June 6th – 8th, 2023 | Montrose, Colorado
The TEI Hollow Bar Installation School for 2023 was a huge success. Students from all over the globe travelled to Montrose, Colorado to learn from the leaders in the industry. Students learned bar testing and recording, bar sizes, capacities and how to mix and pump grout. The students also learned how to install hollow bars using TEI Rock Drills, famous drilling attachments. The school features a 2:1 student to teacher ratio and takes place at the TEI Rock Drills Factory in Colorado. This year saw a TEI first as Bjorn Ischebeck installed his first piece of hollow bar that his father invented with a MEM drilling attachment.
TEI also conducted some testing for the ADSC, DFI and FHWA to help continue the advancement of the hollow bar micro pile and to help further the industry with the testing. Look for the 2024 registration on the TEI website, the second week of January 2024 to secure a limited spot in the TEI Hollow Bar method school to be held in June 2024.
