Relay Defence Components
Relay Defence Components is a leading supplier of fastening technology and fixing systems, customised components, bearings and other c-parts to the military sector, drawing from a global network of fastening professionals and industry experts to provide products and solutions across land, sea, air and weapons systems. With a strong focus on the utmost quality and traceability, our products form an integral part of all military hardware and equipment and our services to the sector ensure procurement costs are minimised, by offering a broad range of products and components to suit any application.
Relay Defence Components can supply a complete range of fasteners and fixing components to comply with DIN, EN and ISO standards as well as customized components according to client specification and/or drawing. Furthermore, any protective coating is possible and can be supplied to suit various materials or to address certain environmental conditions encountered in the field.
Materials include but are not limited to high tensile grades such as class 8.8, class 10.9 and class 12.9 as well as stainless steels A2-70 (304 Grade), A4-70 (316 Grade), A4-80 and BUMAX. Exotic materials can also be utilised on request such as Titanium or other alloys.
Demanding environments can exert vibrations and dynamic loads on fasteners and fixings which can lead to loosening or even failure of critical connections. These challenges call for unique solutions and technology that minimize down-time and reduce potential risks. Bolts, nuts and washers can be dismissed as trivial hardware but in-fact are critical components, integral to many different structures and equipment.
Consequently, a connection with a minor flaw can potentially have serious consequences in terms of life, health or the environment or at a minimum, costly down-time.
Relay Defence Components provides solutions to ensure the integrity of all bolted connections so that critical equipment can perform as designed whilst dramatically reducing the risk of failure.
