New RAD Pneumatic Tools

RAD 1500 TransducerAt Maxpro, we sell and rent a number of different torque tools, including products from RAD Torque Systems. Today we’re going to look at three new offerings from RAD: the RAD 1500 Transducer, the RAD 30 DX-2, and the 
B-Rad
Select.

RAD 1500 Transducer

The company bills this as a “complete calibration system,” able to calibrate between 75 and 1,500 ft/lbs. The system includes a static transducer, calibration stand, and a Surface tablet complete with RAD’s calibration software.

RAD’s Smart Transducers are classified to BS 7882:2008 as class 1 or better for the primary range (+/- 0.5 percent of reading from 20 to 100 percent of the full scale).

Every transducer is fully calibrated and is traceable to ISO 17025, which ensures the highest measurement of quality.

iStock_89262763_SMALL.jpgSafety and proper maintenance and care are important when using any tool, especially with powerful precision tools such as torque wrenches.

Here are a few tips on how to prevent torque wrench accidents and make sure your torque tools function properly:

  2. Inspect the wrench, and look for cracked/worn sockets. Take time to properly lubricate and replace parts that are worn.

  3. Make sure you heed the manufacturer’s instructions on torque direction, torque tighten/release cycles, torque pattern and sequence, proper force, and use of lubrication on fasteners.

  4. Never use handle extensions or other accessories unless the wrench manufacturer explicitly allows such modifications.
