Worlifts – 40 Years of Excellence!

samOn the 18th October, just a few months before his 60th birthday, Sam Worley founded Worlifts and since that day, the company has been supplying lifting and associated equipment across all sectors of industry.

Wind Turbines – Why Evotorque2 Is a Must-Have Tool When Working in the Field

Are you happy that your electric torque tools could be giving vastly different results depending on the joint type?

Unfortunately, according to some research carried out by Norbar in 2010, that’s exactly the problem people are facing. The torque delivered to a hard joint could be more than double the torque that the same tool, with the same settings, would deliver to a soft joint with great potential to leave bolts under or over tightened and therefore potentially dangerous.

Of course, this means that in the maintenance of winds turbines both on and off-shore, the processes and tools used could be doing more harm (more…)
