Lock wire, commonly known as safety wire, is a tiny component that plays a vital role in a variety of industries. Brookfield Wire’s design ensures that fasteners remain tight for dependable performance. If safety wire is not built up to spec, the harsh conditions present, for example, in an aircraft, can loosen the bolts, nuts, and screws that hold key components together. As a result, dangerous mechanical failures can occur. Naturally, failure is not an option. The same logic holds true in sports crafts, braking mechanisms, and more. The fact that Brookfield Wire has successfully manufactured safety wire for decades is a testament to our expertise and experience.
Industries with high-vibration environments require dependable lockwire. The continuous shaking, jolting, and jarring of industrial applications tend to loosen the hold of fasteners. As a result of a loosening bolt, dangerous mechanical failures can occur. When it comes to mission-critical flight controls, throttle mechanisms, and braking devices, failure is not an option.
Safety wire is threaded through fasteners in order to cancel out the torque force of fasteners attempting to unwind. Therefore, lock wire is a critical tool to ensure not only top performance but also the safety of your team. Applications such as sports cars, aircraft turbine engines, and even weaponry benefit from safety lock wire. Other systems such as braking mechanisms, throttle systems, and even flight controls rely on lock wire to prevent serious malfunctions and to keep all valuable components in place.
