There are dozens of training programs, magazine articles and book chapters on the fastener torque-tension relationship.

But this webinar will focus on the one aspect of torque-tension that matters most to the end user - the K-Factor.

And if it matters to the end user it matters to the supplier!

In this webinar you will learn -


        The math behind the K-Factor - itís not that hard

        How the K-Factor is often made overly complicated by engineers

        How to determine all of the factors that determine K-Factor

        How to conduct your own K-Factor determination experiments

        Torque-Tension Test Equipment - from the simple to the ridiculous to the ridiculously expensive

        Specifications that cover Torque-Tension testing and K-Factor determination

        Technical resources for K-Factor information

        How to properly specify and report K-Factor performance

        What coating suppliers donít tell you about K-Factor

        What are the best lubricants and coatings for K-Factor control

        To torque or not to torque?  What are the alternatives?


Thereís more to K-Factor than T = K D P ! Attend this webinar and you can understand the illusive K-Factor!


This is a technical program but is appropriate for all levels of experience and all positions in the fastener industry.
