USM-3 Ultrasonic Bolt Meters now offer capacity for even faster updates of fastener elongation and load than previously available, it’s announced.
It’s designed to help collect and analyze data on torque or torque + angle and the relationship to bolt load over time. USM-3 measures elongation and load of a tightened bolt — rather than friction-biased torques.
This instrument reads elongation and load in almost any size bolt of any material. It uploads resulting data to Windows PCs. This fast update ability permits hand-held USM-3 to more rapidly determine bolt load or elongation with lab data recorders and while actually tightening with powered tools, notes the manufacturer.
