bondura® is the SMART choice for movable bridges
A movable bridge is a bridge that moves to allow passage for boats or barges. The advantage lower cost, due to the absence of high piers and long approaches.
There are many types of movable bridges. Common for most of them is that the joints are exposed to very heavy loads. Failure in these critical positions will cause traffic jams and can, depending on installation location, have dramatic effect.
"Down time caused by bolt failures and extensive play have been reduced to a minimum on equipment equipped with bondura bolts"
Geir Johnny Eide, Technical Superintendent Stena Don
bondura® expanding pins can be installed in any types of movable bridges, like drawbridge, bascule, folding, and more
bondura® expanding pins are certified and approved for replacing existing pins.
bondura® products will reduce your downtime and maintenance cost by ensuring 360 deg. wedge force and a solid 180 deg. distribution of the load within the supports of the pivot joint. Maintenance on the supports are minimized by eliminating the need to line bore. In addition, risk of cracks forming in the support will be reduced, extending the equipment life cycle.
Bondura Technology AS also offer a unique technical solution that will ensure that the bearings will operate perfectly at all times. With our DUAL option installed, the bearing will not rotate on the pin, but rather between inner and outer race.
