Keeping Joints Tight
Locking devices are important factors ensuring joints stay tight are often misused and overlooked. This seminar addresses the best ways to ensure threaded fasteners stay tight, dispelling myths about many locking devices and practices. Topics include; the different considerations for “hard” or “soft” joints and locking options with an emphasis on consistency in joint preparation.
Principles of Fastener Design and Application
There are many “rules of thumb” used in the fastener industry which remain unpublished or generally unavailable. This course provides attendees with an understanding of topics including; recommended tightening torque, the length of thread engagement, thread forming and cutting screw considerations including hole size, drive to fail ratios among others. This is a useful course for anyone involved in fastener and joint design.
This training program provides definitions of torque and tension, the relationship between these two forces as they relate to fastening, “hands-on” creation of torque-tension curves and practical approaches to developing proper installation torque. Understanding these variables will ensure product quality and reduce costs. The content of this seminar can be adjusted to meet specific needs of audiences ranging from shop floor assembly personnel to mechanical engineers.
Thread Forming and Thread Cutting Fasteners
This course is a practical approach to understanding the use of thread forming screws – including selection of hole size, thread type, recommended seating torque and other considerations. Training will include “hands-on” development of drive-to-fail ratios, recommended seating torque, safety margins and other pertinent information which should be developed prior to using any type of thread forming or cutting screws to promote safe and efficient operations.
