Authorised Distributor of NORD-LOCK Washers in INDIA.
The NORD-LOCK bolt securing system uses geometry to safely lock bolted joints in the most critical applications.
This unique wedge-locking system offers the following advantages:
- Maximum safety
- Resists loosening caused by vibration and dynamic loads
- Ease of assembly and disassembly
- Locking function is not affected by lubrication
Positive locking at low and high preload levels
- Controllable preload
- Same temperature characteristics as standard bolt/nut
Tension makes the bolt self-locking
The key is the difference in angles. Since the cam angle α is larger than the thread pitch β, the pair of washers expand more than the corresponding pitch of the thread. NORD-LOCK washers positively lock the fastener in a joint which is subjected to extreme vibration or dynamic loads.
NORD-LOCK is a pair of washers with a wedge-locking action meeting DIN 25201 which is a unique method using tension instead of friction. The rise of the cams between the NORD-LOCK washers is greater than the pitch of the bolt. In addition, there are radial teeth on the opposite side. The washers are installed in pairs, cam face to cam face.
When the bolt and/or nut is tightened the teeth grip and seat the mating surfaces. The NORD-LOCK washer is locked in place, allowing movement only across the face of the cams. Any attempt from the bolt/nut to rotate loose is blocked by the wedge effect of the cams.
Here you see what happens when a bolt is untightened with a wrench. The pair of washers expand more than the corresponding pitch of the thread allows the bolt/nut to rise.
NORD-LOCK washers positively lock the fastener in a joint which is subjected to any kind of vibration or dynamic loads.
