Still Going Strong After 5 Years of Wind Tower Maintenance 

Severe, remote environments are tough on even the toughest tools.

It is necessary for tools to not only be durable, but consistently sustain longterm reliability and certification.

AcraDyne supplied a 4,200 Nm HT bolting tool, which was put into service in 2014 for repeated heavy-duty use. Still going strong after 5 years and more than 33,700 cycles, AcraDyne's bolting tool proves that its total cost of ownership is the lowest in the industry.

Superior Durability Begins with Better Tool Design

AcraDyne's tools are Made Tough and Made in the USA.

This case study is a compliation of several projects here in the USA.

From a 4,200 Nm HT bolting tool still going strong after 5 years in wind maintenance to an automotive assembly line solution to increase the speed of critical fastening, AcraDyne works with customers to provide custom solutions that meet every industries needs.

Fast Track To High Torque: One Hour Instead of Six 

The application involved tightening more than 200 bolts in a confined space. Tool ergonomics and speed were imperative to complete the job quickly and safely. Hydraulic tools were heavy, cumbersome, slow, and had not supplied the needed torque accuracy for the customer. 

AcraDyne supplied a high-torque DC angle tool that can complete in an hour what it takes hydraulic tools 6 hours to complete. The speed of completion increased by 500%.

Ultimate Operator Safety for Lifting Large Bolting Tools 

The design needed to be simple and lightweight, yet robust enough to be transported and used in a challenging environment.

Trying to maneuver, position, and operate tools in a wind tower can be awkward, non-ergonomic, and even dangerous.

AcraDyne worked jointly with the customer to develop a custom solution within a tight budget and short timeframe. AcraDyne designed the portable, innovative XD Lift Assist with input directly from the customer.

In addition to providing a solution that met all of the customer's needs, AcraDyne also provided how-to videos, user manuals, and instruction on how to quickly assembly and disassembly the unit.

The XD Lift Assist surpassed the customer's expectations and is now used in projects across Mexico and South America.
