The POWER lock nut™
• The only lock nut on the market that has built in torque & tension limiting without measuring!
• Ensures reliability and maintains reputation for the life of a project or product.
• Usable in high vibration environments and in critical bolted joints where loosening is not an option.
Using the Power Lock Nut™ very simply and reliably prevents over tightening while providing truly vibration proof locking.
The patented technology that makes this possible combines the locking benefits and maintained tension provided by a specially designed spring washer working in unison with a nut that locks from the radial pressure the washer provides on compression.
This ground breaking Power Lock Nut™ design uses 2 parts;
1. The specially engineered (RCSW™) Radially Compressing Spring Washer™ which on compression creates very powerful radial force inwards on the cone of the second part (the nut) while also creating tension/clamp load / preload that is maintained even in severe vibration.
2. A specialized lock nut design that works with the RCSW™ in unison.
The working principle:
On compression of the RCSW™ during tightening the nuts 'cone' and the vertical cuts of the nut are compressed inwards creating dramatic stopping force on the bolt.The clamp load is carefully designed to be limited to a specific range that cannot be exceeded. Once locking begins, the bolted connection will remain securely fastened even in high vibration environments while the clamp load will remain limited even if additional torque is applied.
