The MCI 900 Transient Recorder Analyzer ultrasonic torque-tension test equipment, is a central feature in the REMINC test lab located in Middletown, RI. This equipment provides the ability to analyze joints without the need to modify the application components. Conventional joint testing using torque angle transducers and load cells or force washers can also be done using the MCI 900 system.

Only 15% of the total "in-place cost" of fastening is the cost of the screw or bolt. The TAPTITE family of thread rolling screws and bolts lower the remaining 85% cost. i.e. the cost of pre-tapping the hole and other tapping related costs. We refer to this cost as the "Big 85" The use of TAPTITE® products lowers the "Big 85"!
