Wind Energy Optimum functionality at the lowest possible dimensions: The entire product range offered by Holger Clasen GmbH & Co. KG, based in Hamburg, is designed to fulfil these requirements of assembly and service technicians in the wind energy industry. The company has redeveloped its AP 200 hydraulic battery-driven pump especially for mobile deployment. This pump is based on the tried and tested technology used in the ANP 450. Whereas the previous model was designed for both mobile and stationary use, the extent of functions and the performance offered by the AP 200 is completely tailored to mobile use. With dimensions of 380 × 205 × 240 mm and a weight of only 7.7 kg, the new pump can find its place in any service vehicle. A robust carrying handle on the top of the pump makes transport easier.

KG, is presenting its new cordless DA1 screwdriver. In comparison to the previous model, the DA, the new screwdriver features technical improvements, and at the same time the efficiency has been improved by more than 10 %. The DA1 is equipped with a brushless 18 V DC motor with a 4.0  Ah lithium-ion battery for an extended torque range of up to 3000 Nm. The new 15-stage potentiometer allows the necessary setting to be selected from a total of 60 predefined torque settings. The DA1 does not jam because it automatically unclamps after a screw has been tightened. It achieves a torque accuracy of +/- 4 %. Furthermore, the new DA1 has a 2-stage active LED battery capacity display that informs the user about battery charge levels in good time and automatically switches the device off if the required torque can no longer be achieved. The device is delivered with a rapid battery charger as well as a spare battery. Users are very happy about the optimal performance to-weight ratio because the new DA1 only weighs 5.1 kg.

Sales and Marketing Director Philip Brodey said: “Maintaining wind turbines is a pretty difficult task, especially as large numbers of bolts need tightening and often in difficult conditions.” So the company offers a wide range of precision tools for the wind industry, such as torque wrenches, multipliers and measuring equipment. These include: a comprehensive torque data management instrument, the T-Box XL and Torque Data Management Software; the NorTronic electronic torque wrench, designed to offer unsurpassed torque and angle control; the EvoTorque electronic torque tool, giving unprecedented joint control; the HandTorque Compact Series range of torque multipliers; the Pneutorque range of powered multipliers. Hall B7, Booth 316 Skylotec GmbH has been in the industrial fall protection business for more than 65 years. One of the company’s great strengths is the manufacture of high-quality belts. In co-operation with its in-house sewing shop, the Skylotec research and development team has repeatedly been able to produce new and innovative belts that fulfil the requirements of any scenario. One of the highlights at the trade fair is surely the reworked ARG 51 Formotion belt. It is fitted with click buckles for simple wearing of the belt. A chest eyelet, which is centred by four buckles and is positioned close to the body, increases wearer comfort and decreases the risk of fall-back. Skylotec designed the ARG 51 Formotion Wind especially for use on wind turbines. It is additionally fitted with a plastic sliding plate that protects the back, belt and the tower itself when climbing inside of wind turbines and shafts. 34 Sun & Wind Energy 8+9/2014
