Spiralock Self Locking Threaded Fastening Solution

12,205 views

Published on

Spiralock Corporation has re-engineered the standard (female) internal thread form and added a 30° wedge ramp at the root of the thread. Through this unique design, Spiralock® thread form is exceptionally resistant to thread loosening and stripping, caused by transverse vibration. Eliminating the need for secondary locking devices, Spiralock provides reliable fastening solutions for applications in a wide range of industries, including aerospace, military, automotive, truck, diesel and IC engines, medical, oil/gas and power generation, farm and construction and others.

  3. 3. Spiralock Technology What is Spiralock? A self-locking female thread form with a 30 o wedge ramp at the root of the thread The wedge ramp allows the bolt to spin freely until clamp load is applied. At that point, the crests of the standard male thread are drawn tightly against the wedge ramp, creating a continuous spiral line of contact along the entire length of the thread engagement.
