TorcUP is offering its line of Raptor non-impacting pneumatic torque wrenches for the trucking industry’s toughest bolting applications.
“The Raptor is accurate to within 5% of its torque value compared to an impact wrench that is only accurate to within about 20% of its torque value,” explained Tim Benford, director of sales and marketing. “It has been proven that consistent use of an impact wrench can cause harm to mechanics in the form of white finger disease, carpal tunnel and nerve damage.”
The Rapto Pneumatic Torque Wrench is available in five models from 78 ft/lbs to 5,990 ft/lbs.
“The cause of a wheel-off is that either the fastener is too loose or too tight. With the RAPTOR, the operator can adjust the torque to an exact and precise required figure,” said TorcUP’s president John Kovacs.
