The resulting tension, or stretching of the bolt, creates the clamp force... that keeps the joint together. Torque and tension are related primarily by friction. Tests have shown that 90% of the energy used to tighten a bolt is to overcome friction. Controlling... friction is the critical element to successful bolt installation because small variations in friction can cause large changes in bolt tension. We also make units that are designed...
