Understanding The Bolted Joint (CFS Class)- Chicago, IL

April 7 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Did you know that even Grade 8 bolts stretch when they are tightened, acting like heavy duty springs, and that is why they keep assemblies together?

Did you know that tension in bolts and screws is more critical than the applied torque in making a joint secure?

Do you know what a Skidmore Tester is and what information it provides about fastening that is different from that provided by a torque wrench?

In Understanding the Bolted Joint you’ll learn the answers to these questions and much more.
