Maxbolt load-indicating fasteners can reduce downtime, premature wear, and catastrophic joint failures. An accurate and durable load-monitoring device is inserted into each fastener. Technicians can see if clamp load ever falls out of spec on any bolt and address the need immediately. Maxbolt offers clamp loads within 5 percent of design specification. The measurements are based on tension, eliminating inaccurate toque control. Custom labels can show desired operating ranges using a green zone or pinpoint precise clamp load values. The Maxbolt load-indicating system provides safety and reliability in a bolted joint, acting as a constant barometer of the integrity of the bolted joint and providing an added degree of safety.
