Click Bond (Carson City, NV, US) will showcase its new LoMas screw. This product reportedly offers significant weight savings for aircraft and other weight-sensitive applications. The new A286-grade stainless steel screw is up to 50% lighter than common steel alternatives and as much as 17% lighter than those made of titanium.

The key to the LoMas screw design is that it’s hollow. This “low-mass” design approach is accomplished through a proprietary deep-drawn manufacture process which provides excellent strength-to-weight ratio. The LoMas screw features a unique captive washer that reduces parts count and minimizes the risk of Foreign Object Debris (FOD). Another element of the LoMas screw is its dual-drive design allowing for both internal NAS 1800 and external hex head capabilities. 

The LoMas screw is initially available in 10-32 thread in 15 lengths from 0.250-2.00 inches with a variety of coatings, with other inch and metric sizes to follow.
