Industry 4.0 is often spoken about. It is nothing but the digital transformation of assembly lines. However, the question remains what electric assembly tools can allow manufacturing, production and assembly lines to switch to automation and become smart? With majority of the assembly lines relying on pneumatic and manual wrenches, the question also remains that what type of tools can replace them? In this article, we will answer these questions and talk about the benefits of making the switch to Industry 4 revolution.

As per your application, improper bolted joints can have profound consequences. A single loose bolt can bring a whole production plant to a standstill and cost a company and pose a significant threat to safety.

Bolt loosening can occur for various reasons? Speaking in Broader Terms; Bolted joints typically loosen for one or more of the following reasons: design errors, flawed or damaged fasteners, corrosion, inappropriate preload, incorrect assembly, or heavy vibrational loads.

Any pressurized bolted joint assembly can loosen; creating a safety hazard.

Typically; an average size Oil & Gas refinery will contain approximately up to 1, 00,000 bolted joints, all of which have the potential to leak and create a safety hazard to the refinery, the environment and could lead to potential loss of life.

Bolted Joints are critical in all major industrial applications but quite often appropriate loading is miscalculated during the design to installation period and maintenance/ shutdown periods. Very often these bolts tend to loosen due to heavy vibrational impacts and loads.

The desired load needs to be applied on a bolted joint either through-bolt tensioners or torque wrenches during shutdown or servicing to tighten them and maintain joint integrity.

During maintenance; the same tool is used to tighten all bolts which is a tedious and time-consuming task; whereas bolt elongation measurement will save a lot of time.

Let me explain Why Bolt Elongation Measurement is critical for all industries:

Flange Facing

Flanges play a crucial role in major industries like pipelines, power, petrochemicals, oil & gas, and many more. Some of the flange maintenance operations include flange facing and controlled bolting to avoid leakages and mitigate losses. To ensure minimum flange downtime and production losses, a plant should be equipped with all the essential flange maintenance tools. In this article, we will talk about the essential tools to ensure flange maintenance operations are completed as quick as possible.

HiSTRONG Jacks

Hydraulic jacks are applicable in multiple industries as they offer convenient load-lifting solutions. These jacks work on Pascal’s principle of fluid mechanics where these tools generate large amounts of load to lower or elevate applications. In this article, we will elaborate more on the types and role of hydraulic cylinders and jacks used in different industries.

HYTORC Avanti

While we have already addressed the basics of torquing in our previous articles, the fundamentals of bolting is to stretch the bolt enough so that the nut could be loosened/tightened. Having said that, it is proven that combining torque with angle tightening methods can reduce the uncertainty in the bolt tightening process by reducing the dependency on torque control alone. In this article, we will talk about how torque and angle enhance the efficiency of bolting operations and the different types of torque wrenches that offer the same.

TensionPro Sonar

As bolts in major industrial applications tend to loosen due to impact from constant vibrations and load, bolt tensioners and torque wrenches are frequently used during shutdown to tighten them and maintain joint-integrity. However, it is an extremely tedious and time consuming process considering the fact that multiple bolts need to be torqued or tensioned with limited tensioners and torque wrench. In this article, we will explain how measuring bolt elongation with an ultrasonic bolt measurement device like the TensionPro Sonar can confirm if retightening of bolts is required.

Lion gun bolting

Impact wrenches are widely used in manufacturing industries. Apart from the known fact that a torque wrench offers better accuracy than an impact wrench, did you know that torque wrenches also ensures operator safety. In this article, we will talk the Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVs) caused by impact wrenches and conclude with a solution to the existing problem. We will address the repercussions and the impact of this syndrome in current times.
