HEICO-LOCK® Wedge Lock Washers
An important feature of HEICO-LOCK® Wedge Lock Washers, setting them apart from other systems that are available, is the securing of the bolt fastening using preload force rather than friction
- Wedge-shaped cams on the inside of the lock washers, radial teeth on the outside
- Interlocking embedding of the radial teeth with the respective mating surface
(when tightening the bolted joint)
- System movement only possible between the inner wedge shaped cams.
Movement across these wedge shaped surfaces effectively self locks the bolt
- Increase in clamping force
