All RAD torque guns, whether pneumatic, electric, or battery, are precision torque tools that require special expertise when repairing, maintaining, and/or calibrating these units. RAD torque tools are often used in critical bolting applications within various industries such as power generation, bridge and heavy construction, manufacturing, and more. It is important to properly service this equipment according to industry standards. The following are key questions to consider before you attempt to perform repairs on RAD torque tools:Read More
Tools exist to make work easier. Nails call for a claw hammer, and screws, a screwdriver. But when it comes to tightening and loosening fasteners, the best tool for the job is not as clear. Should you use a wrench, a ratchet, or any other torque tool in existence?
Every now and then, a tool manufacturer will take things up a notch and upgrade an existing tool. Manufacturers are constantly asking for feedback from the field on how to improve their torque tools. Industry professionals in mining, construction, power generation, and other critical industries want one thing: compact, durable tools that still maintain accuracy and high torque.
It’s for this reason that many of these professionals turn to the Canadian company RAD when it comes to high functioning torque tools; the B-RAD torque system being one of their most popular wrenches.Read More
A torque multiplier is a tool that provides a mechanical advantage when loosening or tightening nuts and bolts. They're used to increase the amount of applied torque, allowing workers to rapidly assemble or disassemble heavy machinery, vessels, and structures.
Torque multipliers are the epitome of "work smarter, not harder." They provide upgraded safety, greater precision, and higher levels of efficiency and productivity. Under normal circumstances, tightening and loosening heavy-duty fasteners is exhausting work.
A torque multiplier is an invaluable addition to your toolkit. It provides the extra power you need to turn bolts, nuts, and screws with ease. A small push can generate a high torque making it a better, safer alternative to extended handles or "cheater bars", which can result in a safety hazard if the tool were to fail while in use.Read More
New World Technologies set the industry standard when the E-RAD electric high-capacity torque wrench debuted in 2005. There was nothing like this tool on the market at that time: a calibrated, accurate, electric torque wrench with a capacity as high as 4,000 feet/pounds. Around the same time, the American wind energy business started to take off in a scalable way.Read More
