Description of the testing procedure and features

Test procedure
Clear visual comparison of actual versus target performance

The ITH Bolt Tensioning Cylinder test stand allows automatic testing of bolt tensioning cylinders including the measurement and documentation of the applied pressure in bar.

Additionally itcompares the actual versus target performance: the pressure-tension force diagram shows the user clearly a comparison of

  1. the theoretical force in kN compared to
  2. the actual applied force in kN.

The testing process is controlled by ITH software.

  • The results are automatically saved in an Excel or PDF sheet and are available for additional processing.
  • Each test interval is automatic and can be filed systematically.

The testing procedure: Easy and fast usage

  1. Test bolts M20 to M72 (3/4" to 3") are directly mounted to the quick-clamp mechanisms of the measuring device.
  2. The bolt tensioning cylinder is threaded onto the test bolt and the coupling is connected to an integrated ITH hydraulic pump (ITH Hydro-MAX 38 in standard)
  3. Easy entry of all relevant data with the thouchsreen display:
    - Data of the worker
    - Data of the customer
    - Data of the Tool
  4. After all data is in the system the test procedure starts automatically. The pressure build-up hydraulic pump is controlled automatically by the ITH software.
  5. The digital documentation system measures and saves the applied pressure and then compares the actual versus target performance: The pressure - force diagram of the theoretical force compared to the applied force in kN.
  6. The test result documentation can be generated automatically (PDF or Excel-files). The built sheets can be transferred via USB-ports or LAN-connections for any further processing.

  1. Industrial touchscreen PC
    Including the user-friendly ITH management software for automated testing procedures.
  2. ITH hydraulic pump
    ITH Hydro-MAX 38 (standard) positioned at the retractable drawer under the testing area. The hydraulic pump is directly controlled by the ITH software of the PC.
  3. Transducer
    Test bolts form M20 to M72 ((3/4" to 3") can be mounted at the quick-clamp mechanisms.
  4. Additional features
    4 castors (front swivel and lockable), emergency stop switch, 4 eyebolt lifting points for crane transportation, reinforced safety-frame.
