The right stainless steel fasteners for you

Are you active in machine building for the food industry? Then there is a good chance that you have standard stainless steel plates, profiles and fasteners in stock. Without enough fasteners - there is no machine. What makes so many companies rely on stainless steel to build their machines? 

  • The strength of the material
  • The corrosion resistance
  • The ease of cleaning
  • Hygienic and food safe
  • Durability and low maintenance

Lubrinox: Pre-lubricated bolts, screws and nuts

A good example of newly designed fasteners by Fabory are the Lubrinox bolts, nuts and screws. When using stainless steel fasteners, it often happens that the inner and outer threads weld together and the fastening cannot be loosened. You can counteract this with a paste, but that takes extra time and workpieces and hands must be cleaned after use. Here at Fabory, we have developed Lubrinox, especially for the food industry, for long-lasting lubrication in the connection. We have listed the biggest advantages for you.


  • Prevents galling of stainless steel bolt connections
  • Is approved for use in the food industry
  • Has already been applied at Fabory before use, that saves on average of 25 seconds per connection
  • Also available in nuts
  • Articles retain their stainless steel appearance
  • The bolts, nuts and screws work great in combination with Loctite
  • Dirty hands from manual lubrication are a thing of the past

Manufacturer of coolers and dryers

The design and production company Geelen Counterflow from Haelen is one of the companies allowed to take the lead in testing Lubrinox. The fasteners provided with lubrication disappear in coolers and dryers for the food industry. Several copies of these coolers and dryers are sent out at Geelen Counterflow weekly. They leave for places all over the world.

Due to the intensive use of stainless steel fasteners, the company was looking for a cost-effective alternative to lubrication on bolts. René Derckx, the technical purchaser at Geelen Counterflow: "We were curious whether the solution devised by Fabory would also meet our wishes. The main premise was that threads do not get stuck. You don't want to have to cut or drill out a screw."

Another coating that employees use in the workplace is a lot thicker. Fabory's Lubrinox fasteners do not need such a thick layer. "A thick layer makes it more difficult to drive screws by hand. They get very greasy. If you need to use force, slide your fingers over the hex. You do not have that with Lubrinox. The reactions on the shop floor are positive during this test".

Captive screws & bolts

Captive screws and bolts

Nobody wants to find a screw or bolt at the end of the chain in the food. At the same time, fixing fasteners in panels and doors that open and close regularly is a challenge. The Fabory range includes captive screws and bolts fitted with a space-saving clip. This space-saving locking clip eliminates the need to leave space for a locknut behind the panel. The screws have a reduced shank, so you no longer have to tap threads into the holes in the panel. We worked out this innovative solution together with a customer who came up with this idea. Does your application also require a specific extension of the range? We would be happy to work with you. Contact us.

Hygienic bolts and nuts

As a food producer, you want to periodically clean and disinfect machines. In washdown machines, you need fasteners with specific design features such as smooth surfaces and minimal voids. The Fabory Premium Stainless Hygienic fasteners from Fabory have a smooth and polished surface and rubber sealing rings.
