FAQ: How does PiezoClamping® measure prestress?
Prestress real time measurement by PiezoClamping during a converter assembly.
PiezoClamping®’s technology is based on the integration of the electrical charge flow to determine prestress in piezoceramics during bolt preloading. The instrument calculates the prestress considering the total charge, the effective charge constant, the dimensions and the number of ceramics in the transducer.
