SMARTBOLTS

SmartBolts® are tension indicating fasteners that ensure proper clamp force is achieved at installation and maintained over time. Each SmartBolt features a visual indicator that changes color to measure and display tension in real time. Tension creates the clamp force that keeps a bolted joint secure.

Measuring tension is the best way to keep a bolted joint secure because tension creates clamp force. Clamp force holds a bolted joint together and prevents it from loosening. If bolt tension is monitored, we can ensure bolted joints are properly secured.

VISUAL INDICATION SYSTEM

Are you spending far too much time and effort manually inspecting important bolted connections? SmartBolts has you covered with our revolutionary Visual Indication System!

Our patented technology turns from red to black as you tighten the bolt. It’s not just a color change; it’s a reliable method of measuring bolt tension. The color shift is proportional to bolt stretch, providing precise and trustworthy measurements every time.
