You may be missing significant advantages if you are using a temporary method in place of a permanent assembly when your parts do not require disassembly.
Why would you want to assemble your application permanently?
Do you make a product that is put together with fasteners?
- Cotter Pins
- Retaining Rings
- Nuts and Bolts
- Studs and Nuts
These 5 points are significant reasons to consider permanent assembly.
Personal Safety: The product is inherently unsafe to repair or replace.
Operational Safety: High liability if the product fails during operation.
Extreme Operating Forces: High shock, vibration, push-pull, and shear.
Regulatory Requirements: Part must be new and not repaired, as required by law or warranty.
Modular Assemblies: A product contains permanently assembled components.
