ITW Introduces TruSpec Anchor Calculator

Software simplifies anchor selection and specification process.

ITW's new Truspec anchor software calculates connections so architects and engineers can design in accordance with ACI 318 appendix D.

The free software design implements real-time 3D graphics, color-coded results and value displays in US customary or metric units in a matter of minutes.

Users can predict mode of failure for anchor connections, recommend the most efficient anchoring size and method, and specify anchoring methods to achieve a desired failure mode.

Product datasheets, photos, ICC-ES evaluation reports and specification packages are all included in the Truspec anchor calculation software package. The software also supports architects and engineers by generating printed or PDF versions of anchor connection data, detailed calculations for anchor connection design, test reports and specification packages.
