An Aerospace Company was working on a test plan that involved taking torque & compression measurements on fasteners with varying joint materials. The system required both high and low sampling rates, in addition to the capability of precisely measuring force and torque simultaneously. They required reliable accuracy and long-term stability. The test plan intended to provide verfication of required force and torque specifications for fasteners, to ensure safety without compromising installation.
Learn how this was accomplished using an Interface Model LW Load Washer, a Model T12 Square Drive Rotary Torque Transducer and an SI-USB Universal Serial Bus Dual Channel PC Interface Module.
