Understanding Fastener Testing Terminology

Did you know there are at least 10 different types of strength tests relating to fasteners?

Fastener Specifications and Test Reports are loaded with technical terms that you must understand to make the fastener and to know if it was properly made.

This webinar will explore all of the must-know terms as well as some of the most misused and misunderstood Fastener Testing Terminology.

We will also look how to know when a particular test is required, when it is optional, and when it just not practical or possible.
And how do we know how to conduct these tests anyway?

We will cover testing terminology relating specifically to fasteners in these areas:

• Hardness
• Strength –Tensile, Proof Load, Yield, Impact, Shear
• Ductility
• Toughness
• Chemistry –Raw Material
• Heat Treatment
• Microstructure
• Fatigue
• Creep
• Hydrogen Embrittlement
• Locking Performance
• Coatings
• Non-destructive testing
• Manufacturing Methods
• Sampling Plans
• Torque- Tension

You will learn how to read and understand the laboratory test reports for the fastener product that you buy, use and sell.
You will learn how to tell kips from ksi from psi from MPa, and HRC from HRB from HB from HRN from HRN from HV.

This is a technical webinar, but the content is appropriate for all levels of experience.
Anyone involved in the sales, purchasing, inspection, testing, quality assurance or engineering specification of fasteners should attend.
