The HYTORC clamping method at the elastic limit is an optimal industrial clamping technique.
The preload forces applied to the bolts are often undersized so that they do not exceed the yield point when tightened by torque or tensioner.
The common denominator of the connections is that one wishes to remain in the elastic range of the bolt to control its behavior and guarantee the connection.
The problem that arises is that depending on the precision of the tool used and the tightening conditions, there is always a safety margin that is taken to avoid crossing the elastic limit.
Tightening with a system that detects the elastic limit to stop the tightening is safe because it allows you to make the most of your bolts without the risk of unexpected mechanical damage.
