MECHANICAL FASTENERS

Depending on their purposes, fasteners are divided into the following:

> Anti-setting lock (loosening)

> Anti-rotation lock

> Retainer

In most cases, the numerous types of fasteners do not represent a single lock for all of the above-mentioned fastening tasks. Therefore, knowledge of the possible causes of failure is very important when using fasteners.

MODE OF ACTION OF FASTENERS

The effect of a fastener can be tested on a vibration test bench (Junker Test).
