Flanged nut, referred to as hexagonal nut with flange, is another member of the nut family, a form of nut. The hexagonal nut with flange can also be called the hexagonal nut with disc, which refers to the hexagonal nut plus a large disc.
Generally speaking, this large disc is toothed, so why do we need a flange? Why are there teeth on the flange? Let me briefly say:
1. The flange is used to increase the force-bearing area of the nut and the receiving surface. We all know that in the case of constant pressure, the larger the force area, the smaller the pressure on the force surface, and the greater the stress on the nut in the vertical and horizontal directions. This prevents excessive pressure on the flange nut contact surface. Damage, and played a role in preventing loose and slipping.
2. The teeth on the flange surface of the flanged nut enhances the anti-loose effect of the flanged nut, and has a certain anti-vibration effect, so that the connecting piece with the flanged nut will not loosen during movement and high vibration. Improved safety and robustness.
