One of our latest projects is a wireless breaking torque wrench system. Designed for use in production environments, it:

🔧 Reduces the risk of under or overtightening
🔧 Ensures full traceability, wirelessly
🔧 Increases production efficiency
🔧 Is compact and durable, for use in restricted spaces and a long tool life

The future is steer-by-wire.

This short video explains the importance of accurate belt measurement, with steer-by-wire systems.

Clavis | 18-Mar-21

Have you seen our wireless belt measurement unit?

The unit mounting plate uses an electromechanical hammer that forces the belt to oscillate.

The vibration of a belt is directly related to its tension — the higher the tension, the higher the vibration frequency.

What do you think?

It’s an ‘aye’ from me!

Not least because belt tension is vital in 3D printers, as I wrote here: https://bit.ly/2PA01yd

Clavis has developed a closed-loop system.

This measures, monitors and accurately controls the belt tension process from start to finish.

The FourierBMS closed-loop system is designed to automatically achieve and maintain the optimum target tension of a belt under tension.

The system is perfect for Industry 4.0 setups, or where no human input is needed.

Vibrations, drops, spills, extreme temperatures…

Even rough handling.

The Type 13 SR (Super Rugged) Belt Meter is designed to withstand them all.

If you are cold climate testing in the Arctic Circle or maintaining a battalion of armoured fighting vehicles like some of our customers, then the only meter to choose is the Type 13 SR.

Great resource here, from Stefan Hamacher.

This brings to mind Clavis’ own Type 4 Belt Frequency Meter with an optical sensor head.

It’s shown to outperform competing measurement systems on larger industrial belts, like the Gates Predator Belt.

There’s a reason why Clavis’s Gusto Titanium is used by automotive manufacturers worldwide.

The tough little 100 per cent aluminium box is designed for “error-proof” hose installation, and can safely release clamps in vehicles with a 98.8% True Positive rate.

This takes liability from the operator. Download the brochure here:

Do you need an extra pair of ears, or an extra pair of eyes? 

That’s a question our customers face when deciding which type of sensor head they need to measure their belt tension. Optical or acoustic sensor heads suit different environments.

In my latest blog, I explain which could be best for you.

What can you achieve in 0.3 seconds?

In that time, the Clavis Gusto tool can determine whether or not a POPP clamp is successfully closed. It offers completely traceable error proofing, without slowing down production.
