What Does It Mean To Be AN Certified?

The name "AN" stands for Army/Navy and is an indicator that the nuts are made to very specific standards that stand up to the toughest jobs without faltering or breaking apart. AN fasteners are the industry standard for aircraft use and are made to military specifications. The manufacturing of AN fasteners follow specific design standards that make them perfect for use in the harsh and challenging environments found in military and aerospace applications. Fasteners are a crucial element for many applications for use as impermanent mechanical joints between objects.

As for the history of the AN certification, the AN standard was developed as a means to standardize equipment during World War 2. AN certification mostly fell out of use in the decades since with many of the AN standards being replaced by the more modern Mil-Spec. However, a variety of bolts and other fasteners are still produced to AN standard, such as the commonly used AN565 series set screws.
