The different types of mechanical mates are used in the assembly of metal components. There are four types of mechanical mates:
- A mechanical joint is a type of mechanical mate that uses a threaded connection. Threaded connections allow for a tight fit, which prevents looseness or looseness during use.
- A swivel joint is a type of mechanical mate that rotates about its axis and allows for movement in one direction only. The swivel joint is most commonly found on heavy machinery such as cranes, bulldozers, and excavators.
