Ultrasonic Load Measurement

Pulse-echo measurement technique


Installed Load Tightening Accuracy (any tool) ± 3%(3σ) Load Inspection Through Life cycle of Bolt (30+ years) ±5%(3σ) Accuracy The i-Bolt® Technology Technology takes the end users’ fasteners and applies a permanent 2-D transducer (only 50 microns thick) at the top or bottom of each bolt. The form, fit or function of the fastener is…

Smart bolt that tells you accurately installed load   through life cycle of itself.


i-Bolts use transducer embedded bar codes to
measure load and track data.

LoadMaster® 3600

The LoadMaster® 3600 is an i-Bolt® load measurement system for inspecting bolt load or measuring and controlling load during assembly. This unit comes with a 1- year warranty and software upgrades, includes an i-Probe®, integrated calibration bolt and temperature probe. The LoadMaster® 3600 is available (supplied) with a LoadMaster® DataManager® laptop PC. This portable unit…

All types of existing hand-powered and powered production assembly tools, including low-cost impulse and impact tools, can be easily adapted for precise load control with ultrasonic fasteners. The transducer is configured so that it can be pulsed and read using a single, inexpensive, spring-loaded contact embodied into the drive of an existing tool. The return…
