AME Announces Improved Spieth MSF Locknuts

Advanced Machine & Engineering Co. (AME), a manufacturer and distributor of Spieth locknuts, announces a change to the locking screws used on the Type MSF locknuts.

The previous allen screws no longer are available with the MSF reduced-profile precision locknuts. The clamping screws are sold only with a hexalobular socket head, which is similar to a TORX system screw. The new screws are designed to improve the handling, mounting and service life of the tools used for tightening the screws.

The MSF reduced-profile locknuts are used in applications where space is limited. The locknuts use the Spieth locking principle that provides vise-like locking of the locknut. This locking principle has proven itself over the 50 years that it has been available.
