Customer Need / Challenge
Over-tightening bolts during installation can cause damage to the objects being installed.
Using Interface’s LWCF Load Washers along with Interface Instrumentation can provide a solution that monitors the force being applied during bolt tightening.
Bolts are tightened to the correct force targets and objects are installed undamaged.
- LWCF Load Washer
- INF-USB3 PC Interface Module which comes with logging and graphing software
- Customer supplied bolt and nut
|HOW IT WORKS|
- Model LWCF Load Washer is installed between the bolt head and nut. The load washer will measure the load as torque is applied to the nut.
- Using Model INF-USB3 PC Module, force readings from the load cell will be displayed, logged, and graphed directly into the PC.
