Houston-based Titan Technologies International Inc., a bolting technologies firm, has introduced the SmartTite auto cycle hydraulic wrench pump tensioning system, which is designed to save time, increase safety, reduce operator fatigue and improve the wind turbine tower erection bolting process.

The Titan SmartTite uses a sensor within the hydraulic torque wrench that determines when the tool is at the end of its stroke, the company explains. The sensor is in communication with a processor within the hydraulic torque wrench pump. When the tool is performing the tightening process, the sensor tells the pump when to retract the tool piston and make a successive stroke. The operator simply depresses a button, and the tool cycles until the nut is tightened to a predetermined torque.

The result is faster tightening of the nuts, resulting in time savings and integral joint make-up with minimal skill level needed, Titan Technologies says.
