The Technofast Team
Our team is a unique collection of dedicated individuals who strive to deliver the best solutions every day. We are extremely fortunate that 90 per cent of our team has been working together for over ten years.
We aren’t just a team, we’re family.
We’re the team committed to delivering innovative and economical bolt tensioning solutions for our customers’ most demanding applications.
We improve efficiency, accuracy, and safety on-site. Our leading product, our hydraulic bolt tensioner is the standard for Technofast: innovative design that improves workflow, saves time and money, and transforms how you work.
Innovative Hydraulic & Bolt Tensioning Solutions
With designs based on the utilisation of simple hydraulic power, our team provides innovative and cost-effective solutions for the tensioning of bolts and shafts to industries like mining, quarrying, power generation chemical plants, and oil and gas processing. The direct tension applied by hydraulic power to achieve those required high forces ensures that applications are completed efficiently, effectively, economically and safely.
Our team is proud to have been providing our bolting and tensioning solutions for almost 30 years now. Working closely with our user groups, we have striven to develop a wide range of products that improve hydraulic tensioning. It is important to us that these are both affordable and practical.
A Team of Engineers Creating Unique Solutions
While we do have a wide range of off-the-shelf equipment, our team is highly experienced in conceptualising unique and bespoke bolt tensioners for specific applications with individual requirements. We’ll create and 3D model your individual concept and develop a smart tool that saves you labour and money, increases safety, and improves your team’s experience at work.
We’re also very well equipped to provide engineering services to assist our customers. Using the latest in 3D drafting, Finite Element Analysis and modelling software, we can create specialty items. These include replacement parts and special build solutions such as adjustable sheaves for steel mills and cable suspension systems for mining draglines.
