To ensure that the quality of our bolts is consistently of the highest order, we are making sure that our quality checking equipment is to the latest standard. In the last month, we have purchased an Elcometer coating thickness gauge with an enhanced digital readout feature. It is important that the correct plating deposit is used as this can affect the torque features of the joint.
A Baty shadowgraph with a maximum magnification factor of 10x is used to check threadforms, angles and any dimensional measurements. It is fitted with a Quadracheck 2000 digital readout.
We are looking forward to receiving delivery of a Dennison 50 tonne tensile testing machine. More information concerning this will be available after Easter.
