Multiple hydraulic nuts offer a quick and accurate method of tightening bolted joints including larger diameters.
Includes mechanisms to remove the hazard of over-stroking the hydraulic rams.
Bolt load is applied axially to the bolt. Inconsistencies such as friction, bending and lubricant are not a factor when using Hydraulic Nuts.
A customer had an issue with a nut on a cone crusher within the mining industry. These are known to have very long foundation bolts. The joint was under high and constant vibration, causing the nut to become loose and impact the stoppage on any operation, taking 4-6 hours daily to tighten the bolts. They needed a solution which would reduce the frequency of these stoppages, and make the tightening process quicker, so they could continue with their operations as soon as possible.
As a solution Atlas Copco offered M64 X 4 Hydraulic nuts with a special coupler extension to clear the long bolts. Atlas Copco helped install and train the operators to use the solution efficiently, meaning they could minimize their tightening time, improving their process. Overall they reduced their tightening time drastically down to 4 Hours per week, saving the company time and money. Utilising the hydraulic nut, their productivity and quality improved which encouraged them to roll out more hydraulic nuts across several of their applications.
The hydraulic nut is completely customizable, and can be manufactured to any specific application.
