DISC-LOCK Launches New EZ Self-Locking Anti Vibration Washer
Press release date: July 24, 2007
DISC-LOCK launched the new range of EZ Self Locking anti vibration washers that are an improvement on their standard self-locking washers. The standard DISC-LOCK self locking washers come in pairs, where the two separate washers have interlocking cams and have to be assembled manually. This patented technology has proved to be very effective in a wide range of high stress, corrosive, or high vibration environments. The new improved EZ Self Locking anti vibration washers come in pre assembled pairs held together by a special hot melt glue from Universal Systems Limited based in the UK.
These new "glued pairs" facilitate the handling and installation of these self-locking washers. In addition these carbon steel washers are RoHS & WEE compliant, heat treated and then zinc plated for maximum safety and effectiveness. The DISC-LOCK self-locking anti vibration washers are available in sizes 5mm - 16mm ( 3/16" - 5/8" ) in stainless steel and in sizes 3mm - 38mm ( #6 - 1-1/2" ) in carbon steel.
The marketplace is becoming increasingly safety conscious and requires these kind of self-locking washer solutions in vibration sensitive environments. The onus is on transportation companies to adopt this new and affordable technology. The cost of these self-locking washers is miniscule compared to cost of life and property when the anti vibration washers are not installed and connections fail with serious consequences.
