Testing of fasteners
Range of services of our materials testing laboratory
Our materials laboratory has the testing instruments and equipment to carry out the various tests in the field of materials testing.
In the following table, you will find some abbreviations for named designations.
|Fastener consisting of a head and a threaded rod (cylindrical body with external thread) needed to interact with a nut and fasten two parts with through holes. This type of connection is called a bolted connection. When the nut is unscrewed from the bolt, the two parts can be separated so that the bolt connection is a detachable connection.
|With internally threaded holes, the shape is generally flat hexagonal, cylindrical or flat cylindrical
|A type of cap without a head, threaded only at both ends. When connecting, one end must be screwed into the part with the female threaded hole and the other end through the part with the through hole. The nut is then screwed to the bolt . This type of connection is called a bolt connection, it is a detachable connection.
What are the advantages of examining fasteners?
By regularly inspecting fasteners, you can prevent component failures and thus damage that is usually significantly higher than the failure of the fastener alone. Because when a connection fails, the entire component often fails as well. Take advantage of our testing of fasteners - and make your component fail-safe!
