NEW TENSION NUT ELIMINATES NEED FOR SPECIALIST TOOLING


Heico Fasteners, manufacturers of the Heico-lock anti-vibration wedge lock washers, launched their new Heico-tec tension nut at the Engineering Design Show (EDS) that promises to eliminate the need for specialist tooling for large bolted joints.


UNIQUE PRODUCT


The Heico-tec tension nut is unique in the fact that the pre-tension force of the large main thread is distributed to many smaller pressure bolts. Because these pressure bolts are smaller a conventional torque wrench is all that is needed to achieve the correct pretension force, eliminating the need for complex, bulky or heavy tools and makes securing large bolted joints more convenient and easy.


AVOIDING TIME CONSUMING AND POTENTIALLY EXPENSIVE OPTIONS


Working with large bolted joints usually means an engineer having to arrange specialist electric, hydraulic or pneumatic bolt tensioning services. Heico-tec does away with these time consuming and potentially expensive options and indeed is so fast that Heico-tec nuts are often tightened in the same time it takes to set up such tooling.


In short ensuring that bolted joints are secure and safe is of the utmost importance and the company’s new product ensures joint integrity for use with larger bolts without the need for specialist tools, bringing technical and cost benefits.
