Frankenstein Bolt Fastening
Application Summary

Ensuring that the monster’s head stays in place, our good friend Dr. Frankenstein uses FUTEK’s LTH Donut/Thru Hole Load Cells to measure the tightening forces applied to his bolts.


Products in Use

Donut/Thru Hole Load Cell (LTH Series) paired with a TRS series Rotary Torque Sensor and Instrumentation (USB Solutions).


How it Works
  1. It would be "off with his head" if Dr. Frankenstein were to let his monster's bolts loosen.

  2. Not wanting to overshadow the infamous tale of the headless horseman, Dr. Frankenstein used FUTEK's Rotary Torque Sensor to ensure that the torque he applied as he tightened the bolts would withstand the ravages of time.

  3. Yet, Frankenstein didn't want to over torque the bolts as well. Thus, he incorporated the use for FUTEK's Donut/Thru-Hole Load Cell to fine-tune this procedure.

  4. His precise  measurements for both torque and force were streamed via the blood red USB520 device and the onyx USB220 to be displayed onto his 21st Century Turing Machine.

  5. To learn more about bolt fastening in a realistic setting, see application 102.
