Welded aluminum plates were no option for this demanding industrial application. Achieved weight reduction was 80 % and 17 parts combined into one.
Hydraulic bolt tensioner -concept
Hydraulic bolt tensioners are used to achieve axial preload to bolt before tightening. Typically they consist dosen separate parts but Huld accepted the challenge to design it using only one.
Part was tested with over 100 bar pressure which caused M27 bolt (10.9) to lengthen over 2 mm.
Unique monitor holder was designed and delivered under 3 weeks from customer request.
Two parts, adjustable viewing anly, clean and intact outlook within fraction of the time the customer was used to.
Machining is accurate and AM is flexible. Why not to use both in same product?
This flow geometry was designed from a scratch and 3D-printed straight on top of premachined flange for technology leader in process industry.
- Cost: -30 %
- Parts: 7 to 2
- Functionality: -60 % powerloss
- Enabled modular product
Less waiting, on demand manufacturing & more competitive spare part business.
That’s what AM enables and Huld AM team delivers:
- Part screening
- Decrease part cost
- Develop digital spare part library
As we did with the IN718 nozzle ring, 316L hanger and tens of other spare parts.
Have you seen river with sharp edges and 90° turns? We either. Because it makes no sense.
Therefore our AM team optimize flow, size and weight of hydraulic manifolds resulting significantly less wasted energy.
By using less you truly get more!
