Japanese Yamanaka Provides PiezoBolt Embedded with Load Sensor

Yamanaka Eng Co., Ltd’s patented PiezoBolt has an embedded sensor that detects the surrounding load during fastening. With mechanical joining technology, the company can embed the sensor without the use of adhesives. Users can connect the bolt with a specialized measuring software through wire connection to assess anomalies or problems. Without a highly polymerized compound blocking the load transmission, the load will directly reach the sensor to enable high-precision load measurement. Furthermore, the sensor has excellent durability and impact resistance and therefore is suitable for water, oil, powder and dust-filled environment.
