Auburn Hills, MI — Sensor Products Inc. (in conjunction with Clemson EduPro, Inc.) will present a special “Fastening Technology and Bolt/Screw Joint Design” seminar Feb. 19-20, 2004, at the Amerisuites Hotel in Auburn Hills, Mich., near Detroit.

The two-day seminar was developed to give engineers and other technical personnel up-to-date specifications and a better understanding of the complexity of mechanical joining with fasteners.

Insufficient guidelines and outdated information are not adequately equipping engineers for real life design challenges. This can lead to catastrophic failures or costly over-designs. The seminar incorporates the most recent techniques and guidelines from both international and domestic engineering societies and research groups allowing the participant to immediately apply this knowledge.

Since most manufactured products involve the use of fasteners for assembly, this seminar is very beneficial to professionals working on design and development, maintenance, and procurement of fasteners and bolted interfaces. It will be of interest to those involved in design engineering, manufacturing and assembly, standardization, testing, maintenance, quality control, or otherwise involved with technical aspects of fasteners.


The seminar instructor is Bengt Blendulf, president and principal lecturer of Clemson EduPro. He is a founding member and currently serves as chairman of the Bolting Technology Council (ASTM). He has been in the metalworking field since 1962 and in the fastener industry since 1966. Educated in Sweden (mechanical engineering), he moved to the U.S. in 1974 to start a subsidiary for a leading European fastener manufacturer. He is the author of over 80 technical papers in addition to published articles related to fasteners and international standardization.
