Types of Fasteners for Agriculture
Fasteners play a pivotal role in the agricultural industry, from the manufacture of feeding pails to the construction of silos. Various types of fasteners include:
- Shackle bolts

Unique Demands of the Agricultural Industry
Machined components and fasteners designed for agriculture applications are typically manufactured from materials that resist corrosion, oppose contamination, and withstand harsh circumstances.
Using components or fasteners from unknown or undependable sources can be risky. The flow of fluids and gases in equipment like tractors, balers, mowers, and conveyance systems is typically under compression, and any pressure loss may degrade performance, jeopardize worker safety, infrastructure, and the surrounding environment. Cleanliness is also critical, as germs or contaminants can generate costly recalls and negative customer feedback.
Applications of Fasteners & Components
Agricultural equipment is built using a myriad of components, including pumps, cylinders, valves, hoses, fittings, gauges, sensors, filters, seal, and reservoirs.
