The industrial sector is no exception when it comes to critical fastenings. Whilst our products may be mostly associated with use on wheel nuts, our experience has demonstrated that the loosening of nuts may occur in almost every application. The use of Checkpoint products can help clearly identify any loosening of nuts working under vibration or help prevent loosening in the first place.
The number of potential applications within industrial sites are extremely diverse. These applications include the steelwork supporting the factory building, overhead lifting equipment and large fixed and/or moving machinery.
Large manufacturing machinery with prolonged vibrations during operation can be particularly susceptible to loose nut problems. We have therefore developed indicators to form part of site maintenance procedures helping to make such machinery safer, easier to inspect and reducing both downtime and the resources needed for the on-going maintenance.
So far in this developing market, we have seen our products used in a range of applications such as on the machines involved in automotive, food manufacturing and medical sector as well as on the structural steelwork in manufacturing facilities and railway stations.
Please feel free to contact us if you require specific details of the products and systems that we manufacture for this industry.
