WDS adds medium tensile forged steel products to T-bolt range
WDS Component Parts Ltd. has extended its offering of medium tensile T-bolts with the addition of a forged steel option that provides more strength and wear resistance than mild steel. These are aimed at applications where the very high strength of low alloy, high tensile steel bolts is not appropriate.
Designed for use with a threaded clamp, to position and secure workpieces for industrial machining, the T-bolts are manufactured in tempered forged steel. Available in sizes from M8 up to M30, and in lengths from 32mm to 400mm, they provide reliable fixture holding in high vibration and large diameter applications.
T-bolts have a square or rectangular shape for use in T-slots to provide flexible clamping systems for workpieces. T-bolts are similar to T-nuts in operation, but offer a male threaded extrusion for attaching modular elements to the fixture application.
The T-bolts are available in two tensile gradings. They meet Class 10.9 standards up to M12 for a minimum tensile strength of 1040MPa, along with improved yield strength and proof strength, meeting the needs of heavier duty applications. Above size M16 they meet Class 8.8 standards offering a minimum tensile strength of 830Mpa.
Visitors to the WDS website are able to download 2D and 3D CAD models of the T-bolts, and can place orders for delivery using a number of different currencies.
The T-bolts form part of the huge range of T-nuts and T-bolts available from WDS. Both metric and imperial sizes are available, as well as standard products and special designs such as rhomboidal, blank and stainless steel products.
