Clamping force

## Atlas Copco Tools

This must be avoided!

## Atlas Copco Tools

Measuring the tighteming

We measure the
applied torque

We WANT to measure
the clamping force

## Atlas Copco Tools

Torque T=Fxr F

Ta
2r

F
Ta=2Fr
Tb=Fr
which gives Ta= 2 Tb

## First figure = 1/100 of min

tensile stress (N/mm2)
100* 8 = 800 N/mm2

## Second figure = relation

between tensile stress
and yield 0,8 = 80%

## Multiply the two figures to

get the yield stress
800* 0,8 = 640 N/mm2
