Grooved bolt configurator

With the mbo Osswald bolt configurator, fastener customers can find and specify bolts with grooves online.

They combine the bolt form, material, shaft diameter and retainer version with freely definable length or grip length.

The configurator automatically calculates the required minimum dimensions at the touch of a button, creates the corresponding dimensional drawing and displays the price and current delivery time. Next, customers simply enter the required quantity and place it in their online shopping cart.

Also, the required quantity of the selected retainer type can also be added.

Bolts with or without head can be chosen in either steel or stainless steel. The all-round slot applied to the shaft can be configured for various standard retainer types: Locking washer DIN 6799, retaining ring DIN 471, SL-retainer, KL-retainer and bayonet clip.

Other configurators offered by the German manufacturer, all of which are on its website, include DIN, EN and ISO bolts, joint rods, threaded rods, and sleeves (via uploading a digital computer design).
