ATI's Fundamentals Of Sealing and Fastening course
This three-day course is an overview of the entire fastener and sealing industries, focusing on industrial fastener and sealing applications emphasizing self-sealing fastener design and application. We will explore in depth how to effectively seal a product, types of seals and how to choose the proper seal for a specific application. Additional focuses will be on (1.) The advantages and disadvantages of the current Military Standards MS3212 & MS3213, (2.) the elements that make a successful self-sealing fastener, and specifically (3.) the future of sealing as it relates to product design and application.
Larry J. Bogatz
He has designed thousands of different fastener products, and he is the only holder of multiple current patents for specialty self-sealing fasteners. His designs have been used in the Mars Rovers, the Alvin & Jason submersibles, Medtronic’s insulin injectors, various NASA projects, and numerous other military and commercial applications.
He has more than 20 years experience in the fastener industry. As professional mechanical engineer and a veteran of the Navy Seabees, he has extensive hands-on, real world experience. In addition, he has authored a book, numerous articles, and has appeared on ABC television and numerous talk shows.
