The Advantages of E-RAD Torque Wrenches

The Advantages of E-RAD Torque WrenchesWind turbines require precision tools to operate, and E-RAD’s torque wrenches have become a favorite among professionals in the wind industry.

Faster than other traditional methods of bolting

Compared to hydraulic torque wrenches, E-RAD decreases tightening times by as much as 300 percent through the delivery of continuous and smooth torque.When looking for wind turbine bolting tools, look to E-RAD’s BLU Series pistol grip electronic torque wrenches.

Industrial Bolting Tool Applications for the Wind Turbine Industry

Wind_turbines.jpgThe wind turbine industry is going to take off over the next few decades.

According to projections from the U.S. Dept. of Energy, total wind power capacity will increase from 113.43 gigawatts in 2020 to 404.25 gigawatts by 2050.

And that’s good news for the bolting industry, whose precision torque tools are necessary to keep wind turbines turning. There are a lot of bolts on the average wind turbine – approximately 1,500 by some counts – which means the need for precise-yet-durable tools.

When to Use an Electric Torque Wrench

Electric Torque WrenchQuiet. Accurate. Recordable.

These are some of the terms that describe electric torque wrenches. They’re more accurate than pneumatic torque wrenches, with an accuracy range of plus or minus three percent.

And because they can be plugged in, electric torque wrenches will work any place where there’s a power source. They feature data recordability, meaning users are able to get a print-out detailing each job the wrench has completed.

This stall-type tool eliminates destructive hammering and strain to the user with their continuous flow of controlled torque. They are available in both Standard (ft/lbs) and Metric (Nm) models.
