The many well known bolting insecurities resulted in expensive check-ups and re-tightening procedures. These have become common for high loaded bolts in (steel) constructions such as cranes and wind turbines. The challenge is to prevent these check-ups and re-tightening procedures by creating better insights in the bolt load.
BoltSafe bolt load cells measure the actual bolt load during assembly and over time. With a simple test the actual bolt load can now be determined, rather than assumed or guessed. This leads to enhanced safety, dependable joints, better control and improved cost benefit both during installation and throughout the joint’s service life.
