Tightening services and consulting solutions to optimize the tightening strategy

Tightening Services

As experts in tightening techniques, we offer consulting solutions to optimize the tightening strategy from the design to the mass production phase, based on joint laboratory analysis performed by our tightening experts.

What is Tightening Services?

Atlas Copco's Tightening Services are a unique tightening consulting solution that optimizes your tightening strategy from design (R&D) to mass production with our tightening laboratory and experts.

What do I get?

We provide a tightening strategy evaluation in the design phase and an optimized tightening program for production. Plus, our tightening experts ensure a professional joint analysis.

What are the benefits?

Maximize your bolt performance, minimize the risk of joint failure, and stabilize your tightening process to protect joint integrity.

We know that planning a proper tightening strategy is critical for you, even from the design phase. The tightening process significantly influences the quality of the screw joint and different types of tools have different impact on the results. Let us support your entire product life-cycle from design to an optimized production, including personnel training.

 

As part of the Smart Connected Assembly solutions, our Tightening Services can:

  • Accelerate your business's sustainable growth
  • Shortening time-to-market
  • Increasing your productivity and first-time quality.

Right from the start

Tightening Development

Maximize your bolt performance and minimize the risk of joint failure. Our engineers can improve the integrity of your bolted joints and decrease the Time-To-Design, reducing warranty costs and improving first-time joint quality.

Stabilize your process

Tightening Optimization

Boost your joint quality and production with optimized programs. Decrease warranty, rework, and recall costs with the error-proofing setting, revealing the risk of cross threading, material and operational errors.

Protect your joint integrity

Tightening Quality

Reduce your investigation and resolution time in case of joint failure, unnecessary investment, rework, warranty, and recall costs. Increase your tightening quality and productivity in a timely and efficient manner.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is joint integrity?

Joint integrity means that a joint can be tightened to the engineering specification with a proper tightening process. This process can include correct clamp load, tightening torque, stable process, and failure detection method.

How should I secure joint integrity?

With Tightening Development, the comprehensive analysis of clamp load, torque, and angle will provide you with the most critical factors of the real-time tightening process, allowing you to compare the tightening result with your engineering design.  

How can I solve issues on specific joints?

Tightening Quality is the optimal solution if you have problems with specific joints. We measure the clamp load, torque, and the whole progression of the joint, including snug level, elastic, plastic area, and yield point. All the above is necessary to define the issue and provide a sufficient target torque specification or tightening process. If Tightening Technique cannot solve the problem, we highlight improvements in your design.
