An Army mechanic, a wind turbine worker and a construction foreman sit down to talk about their jobs. Even though they work in different fields, they discover they all have something in common: the need for accurate, durable torque tools. It’s for this reason that so many professionals in these critical industries choose torque tools from the Canadian company RAD, makers of the RAD gun.Read More
Wind Turbine Torque Tools and Why You Need Them
Most, if not all, machinery needs maintenance at some point in time, and wind turbines are no different. A big part of maintenance involves taking off nuts and bolts and re-attaching them during the assembly stage. This is when torque settings become especially important. Bolts need to be tightened according to a predetermined torque setting to ensure the smooth and safe running of the machine. The manufacturer determines torque settings.
When we look back at previous posts, we see that Battery Torque Wrenches are among the most popular items that we sell. It makes sense for this blog to share our latest updates about the Battery Torque Wrenches. We’re going to discuss the differences between B-RAD Select BL and B-RAD Select BL Offset. This blog will get into detail about what the perks and benefits of each and why they still are popular.Read More
Air travel is the safest form of transportation today, and one of the main reasons can be attributed to the expertise of aircraft mechanics and engineers as well as the reliability of the tools that enable them to work safely and efficiently. Planes are made up of thousands of parts held together with tens of thousands of bolts or fasteners. Because aircrafts must withstand varying degrees of altitude, speed, and temperature on a daily basis, each bolt must be tightened with a very precise amount of torque.
High-precision manual torque wrenches are capable of exerting a very precise, preset amount of torque to a fastener, so they are an important tool in an aircraft mechanic's inventory. Because accuracy is so important when it comes to aircraft maintenance, it is crucial that these wrenches are calibrated on a regular basis. In this post, we’ll review two common high-precision manual torque tools for aircraft mechanics and the importance of maintaining them with an accredited calibration institute.Read More
