PATENTED LOAD INDICATING TECHNOLOGY

THE MAXBOLT™

The Maxbolt™ Load Indicating Fastener System continuously measures and displays the amount of tension in a bolt or stud. The system offers a simple method for accurate joint assembly and is the only product available, for most applications, which will continually monitor clamping force while the fastener is in service. This aids in maintaining the integrity of the bolted joint.

Key FEATURES

• Displays load based on direct tension

• Compatible with conventional tightening equipment

CAPABILITIES

• Displays load based on direct tension

• Compatible with conventional tightening equipment

MANUFACTURING

• Displays load based on direct tension

• Compatible with conventional tightening equipment

Maxbolt Load Indicating Fasteners, a patented product of Valley Forge & Bolt Mfg. Co., can revolutionize how a company looks at fasteners—and reduce downtime, premature wear, and catastrophic joint failures.

How can a simple bolt be so effective? For starters, Maxbolt is far from simple. There is an extremely accurate and durable load-monitoring device inserted into each fastener. At a glance, technicians will know when proper load is achieved. During operation, technicians will know if load ever falls out of spec on any bolt, addressing the need immediately instead of waiting for critical equipment failure.

HANDLING HOT TEMPS? 

THE HIGH TEMP MAXBOLT™

INDUSTRY SPOTLIGHT – THE MINING INDUSTRY

Whether on the surface or below the surface, extraction and processing of raw materials is a constant challenge.  Mining sites require maximum, optimized uptime with minimum scheduled downtime in order to keep productivity at a peak.  Sounds like this is the same story for most industries? The answer is yes, but the challenge in mining is the working environment and the way in which many mining and ore processing machines are actually designed to operate.

For example, incredible shock loads and vibrations can be experienced during rock crushing and milling operations for example.  Now throw in some additional challenges such as slurry and mill uptime faces multiple hurdles in order to keep the flow of ore or precious metals going without interruption. This is why threaded fasteners are critical in achieving and maintaining equipment integrity in mining.

TESTIMONIALS

“We highly recommend Ron’s company and their technology, as a fix for any serious bolting problems being experienced no mater how big or small. Ron has helped us to save over twenty million dollars with his inventions and technological wizardry and should be given the recognition he deserves.”

“During the past eight years, we have lost millions because of down time due to broken bolts. Your product has come through as advertised and although it won’t completely stop the problem, the Maxbolts will certainly make the problem less costly and much more manageable.”
