Fastener security refers to measures taken to inhibit the unintentional loosening or removal of fasteners by external influences.
An overview of different mechanical security measures is given below.
POWERLOK enables spontaneous loosening to be efficiently resisted. The special thread form offers the following advantages:
In addition to the standard 60° thread, further small flanges are rolled into the thread form, extending beyond the nominal thread diameter
The trilobular cross section of the thread forming TAPTITE 2000 screw does not only lower the insertion torque, but it also helps achieving a high security against loosening in combination with no play and close flank mating.
Particular advantages offered are:
TAPTITE 2000 + spedcaps
The combination of a TAPTITE 2000 screw and the micro-encapsulated adhesive spedcaps further enhances the resistance to spontaneous release, whilst all advantages of the thread forming remain.
Thanks to years of experience in development and extensive production know how, we are in a position to offer mechanical fixing solutions exactly matched to customer requirements.
A special under head face geometry enables the loosening torque to be significantly raised, depending on the contacting material.
