Quicktorc 

With the Quicktorc solution, the industry 4.0 standard is entering the traditional tool maker industry. Combining an innovative new mechanical tool with information technology and a disruptive new business model, we have created the 3-step rocket to take the industry to the next level.

The Quicktorc solution reduces time consumption by 75% compared to the methods used by industry today and provides major cost savings in building, maintenance and audits of industrial plants.

Quicktorc is not “just another piece of hardware” but an integreated solution to change a traditional business.

The intelligent solution

The intelligent solution

Cost savings in maintenance

The Quicktorc tool have automated the four steps procedure used by existing tools.

A MCU combined with actuators and sensors, controls the procedure and secure a fast and accurate result every time. Without the possible human errors on today`s tools.
The tool is designed with a changeable insert to cover a range of bolt and nut dimensions.
In the future the product range will be expanded to cover a large range of different sizes.

The game changer

Step in to the industry 4.0 world in piping industry

Tensioning as a Service
Pay for the work done – without the investment in tools.

With the detailed level of data recorded, it`s possible to support a new business model we call “Tensioning as a Service” TaaS.

Our ambition is to provide a ecosystem with tool rental and cloud access as an integrated packet.

Digitalized  and connected

Documentation of audits and maintenance is important to secure operation and environment. With the Quicktorc solution, you will be able to get this in real time.

With the built-in sensors, the hole tensioning process is recorded and stored. With the today’s technology, it`s possibility to upload these data to a cloud solution in real time, and enables a totally new way to document every bolt tensioning on every flange.
This Industry 4.0 solution will be integrated with a cloud solution and the data sets will be accessible on several different platform. This represents a radical improvement in quality and maintenance management for the plant owners and leads to improved cost-effectiveness.

Patented technology

Ongoing prosesses in 23 countries. Covering all major markets.

Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) is secured in major markets

Since the start, the focus has been on securing the intellectual property rights (IPR) in main markets. The Norwegian patent was granted on 23.12.2019. At the end of 2021, Quicktorc have ongoing national validation processes in 22 countries.
The international patent was applied for through The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) and the patent was granted in June 2020. National validation is ongoing in major markets at the American continent with countries as USA, Canada and Brazil. In Asia with countries as China and Japan among others.
European patent was granted in September 2021 and national validation is ongoing in 12 countries. These countries cover the main players in chemical industry and oil & gas industry.

The idea

The idea for the tool Quicktorc was sown by a nestor in piping in Norway in connection with the work with Quickflange.

The existing methods for working and tightening bolts are very time and costly. If that process could be simplified without compromising on the quality standards established in the various industries, it would be a major step forward.

The serial inventoer Hilberg Karoliussen never completely let go of that challenge and in the summer of 2018, the tool was ready to be applied for a patent. In this connection, the company Patentec Quickdrive As was established and the rights to the invention were transferred to the newly established company. The company changed its name in 2021 to Quicktorc.

In the first phase, priority has been given to clarifying the patent situation and a solid foundation has now been established around IPR. Norwegian, European and global patent applications have been completed and patents have been granted in all areas. At the beginning of 2022, there are processes that will lead to national validation in 22 countries in addition to the Norwegian patent that was granted in December 2019.

Throughout 2021, the company has done considerable work in digitizing the analog design and developing a good business model for the entire digital universe Quicktorc will offer. With a solid patent situation, a digitized data capture and a disruptive business model, we have reached the point where we want to realize the great potential that lies in the company’s technology. On this journey, we welcome both financial and industrial partners.
