Hilti Smart Fasteners simplify identification of anchor installations

Company provides solution to documenting every anchor, screw and bolt

Hilti Smart Fasteners simplify identification of anchor installations

Hilti has launched connected fasteners, enabling unique identification and digital documentation on the jobsite.

The announcement was made at World of Concrete.  

Documenting every anchor, screw and bolt installed by hand can be time consuming and inefficient. Hilti's exclusive Tracefast technology provides specifiers and contractors with an easy-to-use, more productive solution. A data matrix code (DMC) makes every fastener uniquely identifiable and traceable. Using the Hilti Connect App, scan the code with a smart phone and view installed fastener details. Tracefast leverages IoT and provides a new level of control and digital access to relevant setting instructions, training and inspection documents and certifications. 

"As IoT (Internet of Things) transforms the construction industry, our product portfolio will continue to expand and shape possibilities for broader applications and services," said Muthu Manohar, Senior Director of Fastening & Protection at Hilti North America. "Connected anchors is another expansion of that value that only Hilti is positioned to provide. The anchor identification that we bring to the market now paves the way for increasing jobsite productivity across the application chain, helps provide traceability from design and ordering to installation, and eventually ‘smarter' products. Such technology is useful with the increasing trend of inspections on safety critical applications."

LOAD 60 TONS IN JUST FOUR PASSES WITH VOLVO

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.     

When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
