Frequently Asked Questions
Tightening Quality is the optimal solution if you have problems with specific joints. We measure the clamp load, torque, and the whole progression of the joint, including snug level, elastic, plastic area, and yield point. All the above is necessary to define the issue and provide a sufficient target torque specification or tightening process. If Tightening Technique cannot solve the problem, we highlight improvements in your design.
