SUPERBOLT

 

Superbolt

(Multi-Jackbolt Tensioner)

Problem: Many shipboard applications require high-torque nuts that are easy to install and remove. Superbolt was desired but was not shock qualified for fleet use.

Solution: MTTC conducted shock testing to highest levels. Superbolt out-performed existing unitary nuts. Results extended to other tensioner materials and sizes.
