Re: Computing Failure Torque for Helicoil Threads in 6061-T6 Aluminum
In Reply to Parent Post by bills5
Can anyone tell me how to compute the maximum allowable torque for a 4-40 helicoil (.112 nominal length) in 6061-t6 aluminum?
Welcome to the Cove.
I don't think there's any way to calculate the value because of the variables involved--thickness of material, the integrity of the existing threads, proper insertion of the Helicoil, etc.
