We are pleased to announce that our PCT application from the international patent authorities has been approved. At the same time, we obtained the grant of this worldwide patent protection. After examining Bolt-Check, the international patent authorities found our invention innovative. This means that R&D Test Systems have a patent on the measuring method that calculates the length of pre-loaded bolts.

Bolt-Check can be used both when installing new bolts and when evaluating existing bolts as part of determining the lifespan of wind turbines. The ultrasonic measurement system helps you prevent issues that previous methods have not been able to. By combining ultrasound- and mechanical length, our method measure the length of the bolt without loosening them.

With the exact right clamping force and features such as full traceability of each bolt, you can schedule service and maintenance to prevent problems such as bolt fatigue and vibration loosening

We have helped our customers achieve and maintain a correct clamping forceĀ in their joints, which is essential for bolted joint integrity. This means that with our Bolt-Check system, you can reduce installation- and service costs, and at the same timeĀ minimise the risk of downtime of your wind turbines.
