Atlas Copco Bolt Tightening Solutions, a division of Atlas Copco, a manufacturer of industrial tools and equipment with multiple branches in North and South America, has launched a new flange management system, iFMS. The iFMS is a modular, software-based management system that encompasses planning, data capture, analysis, inspection-related reporting, maintenance and bolted joint and pipework testing capabilities.
The iFMS has been developed for operators that wish to manage their assets throughout the construction, commissioning, shutdown, turnarounds and routine maintenance phases. The system comes with a safe hand-held tablet, which can be used in the field to gather and report information that is automatically uploaded to the system. The software contains an established database of flange, connector and gasket types, as well as bolt materials.
