Fit-for-Life Connections

Four fasteners bringing together two flanges is a popular method of connectivity in high-pressure applications. This connection allows for weight to be distributed evenly among the four fasteners, thereby reducing stress and the possibility of failing joints due to vibrations. As standards in production continue to improve, pressure ratings are higher than the industry has seen previously, leading to greater quality.

New Washer Uses Electricity to Measure a Bolt’s Clamping Force

Piezoelectric materials can generate a voltage when they are under mechanical stress. The piezoelectric filaments of the washer will be connected to a handheld device that registers the amount of preload, or bolt clamping force, by reading the intensity of electrical outputs. This breakthrough will be beneficial to areas where the right preload is crucial such as construction, automobile assembly, nuclear power, racing, aviation and space.
