SELF-LOOSENING AND LOCKING

Choosing the right fastening technique is extremely important, not just to produce an acceptable end product, but also to save on mounting and maintenance costs. In addition, we must also be able to pledge optimum safety. Every day, Fabory’s engineers and technical specialists offer advice on optimizing threaded joints in theory and in practice, and both directly with the customer and regularly through seminars.
 
In this section on self-loosening and locking, we explain our practical expertise on what can be done to prevent threaded joints from loosening.
