Shows a conventional 60° thread form transforming into a Spiralock® thread form.
Load Vector Comparison Animation
Compares the axial-loading properties of a conventional 60° thread form to the radial-loading characteristics of Spiralock®; demonstrates how axial loading increases the probability of shear while radial loading increases the strength of a Spiralock® connection.
Photoelastic Analysis Animation
Illustrates how Spiralock® distributes a load more evenly over a longer male thread surface in comparison to a conventional 60° thread form, providing a superior holding power with a lower torque requirement.
