We’ve broken another record! The world’s largest DTI SmartBolts have been recently manufactured.
Thanks to all our visitors who helped make this year’s Manufacturing Day another success! We had a great time showing our visitors our lean manufacturing process and sharing sneak previews of upcoming SmartBolts technology. Manufacturing in Maryland is strong and getting stronger.
Electrical busway is a modular power distribution product commonly used in commercial environments. Busway provides an efficient, reliable, flexible and safe method of providing electricity throughout a facility (think of busway as wire and conduit on steroids).
Update: On May 11, 2017, the Maryland Public Service Commission awarded offshore wind renewable energy credits to two projects to be built off the coast of Maryland. U.S. Wind, Inc. and Skipjack Offshore Energy, LLC are approved to construct 368 megawatts of capacity, together yielding over $1.8 billion of in-state spending.
If you work in a facility like a Data Center there’s a good chance it relies on overhead electrical busway to keep the power flowing 24/7. And for the past two decades, many of the world’s largest producers of busway have used SmartBolts to keep critical bridge joints properly tightened. Achieving proper bridge joint bolt […]
We just released a PDF that gives a quick overview of SmartBolts. Learn some basic facts about how SmartBolts are based on measuring tension — not torque. See examples of SmartBolts on the job worldwide helping all kinds of industries keep production up and running, saving on inspection time and maintenance costs, and helping to […]
Last week, CEO, Charles Popenoe, III and Chief Engineer, Chris Bunai visited Agrico Sales in New Orleans to oversee the installation of our heavy-duty SmartBolts. Agrico ordered hundreds of two inch diameter bolts between 14 and 16 ¼ inches long which will be on the job holding the massive slewing bearings together — the most […]
Our very own Chief Engineer, Christopher Bunai, wrote An Introduction to Lean Bolting that has been published in Machine Design. In the article, Chris explains the Seven Bolting Wastes which are an adaptation of the Seven Manufacturing Wastes within lean manufacturing. The following is an abstract of the article: Lean manufacturing is an outgrowth of the Toyota […]
Imagine going to work one morning and having to crawl into a 2-foot wide gap under a 37 ton machine to tighten 50 bolts whether they needed tightening or not! That’s not the way anyone wants to start off their day, but unfortunately for the underground team at the Ojibway salt mine, this was the ugly […]
