The securing systems integrated into the various locknuts permit simple and accurate mounting and provide for lasting stability, according to IBC. There is no need to provide for any retaining facility within the thread, for instance grooves, to hold locking washers. As a result, the full material cross-section of the shaft is preserved, and a notch effect does not occur. By substituting imprecise locking washers with clamping devices, the manufacturers point out that customers can achieve greater axial accuracy with reduced axial run-out. A further alternative to fitting separate seals is the use of an integrated labyrinth seal. This range of technical possibilities is said to allow the user to realize a whole variety of options, with increased efficiency as a consequence.
