Tighten By Elongation helps you get in control with your bolt joints. In cooperation with Kamp Innovation ApS and Flex Wind a new innovative method has been developed to control bolt joints in the most secure and efficient way.
Bolt joints are important in construction of wind turbines, and with the rapidly increasing turbine sizes the need of good bolt joints is getting even bigger.
The TBE method takes care of all the uncertainties on tightening bolts as variations on friction and tool calibration. All bolt joints are maintenance free and the method can be used on both installation and service.
The method is approved by DNV-GL and ready to bring your wind turbine in 100 % bolt control.
