Nut Runner Force/Torque

  |  
Application Summary
Using both a rotary torque sensor and load cell, we can establish a relationship between the bolt tension and the torque that is applied.
Products in Use
A LTH Series Donut/Thru Hole Load Cell and a Rotary Torque Sensor paired with FUTEK's USB520 and SENSIT™ Test and Measurement Software. View Product Details
Load Cell - Nut Runner Force/Torque
How it Works
  1. A standard Donut/Thru Hole Load Cell is used on a bolt and nut assembly, similar to our bolt-fastening application scenario.
  2. Additionally, a rotary torque sensor is used to measure the torque that is also applied by the electric nut runner within the assembly.
  3. To monitor each sensors measurements, operators can pair the Donut/Thru Hole Load Cell and Rotary Torque Sensor with FUTEK's USB Solutions.
  4. Utilizing FUTEK's SENSIT™ Test and Measurement Software alongside the USB520 External USB Kit (mV/V, amplified and encoder input) will allow operators the ability to capture, live graph and interpret the data.
  5. The USB520 is the ideal data exchange solution for systems that require translation of rotary torque encoder readings, such as angle and speed. Its compact and robust design also makes the USB520 fitting for this type of industrial application.
  6. Thus, the end user can measure and monitor the thrust using the LTH series. In parallel, the rotary torque sensor will measure the torque, angle, and speed.
