DESCRIPTION

In the industrial sector, assemblies face extreme conditions, including vibrations, repeated stress, temperature variations, and shocks, often leading to nut loosening. Industries typically investigate to solutions like bolt locking or implement periodic maintenance to avoid accidents and potential injuries, incurring significant down time and costs.


JPB Système has designed and produced a dedicated sensor that monitors the tension in your assembly in real-time. Whether you deal with critical fasteners requiring periodic torque checks, face challenges with preventive maintenance, or difficulties accessing fasteners, our Smart Program solution offers a cost-effective and time-saving approach. It automatically records tension, enabling a shift towards predictive maintenance.

With our solution, you can eliminate routine checks and tighten fasteners only when necessary, optimizing efficiency and reducing costs. 

HOW IT WORKS

JPB Système has developed specialized strain gauges that enable the size reduction of the sensor. Installing the sensor in your assembly is straightforward. The sensor is equipped with smart electronics that process and convert measurements into a robust signal, unaffected by communication distance or temperature variations. This ensures a high level of accuracy across the entire operating range.

To complement this technology, JPB Système has also developed a data acquisition system and display solutions tailored to your specific needs:

2 SOLUTIONS EASY TO USE

 

Prior to assembly, calibration of the Smart Washer is a simple process. Set the Smart Washer to '0%' using either the RFiD Smart Washer reader or the app (Wired Smart Washer). Place the Smart Washer on the non-rotating part of the fastener, such as the screw head or nut. Tighten the bolt using your torque wrench in the usual manner - there's no need to alter your torque value.

Once the bolt is properly tightened, establish the '100%' level using the reader or the app. At any point, you can check the variation in tension in the fastener: perform a manual check with the RFiD Smart Washer reader or a manual/automatic check using the app (Wired Smart Washer).
