hello - i was wondering if there was a different torque value for joining 2 plates which are at a temperature of 150 degrees each or when the 2 plates are at room temperature - i believe there is but i cant seem to find what the variation or conversion is per unit of increase in temperature - we have a platen in a plastics machine that has worked loose & the customer wants to tighten it back up w/o shutting down the machine & letting it cool - any info would be greatly appreciated - thank you
