Airbac technology results in retraction speeds up to 4.5 times faster than conventional spring return tensioners.
Airbac technology removes the need for manual return of the piston, therefore reducing operator effort and reducing the risk of injury.
The innovative patented technology in the Airbac tensioner is completely unique and generates significant cost savings in operations.
We had customers using spring assisted return tensioners where they particularly complained about springs losing their tension, in due course of time and needed some last bit of retracting to be manually done. This keeps increasing as time passes and leads to more effort as with manual piston return type tensioners. We listened to these customers and developed the Airbac patented technology.
The revolutionary Airbac tensioner from Atlas Copco offers one of the quickest and safest way of bolt tensioning. Process times are reduced, and the work becomes easier for the operator, whilst the unique design requires less frequent maintenance than conventional spring assisted tensioners.
