1. Purpose of Threaded Joints

Threaded joints are detachable joints of two or more component parts either directly connected with each other or by standardized fasteners, i.e. bolts, nuts and screws.

Figure 1. Typical example of a threaded joint

Threaded joints are made

- to keep the component parts of the detachable joint in a desired position,

- to provide the force required to produce a joint and maintain this force for the intended period.,

- to transmit motions and forces of component parts.

Suitable locking devices are used where detachable joints have to be secured against the accidental loosening due to the action of dynamic stresses, such as vibration or shock.

No locking devices are required on temporary joints with fine-pitch thread and joints in which the component parts are self-tightening by the sense of their rotation (e.g. drill chucks on hand drills).
