Nord-Lock introduces torque calculating app, Torquelator

Nord-Lock has launched Torquelator, a torque calculating application that runs on mobile devices as well as computers.

Torquelator calculates pre-load and corresponding torque for bolted joints secured with Nord-Lock washers. Users can choose between two different calculation methods, Kellermann&Klein or VDI2230.

According to Nord-Lock, it only takes a few clicks to select bolt size (metric and imperial), bolt grade and lubricant, which then provides the correct torque guide.

The Torquelater joins a number of calculation software options available to the fastener industry. We've got a guide to some of the anchor calculation software options now available to the market, featuring HECO, Berner, Apolo MEA, JCP, Hilti and DesignFiX.
