Tentec Supplies Bolt Tensioning Tools to Wind Turbine Gearbox Manufacturer
Tentec's bolt tensioning system for wind turbines has been purchased by wind turbine gearbox manufacturer, ZF INdustries, for use in its USA manufacturing plant.
West Midlands (I-Newswire) March 6, 2013 - A new wind turbine gearbox manufacturing plant in Gainesville, Georgia has purchased a Tentec M42 WTB bolt tensioner system for its production facility. ZF Industries opened its new factory in 2012 and manufactures the Atlas 1 wind turbine gearbox for Vestas.
The Tentec M42 Wind Turbine Tensioners provide the production engineers at the plant with the ability to quickly and accurately carry out bolting on the gearbox casings. Special lifting harnesses have been design to further speed up the operation as there are 60 bolts to be tensioned on each individual gearbox.
In addition to spring returned piston which greatly speeds up the operation, the other main advantage of the Tentec tools is that they are fitted with a spring-loaded device. This automatically engages the tensioner drive socket with the hexagon nut so the operation is completely transparent to the user and no time is wasted aligning the tensioner with the nut.
Tentec has recently produced new product literature that features these tensioners and this can be obtained by emailing Tentec at email@example.com or it can be downloaded from the website at http://www.tentec.net/wtb-datasheet.php
