FITS YOUR PROCESS
BUILT TO LAST
- Minimize unplanned maintenance
- Reduce operating costs
- Improve overall productivity
All mining operations, whether it’s the extraction of metals, minerals or liquids, require heavy-duty machinery and components to operate safely and efficiently. That’s why we provide bolts strong enough to stand up to the toughest earth-moving requirements. Our goal is for our customers to remain productive by supplying them with the highest-strength, highest-quality bolts.
In the mining and construction industries, heavy equipment is needed to perform tough tasks. It must be built from the strongest, most reliable components, because the failure of even a single bolt can bring operations to a halt.
When you’re in a manufacturing industry, you have to be sure that your equipment is running smoothly and that your workforce is safe in order to remain competitive and efficient. You must be able to depend on consistently secure bolted connections.
Factories are increasingly complex and constant innovation is required to remain competitive. The most critical manufacturing processes often depend on consistently secure bolted connections. When efficiency is paramount, our customers rely on SmartBolts to reduce the downtime of essential equipment and machinery and keep the workforce safe.
Power generation uses all types of technology to produce electricity. Most of the world’s electricity comes from power plants that use a turbine, a machine that harnesses the energy of fluid – wind, water, steam or gas – and converts it into useful work.
Once power is generated, it needs to be transmitted to individual consumers, the final stage in the delivery of electricity. This process requires managing the voltage of electrical current both safely and reliably. Hundreds of thousands of end users rely on power distribution companies to get their electricity, and those companies in turn rely on SmartBolts to supply the necessary fastening solutions.
Infrastructure is the glue that holds a small community or an entire country together. Without it, nothing would function. That explains why companies that supply infrastructure can’t take any chances when it comes to the largest, and smallest, details.
The purpose of machine building is to provide the highly efficient machines and equipment that the world runs on. Practically everything, from productivity and progress to the standard of living, relies on machines that make machines.
Measure What Matters
Establishing and maintaining a specific amount of clamp force is the primary goal of bolting. Clamp force is what keeps a bolted connection tight and secure. As a SmartBolt DTI is tightened, tension forces it to stretch, and the visual indicator changes color to represent the amount of tension in real-time. “Torque” is simply a measurement of the twisting force required to spin the nut up along the threads of a bolt, whereas “Tension” is the stretch or elongation of a bolt that provides the clamping force of a joint.
Using no batteries or moving parts, SmartBolts’ built-in, color-coded visual tension indicator will continuously monitor the bolt’s tension to ensure the safest, most reliable connection possible.
