[CASE STUDY] E-RAD Torque Equipment and the Wind Turbine Industry

03/21/2017 07:24 AM

When building a wind turbine, one of the factors crews must contend with is…wind. There’s a term for it in the industry: “getting winded out.” When it happens, crews need to work quickly to make up for lost time.Turbines are naturally built in places that get a lot of wind, but if conditions get too […]

Wind Turbine Maintenance Requires Calibrated Tools

02/10/2017 08:39 AM

Like any piece of machinery, a wind turbine can only do its job with proper maintenance. Vibration and movement put stress on the turbine, which means the bolts holding them together must be recalibrated and retightened frequently. It takes a lot of bolts to keep a wind turbine turning – roughly 1,500 per some estimates […]
