HUCK TECHNOLOGY


HUCK TECHNOLOGY

The original Huck lockbolt was developed as an alternative to the conventional bolt and nut combinations, which exhibited some severe weaknesses. These included loss of preload under service load; setting and relaxation effects in thread; self-loosening effects under vibration load; and relative movement in the thread bearing area.

The traditional Huck lockbolt was able to combat these problems and consistently provide a secure locking system. For instance, the lockbolt has a special locking groove design that provides vibration resistance and extreme fatigue life. This is due to a larger cross-sectional area and no stress concentration. When compared, a 3/4 "lockbolt has 18% more bolt cross sectional area than a 3/4" standard bolt. Lockbolts also have a larger core diameter than regular bolts. Using a nut and screw there is only 30% – 35% contact and the applications is vibration sensitive.

For more than 60 years, Huck has been bringing new and innovative joining solutions to the marketplace.

No matter what the challenge – assembly line productivity challenges, manufacturing floor safety issues, weight-related equipment performance, tough, vibration intensive applications, or harsh environments where corrosion can erode joint integrity – Huck has the solution.

Huck vs. Time

These engineered fasteners are installed using a unique direct-tension/swaged-on method, providing for a smooth, jolt-free, quick and easy installation. In fact, you can install a HuckBolt in 2 seconds or less, saving valuable assembly time while optimizing productivity. Huck helps you save time because checking your work is quick and easy. HuckBolts were designed with a special symbol on the collar, so a quick visual inspection is all it takes to know if it has been installed properly.

Huck vs. Weight

Huck vs. Weight

HuckBolts can contribute to light weighting of equipment in following ways.

Huck fasteners offer higher clamp and tensile strength than conventional fasteners, fewer or smaller diameter Huck fasteners can be used. This helps to reduce equipment weight, without loss of performance and fewer inventories are required.

HuckBolts allows for the use of lighter weight aluminum instead of steel in the joining process, the strong clamp performance of HuckBolt fasteners provides the joining power to attach aluminum elements without welding. In addition, Huck fasteners are also less costly on a per-piece basis. And because fewer fasteners are used, the overall cost of assembly is less.

Light weighting vehicle assemblies is beneficial for trucks, helping shed pounds for increased payload and fuel efficiency Increase strength, and save weight with Huck fasteners.

Huck vs. Torque

Huck vs. Torque

HuckBolts, applied with direct tension, are the only way to guarantee you’ll get consistent clamp. Time after time. Huck performed a series of tests on a variety of conventional nuts and bolts and found that even when torque is consistent, clamp isn’t. Friction, in the form of dust, heat, and other elements you don’t see, get in the way, resulting in inconsistent clamp.

So, for consistent clamp, a more secure joint, HuckBolts with direct tension installation are the answer.

Huck vs. Vibration

Huck vs. Vibration

Huck fasteners maintain their structural integrity for the life of the joint. Unlike conventional nuts and bolts, HuckBolts are installed using direct tension and swaging. This installation method helps ensure there are no gaps between nut and bolt threads – a common potential source of loosening. HuckBolts feature full metal-to-metal contact between the swaged-on collar and the pin. HuckBolts have a much larger cross-sectional area and larger root radius, resulting in a much stronger and more secure joint. In fact, HuckBolts have up to 30% more bolt cross-sectional area.

Huck vs. Welding

Huck vs. Welding

While welding is proven to be one of the surest processes for securing a joint, there are a number of issues relating to it. To begin, the welding process is very time consuming, particularly in situations where in-depth inspection procedures are required. Welding also requires skilled, often highly paid, technicians. The heat generated by welding can often reduce the strength of the metals being joined, and damage critical surface coatings.

Today there are alternatives to welding, one of the foremost being direct-tension installed, swaged lockbolts, such as the HuckBolts. Fastening with vibration-resistant HuckBolts instead of welding offers:

Safety, simplicity, speed, cost savings and structural integrity.

Huck vs. Corrosion

Huck vs. Corrosion

HuckBolts are manufactured to deliver a consistently high level of corrosion resistance, the development of the revolutionary HuckGuard coating offers the best level of corrosion resistance you can find in an engineered fastener. In fact, fasteners treated with HuckGuard can sustain up to 500 hours of salt spray testing, while collars treated with zinc only can sustain only 100 hours of salt spray testing.
