The above details specify the maximum load in metric tonnes, with the rotating load ring GN 586.1 fixed in place and set in load direction.
The contact surface of the rotating load ring GN 586.1 must be flat and at a right angle to the tapped bore.
When fixed to the member, the attachment bolt must be allowed to rotate freely by 360°. Only the hexagonal bolt supplied with the load ring may be used.
The load ring must move freely and must not be supported by edges.
Before applying the load, both the load ring and the attachment bolt must be turned in load direction, observing the permissible loading depending on the direction of the load ring. Rotating load rings are not suitable for frequent rotations under load.
The specified loading values are valid for a minimum bolt embedment depth of 1,5 × nominal thread diameter in steel with a minimum tensile strength of 37 kp/mm2 at an operating temperature of between -40 °C and +100 °C. Load capacities under different conditions provided on request.
Operating instructions with more details and specifications are included with every delivery (see also www.elesa-ganter.com).
