  • Title:
    Dutch company offers technology for handheld device for measuring the tension in pre-stressed cables
  • Start date:
    11 mei 2018
  • End date:
    15 mei 2019
  • Summary:
    A Dutch company offers an efficient technology to measure tension in pre-stressed cables contactless that can be used primarily in the concrete industry to improve efficiency. The method consists of several components that are ready for demonstration. The company is looking for a company interested to bring this technology to the market, there is a market demand for the system. The proposed type of collaboration is a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
  • Description:
    The Dutch company has developed a system to rapidly measure tension in pre-stressed clean cables. It can be used to check larger amounts of cables in concrete industry but also other applications can be thought of where quick measurement is required to control the tension in an efficient way.

    The system consists of several parts:

    Handheld measurement device
    The portable measurement device can be carried in a box. After softly touching the cable to make it ‘swing’, the tool can be held at a small distance of about 10 mm from the cable and measures and displays the value of tension in the cable in a few seconds.

    Cable supports
    Longer cables have to be supported to be measured. Part of the system are a special height adjustable crane and a handheld tool to lift the cable.

    Length measurement tool
    Part of the tension measurement procedure is the measurement of the length of the cable. A laser telemeter to measure the distance is part of the system.

    Steady calibration construction
    To calibrate the measuring device a steady certified construction is provided.

    Some prototypes have already been sold and delivered. There is also some interest from new clients for buying the devices.
    However, the management concluded that there is insufficient strategic fit with their current business.
    Therefore the owner of the company is looking for companies interested in buying this technology to extend for example their product range of measurement tools. The system is ready to take into production and there is a market demand for the system. The owner can give all the support needed but aims to transfer all knowledge and finish his activities in this field. The proposed type of collaboration is a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Partner Sought
  • Type of Partnership Considered:
    Commercial agreement with technical assistance
  • Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:

    The devices are ready to take into production. Some final steps have to be taken like searching for suppliers for purchasing of the parts and assembling of the product. Therefore a company familiar with these procedures is looked for to take care of these activities. The proposed type of collaboration is a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
