Design to cost

Optimization of current design

  • Save money redesigning the bolted joint.
  • Save money in exploitation with an improved re-tightening and load monitoring.

Erreka advocates a life cost approach, taking into account both CAPEX and OPEX

A whole work involving the designers, construction and exploitation services permit us to give the best cost-saving solution.

Optimization starting from the development

Erreka develops cost reduction strategies during development projects:

  • Strategy of the reduction of the number of bolted joints with a better knowledge of assembled element.
  • Strategy of the zero maintenance in the bolted joints with an accurate tightening.

Our goal is not only to reduce the cost of the bolted joint, but also the costs in the structures or machines in close proximity, which are usually much more expensive than the bolted joint itself.
