The Harper panel fastening system was developed in response to some of the challenges of existing sandwich panel assembly methods.
This family of unique inserts brings the efficiency of the furniture-in-a-box industry to aerospace, where sandwich panel assemblies require no fixturing or adhesives at the assembly level. This supports pre-finishing of panel sub-assemblies, and flat-pack shipping capability.
The Harper panel fastening system decreases rework costs associated with separating bonded panel assemblies.
Inserts can be custom made to fit any panel thickness, curvature, and mating angle for limitless panel joint configurations.
Reduced panel assembly labor
Fixture-less precision assembly
