Emuge Corp.’s Self-Lock integrated locking system offer an alternative in thread locking for safety applications in aerospace, medical, communications and transportation industries. The thread locking feature is integrated in the internal thread, and has a modified profile with a 30-degree ramp surface in the direction of stress which provides the self-locking effect.  

The threading tool’s internal thread is said to show constant, maximum holding power under dynamic stress. Functions remain in good operation even with repeated loosening and re-tightening of the thread connection. This locking effect is caused by the ramp-shaped surface integrated into the thread profile.
