Locking system keeps critical joints intact: News from Stage 8, 15 Dec 2005 [cached]
For fail-safe joint integrity in critical applications, US industry is adopting an innovative fastener locking system that can stop joint failure and production downtime by preventing thread loosening from starting, even in counterbored hole applications. 'Like David slew Goliath, a single weakness can take down even the biggest, most capable, production machinery', says Joe Finan, Vice President of the Advanced Technology Group for Sequa Can Machinery, a leading maker of can manufacturing equipment, based in East Rutherford, New Jersey. 'The fatal flaw in too many production lines is failing to protect the critical joints with suitable fasteners.
Companies will spend a ton of money bulletproofing major components, yet neglect the fasteners.
It's insane when you think about it because the fasteners hold the components together'.
'Shock, pressure, vibration, temperature change - all combine to loosen fastener threads, which inevitably come loose at the worst possible time, when you can least afford it', continues Finan.
'If you can loosen a fastener at a critical joint, don't use it', says Finan.
'Because if you can loosen the fastener, the physics of your application will - it's Murphy's Law'.
'Typical fasteners just aren't robust and don't handle unanticipated events well', explains Finan.
'If you see the clip and retainer locked in place, you know the fasteners retain their full pre-load', says Finan.
'With Six Sigma and other quality measures prevalent today, our engineers need to focus on big issues like defect analysis or designed failure modes', says Finan, 'not whether commercial bolts will come loose'.
'Right up front, we show prospects and customers our attention to detail and quality', says Finan.
