Controlled clamping with digital indicators

Since some customers wished to read the bolt elongation directly from the flanged connection – as an alternative to the OKTO sensors – we have integrated digital indicators with a display into the hydraulic clamping fixture system. However, since they are somewhat larger in construction than the OKTO sensors, their area of application is rather more limited. Otherwise there is no difference to the TEMES okto.ms system.

The measuring range of the digital indicators is 12 mm, the resolution is 1 µm. The data logging system for the digital indicators is also a unit for up to 8 sensors. As many units as desired can be combined so that the bolts can be measured simultaneously.

We have extended the accompanying software in this respect, so that these sensors can also be assessed using the same program. Therefore, there are no changes for the user when hydraulically clamping with our system.
