Mechanical and locomotive fasteners are a vital component of maintenance of way (MOW), which can have a significant impact on the overall safety of a track. Over time, some fasteners may loosen due to the vibrations from passing trains; this can pose a threat to engineers, railroad workers, and train passengers.
Tamper resistant bolts and screws and Torx Bolts, in combination with an accompanying product like Torx flange nuts, are an effective fastening system when it comes to resisting the movements and vibrations caused by passing locomotives. For this reason, these fasteners are often used in vital positions like switches and turnouts.
Mechanical and locomotive fasteners are easy to use, with simple installation and torquing instructions that allow workers to effectively perform their necessary frequent track maintenance.
