Huck Magna-Lok MX designed to replace M10 bolting

Star Fasteners says the new Huck Magna-Lok MX has been specially designed to replace M10 bolting, enabling reduced assembly times and production costs.

Many hours are spent engineering, designing and finally turning raw materials into finished parts, but the next manufacturing step is often assembling and fastening these parts together. While welding, bolting and solid rivets have long been utilised in demanding, load-bearing or high-vibration applications, today’s manufacturers have several strong reasons to consider a proven alternative to these traditional methods.

Huck structural fasteners are proven to hold up over years of service in demanding high-stress, high-vibration environments. Whilst ensuring a secure joint, they can be effectively used with virtually any metal, and dissimilar metals with dissimilar coefficients of thermal expansion present no problems. Varying material thicknesses in a joint are readily accommodated, and surface finishes are not damaged. The Magna-Lok MX has been designed to accommodate standard produced holes traditionally suitable for M10 bolts (the recommended holes size for this is 10.8/11.2mm). For applications where only one side of the joint material is accessible, performance-engineered Huck structural blind fasteners can often meet design requirements.

The Huck Magna-Lok MX (MCHFR) delivers repeatable and consistent joint performance, with washer-free water-resistance (fastener should be application tested to ensure suitability) as well as excellent shear, tensile and fatigue performance. Once installed Magna-Lok MX will consistently perform over time, even when exposed to changing loads (vibration / expanding or contracting), eliminating the need for regular maintenance.

Magna-Lok MX is installed quickly and easily in a matter of seconds, the installation only requiring access to one side of the assembly, meaning only a single labourer is needed. This ensures the assembly is completed both quickly and cost-effectively.

With excellent shear, tensile and fatigue performance, the permanent nature of the joint ensures reduced maintenance costs; the joint does not need to be regularly checked or re-torqued, eliminating ongoing costs over the product lifetime.

The Huck Magna-Lok is a versatile, hole filling fastener that can be installed with conventional and battery-operated installation tools. It has a unique circle-lock design creates an internal lock during installation that virtually eliminates pin pushout by mechanically locking the pin to the sleeve.
