Split Ring Lock Washer vs Pre-Applied Threadlocker
UTILIZING A PRE-APPLIED PATCH SOLUTION OVER SPLIT RING WASHERS
- Up to 50% MORE Clamp Load Retention After Vibration Cycling
- Over 40% REDUCTION in Fastening Manufacturing Time
- Over 10% REDUCTION in Assembly Costs
- REDUCE Part Numbers, Weight, and Complexity, While Improving Quality
Split ring washers have been viewed as a solution to prevent loss of clamp load in high vibration environments, but testing has proven them ineffective. Junkers vibration data shows that using a reactive or inert thread locker results in a superior solution, benefiting overall performance and reducing the total assembled cost of the joint.
