10 Ways to Secure Bolts from Loosening (7) Spring Washer
As a tool commonly used in fixtures, bolts are widely used, but long-term use will also bring many problems, such as loose connection, insufficient clamping force, and rusted bolts. During the processing and production of parts, the quality and efficiency of processing will be affected due to the loose connection of bolts. So how to prevent the bolt from loosening? Anti-loose purpose: to work more effectively for a long time; to improve the reliability of related workpieces.
The anti-loosening principle of the spring washer is that after the spring washer is flattened, the spring washer will generate a continuous elastic force, so that the threaded connection between the nut and the bolt will continue to maintain a friction force, generate a resistance torque, and prevent the nut from loosening.
At the same time, the sharp corners of the opening of the spring washer are respectively embedded in the surface of the bolt and the connected part, thereby preventing the bolt from rotating relative to the connected part.
