Hydraulic Wrench saves customer £100,000 per year due to reduced labour

Correct implementation of the Hydraulic Wrench saves time and money

CHALLENGE
CHALLENGE
The company had 98 bolts which needed to be tightened and were currently using a manual wrench. Using the manual wrench meant they were operating at a low efficiency level, as well as this some of the bolts were difficult to access. A total of eight operators were required for the application, with it taking eight hours on one Yaw Bearing assembly.
