Tech Talk: KRABO – Sensorized IoT bolts for monitoring bolted joints

18th June 2024 – 5:00 PM
Politecnico di Torino – Maxwell Room

Please, remember that registration is required to attend the event.

KRABO technology transforms standard bolts into internet-connected fasteners for remotely surveying bolted joints in critical infrastructures. These innovative bolts are based on sensors that are fully integrated into the bolts, able to measure the clamp load and send the data wirelessly to the cloud at any given second. KRABO® bolts are a real alternative to standard bolts. The technology monitors the bolted joint at any time and identifies issues before they become a problem. These predictive maintenance capabilities help enhance safety and reduce maintenance costs. There are countless applications for this technology: buildings, roads, railways, vehicles, machines, and other infrastructure scenarios where safety is crucial. The talk will introduce KRABO® Networking Bolts, showing an example of successful R&D activities and how the research is performed in the industry world.
