Threaded Joint

 

(threaded connection), a joining of parts by means of threads. Threaded joints are the most common type of releasable connections, which employ various fastenings to ensure relative immobility of the joined elements of machines and mechanisms. Threaded joints usually use fastenings, such as bolts, screws, and nuts. The strength and durability of threaded joints depend on the design of parts, precision of manufacture, and engineering factors. Threaded joints with taper thread are the type most widely used to join pipes, since this type of thread gives the joints the necessary airtightness.

The objective is to choose an insert with sufficient torque resistance to accommodate the tightening torque necessary to achieve sufficient axial tension load on the threaded joint to keep it together and prevent loosening, while also achieving pull-out values necessary for the load conditions that the insert will be exposed to while in service.
