Emuge Corp. (West Boylston, MA) has announced its thread making tool quality is available in a SELF-LOCK integrated locking system.
Emuge SELF-LOCK threading tools offer a high quality alternative in thread locking for vital safety applications in aerospace, medical, communications, transportation industries and more. The Emuge thread locking feature is integrated in the internal thread and has a modified profile with a 30 degree ramp surface in the direction of stress, which provides the self-locking effect. In an ideal screw connection for high-stress situations, the internal thread yields a self-locking screw connection that can be used repeatedly.
Compared with standard threads, the Emuge SELF-LOCK internal thread shows constant, maximum holding power under dynamic stress. Functions remain in good operation even with repeated loosening and re-tightening of the thread connection. SELF-LOCK technology results in increased threading tool life for larger thread hole diameters and provides larger tolerances for thread hole diameters.
