New Locknut Design for Limited Space Applications
ROCKFORD, Ill.—Advanced Machine & Engineering (AME) has introduced the new Spieth Type MSF Locknut, designed for limited space applications.
The new MSF series offers a reduced width, made possible by new design geometry. Because of the reduced width, the precision locknut is especially useful for limited space applications, according to company representatives. The geometry for the mechanism of the locknut is based on Spieth’s diaphragm principle, in which the load and locking parts are constructed from one piece.
The locknuts are produced with common pitches and are available in metric sizes ranging from M25 to M100. The “vise-like” locking feature also allows the locknut to remain locked without additional components, such as pins and keys to hold it in place. During the locking procedure, the thread flanks are loaded in the direction of the load, providing a connection with high axial rigidity.
Advanced Machine & Engineering Co. serves the machine tool industry with precision components and accessories, including spindle interface components and workholding devices. Machine enclosures, as well as chip removal and filtration systems, are also produced through its sister company, Hennig Inc.
