BS464 Thimble is a type of fastener that is designed for use in various industrial and construction applications. It is typically used in critical applications such as bridges, towers, offshore structures, and other large-scale structures where high loads and demanding conditions are present.
The BS464 Thimble has a threaded shank that engages with a mating nut to securely fasten two or more components together. The threaded shank provides reliable engagement with the mating nut, and the threaded section typically extends the entire length of the shank. The thimble also has a loop at one end of the shank that provides a reliable attachment point for a tension member such as a cable or chain.
The BS464 Thimble is typically made from high-quality stainless steel, which ensures that it has good mechanical properties, including high tensile strength and impact resistance, while also being corrosion-resistant. The threaded engagement between the thimble and the mating nut allows for easy installation and disassembly, while also providing a high level of torsional strength and stability to the fastened assembly.
The BS464 Thimble is commonly used in various types of equipment and structures, including but not limited to:
• Machinery and equipment components
• Hoisting and lifting equipment
• Transmission and distribution systems
• Security and safety systems
• Mining and excavation equipment
The thimble loop provides a convenient attachment point for tension members such as cables, chains, or ropes. The loop can be easily engaged with the tension member, providing a reliable connection that can withstand high tensile loads. The threaded engagement between the thimble and the mating nut allows for easy installation and disassembly, while also providing a high level of torsional strength and stability to the fastened assembly.
The BS464 Thimble is typically used in critical applications where high loads and demanding conditions are present. It is also highly corrosion-resistant, which means that it is suitable for use in outdoor applications where exposure to moisture and chemicals is likely. Its combination of mechanical strength, durability, and corrosion resistance make it an excellent choice for a range of industrial and construction applications where high-quality fasteners are required.
