Product Technology Spotlight

The DNA

Our DTI-Nut-Assembly (DNA) is a patented tensioning device that attaches a hex nut to its precisely matched load-indicating DTI.  In this assembly, a cumbersome— especially at hundreds of feet off the ground—four-piece assembly (nut, DTI, hardened washer and bolt) is simplified into an ergonomically sound and much safer two-piece assembly.  The DNA’s engineered geometry allows for the DTI to be fixed directly under the nut-and-washer assembly with superior tightening results—and without highly controlled lubricity.  

  

Unlike torque-based methods, the DNA utilizes the DTI’s friction-reducing properties, lowering the required torque force and removing the need for highly controlled lubricity.  The result is a stream-lined, efficient device with cost-savings in transport, handling, tightening, and assembly—and no “fiddle factor."

High accuracy pplied clamping force is the best assurance that a joint will not loosen over time, and our DNA provides exactly that.
