Torque quality is of paramount importance in the wind industry. A loose or broken bolt can cause a catastrophic error, one that could cost millions of dollars, or even worse, result in serious injury. Torque quality has always been difficult to achieve because of the hard-to-access nature of the bolts being assembled.
In factories, huge bolt patterns and unique applications are a challenge. In field operations, the difficulty is even greater, with confined spaces making access a major challenge.
The Tensor Revo from Atlas Copco provides a solution in both environments. In wind energy manufacturing facilities, the standard Tensor Revo tool provides a handheld tool that is fast and responsive to all of the different operations needed to build complete systems.
In field operations, the Tensor Revo HA prioritizes access: the HA does stand for “high access” after all! Best of all, both the Revo and Revo HA models offer advanced error-proofing to ensure every bolt is torqued correctly and data collection for a record of all of the bolts torqued, either when a product is originally built, when it is installed, or when it is maintained in the field.
Tensor Revo tools can be demonstrated on-site.
