Does torque mean tight?  

We asked Scott Donnachie, a fastener professional with over 21 years of experience in the industry of fasteners and automotive a chartered mechanical engineer, to summarize his view on why preload / achieved clamp load in a joint need to become more of an active focus in the industry.

New feature: Real Time mode

Strainlabs System has been developed to enable remote and automated inspections of bolted joints over time. However, preload data has additional values and one of them is the ability to get preload values presented in Real Time.

The value of bolt preload  

Bolt inspections and retightening routines are common and reoccurring across industries. Get an overview on the natural causes why bolt preload changes over time and learn about the main values of digitalization of bolts.
