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
If you’ve been reading our blog lately, you’ll have noticed we’ve been talking quite a bit about the RAD gun from RAD tool.
These are among the best tools on the market, but like any high-end tool, a RAD gun will only function with proper care and maintenance.
Part of that maintenance includes regular torque wrench calibration. In this blog post, we’ll look at the benefits of having torque guns calibrated and why you should choose a calibration lab that’s achieved ISO 17025 accreditation.Read More
At Maxpro we are often asked, “what is a power torque wrench?” It depends on who you ask. Our company, MaxPro, is a diverse company when specializing in high capacity Torque Wrenches. MaxPro sells Pneumatic, Hydraulic, Battery and Electric torque wrenches. These four different styles of torque wrenches are all classified under the umbrella term “power torque wrench.”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
