What are QSLM Approved Fasteners?

Aerospace Manufacturing is proud to manufacture QSLM approved fasteners that are trusted by some of the largest aerospace/defense agencies and organizations in the world, including Bombardier, DLA, Sikorsky, and Lockheed Martin.

What are QSLM approved fasteners?

QSLM approved fasteners are fasteners manufactured by an organization on the Defense Logistics Agency’s Qualified Suppliers List for Manufacturers (QSLM).

The U.S. military uses some of the most technologically advanced, expensive, and important machines known to man, and many of these are aircraft. To ensure that the millions of parts used in these aircraft are of the utmost quality and are manufactured consistently, manufacturers must be pre-qualified by the Defense Logistics Agency Qualified Suppliers List for Manufacturers (QSLM).

To be on the Qualified Suppliers List for Manufacturers, applicants must meet certain conditions and comply with all established QSL criteria. The requirements vary depending on the commodity being manufactured. As a manufacturer of high strength, close tolerance aerospace fasteners, AMI must work in accord with both QSL criteria and all applicable Fastener Quality Act regulations.  

For more information, check out the DLA’s Qualified Suppliers List for Manufacturers.
