according to test requirements such as BS Pt. 2 or ISO This can be expressed in two ways, the Coefficient of Friction µ and the Torque Coefficient (K . ISO FASTENERS – TORQUE/CLAMP FORCE TESTING. DIN EN ISO Fasteners – Torque/clamp force testing (ISO + Amd ) (includes Amendment).

This standard also specifies how these coefficient of friction levels can be calculated. The respective complementary partial torque can be identified via subtraction.
The variety around the topic of corrosion and corrosion protection is also in our glossary at home: Based on this data, the nut factor or total coefficient of friction can be calculated and used to evaluate the effect of various fastener finishes, coatings, lubricants and manufacturing processes.
In this process the fasteners are screwed to their own washer. This technique has a distinct advantage because the actual joint and fastener can be tested without compromising the joint stiffness through the introduction of a load cell. Electrostatic powder spraying EPS.
Eddy current method amplitude sensitive. Tightening specifications for normal fasteners are also applied for those with washers.
A bolt that requires testing is screwed into the test bench and fixed with a reference bolt. This standard is not included in any packages. Virtual Validation FEA can give virtual insight into the structural integrity of new designs before any capital is spent building parts.
Because if bolts and screws are too loose, components may move. Every day, thousands upon thousands of screws and bolts are used to fasten components together.
Product Validation, Verification and Testing
Simple instrumented fixtures with manual testing and data capture Automated testing of complex systems with customized control dashboards and reports. These include the geometry of the screw and the friction between fastener and components.
Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. Read more about subscriptions. Not only can FEA show where new parts may have potential issues, it can be used to diagnose failures seen in the field, and also to optimize designs in order to reduce cost. Cross-cut test for adhesion. In cases where fluid flow is critical either gas or liquid CFD can be used to optimize flow and minimize turbulence, or to predict how two different liquids are mixing, etc. They can also be used to cover larger holes.
In practice, tightening instructions often specify fitting fasteners with a specific torque. There are many types of engineering simulation and analyses that Matrix Engineering Consultants performs either as a stand-alone service or integrated into our projects.
Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping. In this it is also necessary to take into consideration the geometry of the fasteners — more precisely, the increase of the thread, its flank diameter and the diameter of the head contact.
Nevertheless, coefficients of friction are determined for these parts. Need more than one copy? This will give you increased confidence in your fastener designs and manufacturing processes.
Start Webshop Product catalog Product presentation. Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. The benefits of a subscription: Galvanised reference parts do not rust in storage.
Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts. With these tests it is also possible to check the quality of the coating in ongoing production.
You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time. If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. Similarly, varying degrees of roughness are possible for both types. Coefficients of friction calculated according to ISO standard need to be regarded with caution, however. Some of the capabilities at Matrix Engineering Consultants include: Webprint Printed and bound.
However, specialists also take a closer look. You need to log in before adding standards to the monitoring service. We have no document history for this standard. The friction between roughened surfaces is greater than between smooth ones. Uncoated reference parts are oiled to protect against corrosion and later cleaned again.
The relationship between input torque and induced tension in a specific fastener application can be determined by testing the fastener with a calibrated load cell and torque device.
The bolt heads lie on a reference base plate or a reference washer.
For hard bases the standard prescribes a narrow range of hardness, but permits a broad range of hardness for soft bases. However, the resultant clamp force is dependent on several factors. Surfaces often have a major influence on this. A web subscription provides an easy and secure access to standards, and you are guaranteed ieo always have the latest edition.
MEC can be perform tests on actual izo assemblies to obtain torque-angle graphs and to establish the torque to reach the yield strength of the bolt. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. They are identified via torque and clamp force. The ISO standard describes reproducible laboratory tests.
