For over 60 years, Skidmore-Wilhelm has provided testing solutions to fastener users around the world. We provide three things to help to people looking for answers to basic questions about torque and tension:
- Bolt tension testing equipment
- Instructions for bolt tension testing
- Training on bolt tension concepts
We developed the first Bolt Tension Calibrator for the construction industry in response to their need to test high strength bolts on site. Since that day our manuals, training, and equipment have been applied successfully at thousands of construction sites all over the world. Our exposure to so many bolting solutions has put us in the unique position to learn and teach about bolt tension.
