Prompt conversion, optimal deployment

To date, the requirements of VDI/VDE 2862 have applied only to tightening applications with the automotive industry. However, an extension of these higher safety regulations for machinery and plant construction is already in progress.

Electric tightening systems from Bosch Rexroth already meet these requirements, therefore you are prepared for the future.

Safety critical tightening applications

Failure of a safety critical joint could endanger health or cause loss of life. For this reason redundant monitoring and direct measurement of the tightening process is required. Every fastening cycle must be documented.

Function critical tightening applications

Failure of function critical joints result in product failure. In these cases direct measurement in combination with indirect measurement of monitoring and control is required. Every fastening cycle must be documented.

Non critical tightening applications

These applications are all cases not considered safety or function critical. Here it is permissible to use an indirect measurement of the fastening process.
