When it comes to fasteners, lockbolts are very popularity. Lockbolts play an important role as fasteners in many industries, including building and construction, manufacturing, mining, and transportation. Lockbolts are fasteners that are designed to create a lasting joint that that can resist loosening, even after prolonged exposure to vibration. Using lockbolts has several advantages:
LONGER FATIGUE LIFE
The fatigue life of lockbolt fasteners is much longer. The shear strength of the lockbolt may be determined by considering both the diameter of the lockbolt and the strength of the material.
THEY ARE APPLICABLE IN ANY APPLICATION
Lockbolts are available in a wide variety of materials, lengths, diameters, and head styles, which means that they may be used in almost any application.
In comparison to the more conventional screw or rivet, the lockbolt design creates a far more robust and long-lasting bond. While installing a lockbolt, the pin must be pulled to reduce the diameter of the collar and stretch the pin to provide additional force over the joint.
Lockbolts are simpler and quicker to install than traditional nuts and bolts. There is less time and money spent on the installation process. Installing a lockbolt is a failsafe option that can be checked quickly and easily.
