Seven steps to choosing the most suitable bolting tool for your business

Selecting the most suitable bolting solution

Seven steps to choosing the most suitable bolting tool for your business

Did you know that talking to a specialist is vital to finding the right solution for your business? Check out the following article for tips on how to improve your quality and productivity.

It is often necessary to introduce a concept change so that your business can grow and evolve. One way of doing this is to show how important it is to have a high torque or controlled tensioning system that will ensure quality and productivity within the production process. However, it isn't always necessary to have the most sophisticated or expensive bolting tool for your industrial process. Sometimes though, the cheapest models can lack quality. So what's the best solution? Below are seven factors that should always be considered while choosing a bolting tool with the support of technical consultants.

1) What kind of joint do you have?

The first thing to consider is what is the torque or load required in order to achieve the right clamp force.

2) Accessibility

Second step is to assess physical or spatial restraints to the size of the torque wrenches or tensioner.

3) Resources

Check available power soucre for tool operation. i.e: whether there is electricity or compressed air available. 

4) Investment opportunities

Cost issues are essential and it is therefore necessary to decide how much you are willing to invest in equipment.

5) Traceability

Another essential factor is to consider whether process monitoring, data collection or other documentation are required for the process.

6) Safety

Safety is always number one priority. This is why it is essential to analyze the conditions of the tool or system so as to avoid any risk or harm. 

7) Ergonomics

Ergonomics - which looks at operator comfort in the workplace, is also essential to safety in the workplace. It is therefore necessary to gage the weight of the tool, its positioning, usage and installation. 

Conclusion

Choosing the right bolting solution is not always easy, but by following the above simple steps, will help you ensure that you have considered all the important factors. If you do not know some of the information required, please ask your Atlas Copco representative who will be happy to help you by providing expert advice and guidance.
