The Experts - The Relation Between Torque, Preload and Friction

Published:  12 April, 2019

In this video, Damien Thomas, Technical Manager at Nord-Lock Group, explains how torque, preload and friction interact. "The break down of torque shows that only 10% of the input torque is useful. All the rest is dissipated by friction. By applying a low friction lubricant, the effect of friction will be greatly reduced," Damien Thomas says. The Experts is a series of videos in which Nord-Lock Group shares the knowledge about bolted connections and how to solve bolting challenges. -------------------------- Nord-Lock Group is a global leader in engineering and bolting technologies.
