TensionPro has teamed up with Sedwell Ltd to promote and develop new applications for the InterBolt™ remote bolt load monitoring technology and software systems. 

Sedwell Ltd, based in Bury St Edmunds, UK, has developed an integrated bolt load monitoring system. The technology provides real-time bolt load measurements for proof of bolt loads during installation and long term monitoring. It has an innovative miniature embedded sensing element which features a long-life battery and long-range wireless communications. 

Commented Dave Metzger, Managing Director: “We are very excited by the InterBolt™ partnership. We have a global customer base that will benefit from the implementation of smarter bolting technology such as this. With InterBolt™ we can manage the long-term integrity of bolts whilst in service. This fits well with our excellent bolt tensioning solutions for tightening bolts.  The InterBolt™ software systems add to our existing tensioner control systems to give customers added value with full data control of the bolt tightening process. With the Sedwell team we have a solutions-based approach that will add real benefit to our customers in many market sectors, not least our growing involvement with offshore wind”. 

Added Sedwell Managing Director, Dr Jack Bryan Hughleigh: “The team at TensionPro have the technical and commercial experience to help us deliver our solutions to a wider customer base. Their extensive application and bolting knowledge will add much to the commercial development of our products, as we look to discover new markets and applications.”
