I was desperately trying to secure a bolting contract from a major corporation, but there was a condition which I could not meet. The customer was requesting full, real-time bolt torqueing data acquisition. This posed a challenge as the technology to perform this feat seemingly did not exist. I almost gave up when Torq-Comm came to my rescue. Through my distributor, I was put in contact with Rick and Paul Iannello. Within 7 days I was using the Commander XT1000 data collection system with only on the phone training due to the time sensitivity. Since my computer knowledge is basic, this is a testimony indeed to the user-friendliness of the Torq-Comm system. My customer was thrilled beyond belief that I was recording real-time data, which they could watch live, accompanied by user defined traceability information on every bolt I torqued. Date, time, GPS location, operator, tool and many other parameters were tagged with the collected data. The system was easy to set up and use and the technical support is phenomenal. The job which would usually require three people can now easily be done with just two. Justification is a no-brainer. I can’t say enough good about this system and I believe it will revolutionize the bolt torqueing industry. Highly recommended if data acquisition is a necessity.
