[CASE STUDY] Pipelines and Torque Tools

Pipeline workers need to know they have tools that are dependable and accurate.
An error in their work could mean a disruption in the energy supply, or worse, some sort of environmental disaster.

The rise of the natural gas drilling industry in Pennsylvania has provided Maxpro with the opportunity to work on various pipeline projects. Maxpro President Tom Macey says these projects typically require pneumatic torque wrenches, because there are a lot of bolting & critical torque requirements involved.

Industrial Bolting Tool Applications for the Wind Turbine Industry

Wind_turbines.jpgThe wind turbine industry is going to take off over the next few decades.

According to projections from the U.S. Dept. of Energy, total wind power capacity will increase from 113.43 gigawatts in 2020 to 404.25 gigawatts by 2050.

And that’s good news for the bolting industry, whose precision torque tools are necessary to keep wind turbines turning. There are a lot of bolts on the average wind turbine – approximately 1,500 by some counts – which means the need for precise-yet-durable tools.
