Critical Bolting Project Killers and Solutions to Avoid them
Many projects, whether industrial, commercial, or even recreational, require bolting solutions for their various machines and equipment. However, it’s not uncommon that some of these projects often face colossal challenges in their bolting applications because of one reason or the other. When these challenges are not tackled effectively and efficiently, these projects run the risk of missed deadlines, incurred costs, and safety issues.
So, what are some of these challenges and how can they be avoided?
Project downtime is one of the major challenges that can be an outright bolting project killer. An unforeseen amount of project downtime as a result of tool breakdown or replacement can lead to a project’s failure, especially when the project’s timeline is significantly short. Torque tool breakdown and replacements should be handled as fast as possible when need arises.
Lack of a back-up plan
It is inevitable to have bolting tool breakdowns when running a critical project such as wind turbine erection. As such, the project team should plan ahead and have a back-up plan in place for such scenarios. A distributor of torque wrenches and tightening tools will have replacements readily available for when you need them. The project team should also consider consulting bolting solutions experts that can provide them with tools for hire in case of break-downs. This prevents the project from stalling.
Use of sub-standard bolting tools
It is quite obvious that using sub-standard tools for your bolting applications project can leave you in deep trouble. The tools may break down often, deliver poor work results, and cost you more down the road because of frequent repairs and project downtime or failure.
Delays in tool repair or re-calibration
Delays are the enemy for many bolting projects because they not only cause a dent in your schedule but can also result in huge additional expenses. For bolting applications projects, delays should be avoided during torque tool repair and re-calibration. They should be undertaken as fast possible for the project to get right back on track.
Lack of, or poor preparation in a bolting applications project can lead to its failure too. A project team should have its bolting tools as well as back-up mechanisms ready from the start to avoid project downtime or failure down the road.
