Bolt 4.0 presented at the Hannovermesse

03.05.2017

For the first time, CiS presented a new sensor for testing special bolts in safety-relevant applications on the joint stand of LEG Thuringia at the Hannovermesse 2017. Designated as "Bolt 4.0", the model convinced the trade visitors present.

A sensor applied to the bolt head measures the bolt prestressing force or alternatively, e.g. for the safety-related monitoring of bolt connections, contactlessly via an additionally integrated RFID transponder.

Special bolts of this type are used, for example, in mechanical engineering, conveyor technology and wind turbines. The latter sector in particular showed great interest.

Thus also Prime Minister Bodo Ramelow could convince himself of the enormous potential of this development on the Thuringian day of the Hannovermesse.
