the working principle of the nut is to use the friction between the nut and the bolt for self-locking. However, the reliability of this self-locking is reduced under dynamic loads. In some important occasions, we will take some anti-loosening measures to ensure the reliability of the nut locking. Among them, the use of lock nuts is one of the anti-loosening measures.

The first is to use two identical nuts to screw on the same bolt, and add a tightening torque between the two nuts to make the bolt connection reliable.

The second is a special anti-loosening nut, which needs to be used together with a kind of anti-loosening washer. The special anti-loosening nut is not a hexagonal nut, but a medium round nut. There are 3, 4, 6 or 8 notches on the circumference of the nut (depending on the size of the nut and the product series of the manufacturer). Several notches are both the focal point of the tightening tool and the snap-in of the lock washer bayonet.

The third type is to drill through threaded holes from the outer surface of the nut to the inner thread surface (usually 2, which are distributed at 90 on the outer surface), which are used to screw in small-diameter countersunk head screws. The purpose is to give the thread Apply a centripetal force to prevent the locknut from loosening. The better quality lock nut sold on the market is inlaid with a small copper block that is consistent with the thread of the lock nut on the inner surface of the nut to prevent the radial jacking screw from directly contacting the locked thread and damaging the latter. . This kind of lock nut is gradually applied in the shaft end locking of rotating motion parts, such as the anti-looseness of the bearing at the mounting end of the ball screw.
