Keeping heavy duty vehicles safe

BMG’s comprehensive portfolio of Nord-Lock bolt securing products include robust wheel nuts, designed to safely secure wheel joints on both on-road and heavy-duty vehicles – even under severe conditions.

Safe wheel assemblies rely on a high clamp load. Loss of clamp load leads to movement between the clamped parts in the joint, causing rotation and loosening of the wheel nut. This results in unbalanced wheels and wheel detachments, which is dangerous and costly.

Conventional wheel nuts lack a locking function and can therefore rotate loose especially on poor road conditions and as result of high vehicle speed. Wheel detachment is also caused by inadequate tightening techniques and joint relaxation, as well as thermal expansion and contraction of wheel bolts.
