Galling is a type of mechanical wear induced by high friction. It’s a severe risk to the quality and safety of expensive and vital assets, such as wind turbines.
When pressure and friction induce the bolt threads to grip to the threads of a nut or a tapped hole, this is known as thread galling. The two surfaces can potentially fuse together due to severe galling, often known as “cold welding.” Because of their unique qualities, standard stainless steel bolts and fasteners have a tendency to gall under particular conditions. When designing a fastener application, it’s critical to think about how galling may be avoided from the start to reduce the likelihood of repairs and maintenance expenditures. To keep galling and its harmful repercussions we can create every fastener according to your needs.
