Steel connections are built up from several components from which the weakest one defines the capacity. There could be many connection configurations which are proper for our design situation, but how can we find the most economic one or which pass the design and/or the manufacturing requirements.
The development of MasterSeries is always focused on the needs of our customers. We get a lot of enhancement ideas, from which we select the most popular. One of the enhancements, which is already implemented is the shop welded moment connection.
We are only weeks away from the launch of MasterSeries 2019, and we want to share with you another exciting connection enhancement to look forward to. MasterKey: Moment Connections 2019 is coming with a new connection type.
Bolted end-plate moment connections are widely used in steel structures. The most common joint arrangement has two bolts in each row, but what can we do if we require greater resistance and the lower bolt rows are not providing enough additional capacity?
Using MasterSeries Connection Design as an add-on module for MasterFrame or MasterPort has several great advantages.
Automatic generation of connection detail drawings accelerates your design process, saving you time, and accurately conveys your design to the fabricator.
