Another integration of our versatile PRIMO SC for normal beam measurements with EMAT. In this application, our partner IntoMachines B.V. has integrated PRIMO SC with an Automatic Bolting Machine (ABM).
PRIMO SC provides real-time elongation as the bolts are tightened to a specific pretension, verified by the ultrasonic measurement of PRIMO SC. This solution replaces traditional torque with a far more accurate and reliable measurement of bolt-load for high-stakes applications such as wind turbines.
This work is carried out as part of the Rima Network project Autobolt.
