Nueva conexión (tuerca y tornillo) con patente pendiente


Oferta Tecnológica
Una pyme sueca especializada en fabricación mecánica ha desarrollado un nuevo tipo de conexión (tornillo y tuerca) con patente pendiente. Este diseño permite que la tuerca se deslice a lo largo del tornillo de forma sencilla sin necesidad de girarlo mucho. De esta manera es posible colocar tornillos y tuercas de forma rápida y segura y reducir el tiempo de instalación y la cantidad de herramientas necesarias. La empresa busca socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia.


Patent pending innovative screw and nut
A mechanical manufacturing SME from Northern Sweden has developed an award winning, and patent pending, new type of fastener (screw and nut). The design allows the nut to slide along the screw or threaded rod, simply and without excessive twisting. This means quick and secure assembly of screws, threaded rods and nuts that will minimize the assemble time drastically and lower the amount of tools required for mounting. The company is looking for partners for license agreement.
A Swedish SME in the field of mechanical manufacturing has developed an innovative mechanical fastening device.

The problem with conventional screws and nuts is that work is often time consuming and performed in poor posture, for example with both hands over the head.

The solution is a new type of screw and nut that solves the problem by a design that allows sliding up the nut along the screw or threaded rod simply and without excessive twisting to the point of the hold, where it is easily fastened.

The unique two-part design allows the nut to be adjusted in its holding position in the same way as a regular nut but it only requires one quarter-turn rotation to return to the state that allows it to slide off again. According to time studies, this solution saves between 60-80% of working time compared to a regular screw, and saves up to 99% on a threaded rod on which a nut should be fastened in the middle.

The solution reduces the amount of tools needed for installation and reduces time spent working in physically unsafe and straining postures.

The company wants to expand and find new new application areas for its technology. They are looking for partners that are interested in licensing of the technology.
