Berg Propulsion Relies on LOCTITE to Provide Reliability

Berg Propulsion: High-Tech From Sweden

The island Ockero, off Sweden’s west coast, is home to the ship propeller manufacturer Berg Propulsion, one of Sweden’s leading high tech companies.

The demands placed on the reliability and durability of Bergs propellers are enormous: once the propeller is fitted to the vessel, alterations become extremely difficult and the propellers are in use for 25 years or more.

LOCTITE products are used to provide reliability along the whole manufacturing process: assembly of hydraulic pipes, fixing of hydraulic pipe systems, processing of propeller hubs, securing of steering mechanisms, end cap fixing on hub shafts, and securing dowel pins for propeller blades.
