Henkel’s Loctite anaerobic adhesives are being used by New Holland in the manufacture of its combine harvesters. The products are used to support critical bolt connections throughout the machines’ operating life, during which they are exposed to acute and lasting vibration.

The Loctite 270 thread locker is used on the twin-rotor thresher, one of the most severely stressed components in the 600hp combine harvesters.

New Holland engineers also use Loctite 638, an anaerobic high-strength adhesive, in assembling the shaft hub joints.

The Loctite 542 threaded sealant is used in the assembly of the hydraulic system to prevent leaks, even under harsh conditions.

The Loctite 515 flange sealant is used during pre-assembly to protect the axle bearings against moisture from the washing process.

Key benefits of product application

  • Loctite 270 ensures that the thresher bolts will withstand the extreme vibration caused by the threshing action during harvesting.
  • Loctite 638, with the help of an activator, cures rapidly and securely fixes the central gear in readiness for arduous operation.
  • Loctite 542 ensures that the machines run smoothly.
  • Loctite 515 helps save time and costs without compromising the reliability of components.
  • New Holland also involves Henkel in its in-house employee training centre.
