First wind turbine with coded sensor bolts in operation

WindForce GmbH, Bremerhaven, took the first plant with data matrix coded sensor bolts on line last month. Data matrix bar code bolts with the Intellifast load measurement transducer make the assembly and inspection processes of bolted joints quick, easy, and foolproof.
The information stored on the bolts (identification number and ultrasonic parameters) now allows the operator to measure control the load in any bolts in seconds without any complicated data management requirements. During assembly, the information stored in the code on the bolts is used for tightening followed by the precise adjustment of the target clamp load. This is another major step in the economical condition monitoring and maintenance of bolts.

For the coding of transducerised (sensor) bolts Intellifast uses the digifast®-technology and has signed a license agreement with Schrauben Betzer GmbH, Lüdenscheid.
