Easy preload measurement
A true innovation in the field of preload monitoring, the Superbolt Load-Sensing Tensioner (LST) is among the first of Nord-Lock Group’s Industry 4.0 products.
Equipped with a strain-measuring device, the patented LST analyzes the variation of the tensioner’s circumference in proportion to the variation in bolt preload. Additionally, the LST offers remote monitoring and a live reading of data – all with an accuracy that is better than +/-5%!
In the same way we are now connecting to our home systems remotely, why wouldn’t industries do the same thing and connect to critical components to maintain them?
