Containing the uncontrolled multiplication of fasteners

Improve design productivity with customizable fastener libraries and automated validation

Installing fasteners such as screws, bolts, nuts, washers and pins can be very labor-intensive. Users must ensure that mating parts have their holes perfectly aligned, of the correct diameter, and assembled with the correct parts. PTC Creo Parametric automates this process and provides access to extensive catalogs (ANSI, DIN and JIS). This reduces the time required to place and assemble fasteners by up to 90%.

The PTC Creo Intelligent Fastener Extension (IFX) builds on this functionality. With a fully customizable library, the ability to assemble fasteners without generating assembly references, additional placement options, and design validation tools, PTC Creo IFX increases user productivity, eliminates errors, and reduces part duplication.
