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.
