Bolted joints on steel and bridge constructions

Bolted joints in general steel constructions like bridges or ropeways are tightened and loosened with ITH bolting tools. Also the Eiffel Tower in Paris was tightened with the electric nut runner EDS digital 150. Further applications include:

  • Bolted joints of steel bridges (like the Oresund bridge connecting Denmark and Sweden, Bosporus Bridge in Istanbul, Turkey, Katwyck Bridge in Hamburg, Germany)
  • Bolted connections of steel structures (for example roof constructions like for the football Stadium Lille Métropole in Lille, France)
  • Rope ways
