What is flange?

Mechanical flange is a common connection method used in engineering, machinery, and pipeline systems. It is used to connect two edges on flat surfaces, typically connecting pipes, valves, pumps, or other equipment together.

The main features of mechanical flanges are their ease of disassembly and reliable sealing, making them an essential connection method in many industrial and commercial applications. Here are some characteristics of mechanical flanges:


  1. Disassembly: Mechanical flanges are typically composed of two flange faces (flat plate-like parts) and several bolts and nuts. This allows the flange to be easily disassembled and reinstalled, facilitating maintenance and equipment replacement.

  2. Sealing: Mechanical flanges can provide a reliable seal, which is crucial for preventing fluid or gas leaks. Sealing is especially important in applications involving high pressure or hazardous substances.

  3. Multiple standards: Mechanical flanges come in various standards, including ANSI (American National Standards Institute), DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung - German Industrial Standards), JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards), and others. Different standards specify the dimensions, number, and location of bolt holes for the flanges.

In summary, mechanical flanges are a widely used connection method in engineering and machinery fields, known for their ease of disassembly and reliable sealing. They provide a convenient connection solution for various applications.

Therefore, when customers choose YIH KUAN angle head, they need to consider not only their specific usage needs but also how the angle head will connect to their milling machine spindle head. Does it match in size? We will request customers to provide the spindle drawing to assist in checking the dimensions. Once the flange design is confirmed, customers can make the flange themselves, making it convenient to install the angle head upon receiving it.
