Fatigue Technology


Fatigue Technology (FTI) officially entered the commercial aerospace industry in 1969 when it helped pioneer the cold expansion process with the Boeing Company. Since then, FTI has engineered cold expansion based applications in support of major OEMs and MROs across the globe including Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Bell, and Sikorsky. The FTI split sleeve cold expansion process specification is generally accepted as the industry standard. Cold Expansion is used on almost every commercial and military aircraft in the world due to the proven solution of crack growth and the long term benefits to both the structures fatigue life and the cost savings in installation and maintenance. The Cold Expansion method is also used to install rivetless nut plates, blind fasteners, bushings, liners, and fittings in both metal and composite applications.
