplying niche fasteners to worldwide distributors and wholesalers. With the new KEBAFIXX the company states it is providing all-around efficiency, thanks to it being a
pre-assembled fastening system – meaning that fewer parts are needed; installation time is improved; and assembly costs are reduced.

“A big challenge for users during assembly are production related hole displacements and deformations, which can make completing an installation difficult,” explains KEBA Fastenings. “The KEBAFIXX is able to compensate for such tolerances by up to 2mm, with compensation of up to 3.5mm possible with oblong shaped sleeves.”

Thanks to its compact design, KEBAFIXX also reduces the clearances required for installation – enabling engineers to design applications that are more compact and cost-effective. “The KEBAFIXX has also been optimised regarding its dimensions, so that it provides high load capacity and a
high-level of assembly reliability,” concludes KEBA Fastenings.
