M56 or M20, diameters from 2 to 6 m: assembly teams for wind turbines have to lift and rotate the different tower segments. Conventional tower anchor points are not flexible enough and clearly too heavy for assembly on the construction site. Several attachment points in different sizes often have to be used for the different tower sizes.
The new Vario-TAP fits all system types. The extra-wide slotted holes in combination with the sliding pressure plates with transverse bore make it possible to reproduce hole circles of different sizes. The use of an auxiliary crane or a forklift truck for assembly is no longer necessary, as the dead weight of the Vario-TAPs is a “portable” 30 kg. Available in versions from 17 to 60 t, the load capacity of the new Vario-TAPs is only limited by the maximum load capacity of the bolts. The insert side is marked in colour and also by labelling and thus unambiguous: RED = LEFT and GREEN = RIGHT. The extra-sturdy sliding pressure plates are available for all screw sizes from M20 to M56.
