“Operators are looking for a cost effective solution to bolted joint safety and reliability,” says John Hirst, RotaBolt’s Engineering Manager. “It is encouraging to see that a technology driven approach to tension control is becoming more widespread. One of our biggest challenges remains one of education when there is a culture of tightening and fixing. We are delighted that across a variety of applications, operators now see that to achieve bolted joint reliability you have to install bolts to their correct design tension and accurately maintain that tension – that’s what our technology does.”
