Torque Applying Tools

Types of Applying Tools

Preset Tools: ideal in environments that require the same torque to be applied to a fastener time after time. As these types of tools are tamperproof they can be used by operators of any skill level. The tools must be set using a Calibration Analyser.

Calibrated Scale Tools: ideal for use in areas where a range of different torque settings need to be applied. These types of tools have a visible scale that allows the user to adjust them to their desired torque setting.


The principles underlying Torque Tool Mechanisms

Slipping Tools: Overtightening Impossible When the preset torque value is reached, (as indicated by the dotted line in the graph) a mechanism in these tools cause the application of torque to cease and the tools slip free.

Breaking Tools: Overtightening Unlikely When the preset torque value is reached, (as indicated by the dotted line in the graph) these tools break at a specific point along their length. The movement is approximately 20°.

Clicking Tools: Overtightening Possible When the preset torque value is reached, (as indicated by the dotted line in the graph) the operator will hear a click and feel an impulse. The movement is approximately 3°.

Torque Applying Tools

QSN 120 SD
  • Quickset screwdrivers achieve accurate torque application by eliminating both under and over tightening using Torqueleader’s proven slipping technology. This enables any user to deliver the correct torque with confidence regardless of task and operator skill level
  • Fast and accurate to set, using the quick and clear to read micrometer setting scale
TSN 55
  • Accurate process control is ensured by eliminating under and over tightening due to the proven Torqueleader slipping technology regardless of operator’s hand position
  • Reduces the likelihood of warranty and rework by assuring process control through accurate and repeatable torque setting due to its tamperproof adjusting system
TSC 10
  • These wrenches improve control of the fastening process by reducing the risk of both under and over tightening. This is achieved by Torqueleader’s unique slipping mechanism, which gives the operator more time to react once the target torque is reached
  • Helps maintain production output by minimising operator fatigue through the tool’s ergonomic design
RTU 1000 HEX
  • Versatile torque limiters that allow conventional Hand and Power tools to be easily converted into Torque Tools
  • Accurate process control assured by eliminating under and over tightening due to the proven Torqueleader slipping technology
TBN 65
  • These wrenches improve control of the fastening process by reducing the risk of both under and over tightening. This is achieved by Torqueleader’s unique breaking mechanism, which gives the operator more time to react once the target torque is reached
  • Maximises productivity in restricted space applications through their compact slim line design
ATB 10 with Ratchet End Fitting
  • Compact design allows easy access where space is restricted
  • Offers improved control of the tightening process by reducing the risk of under and over tightening. This is achieved by Torqueleader’s unique breaking mechanism that allows the operator more time to react once the target torque is achieved
ATB 100 showing 1/2" Ratchet Head
  • Offers improved control of the tightening process by reducing the risk of under and over tightening. This is achieved by Torqueleader’s unique breaking mechanism that allows the operator more time to react once the target torque is achieved
  • Fast and accurate to set using the quick and clear to read micrometer setting scale
TSP 10 Through Hole
  • Accurate tightening of blind fasteners such as HI-LITE®, AERO-LITE® and VERI-LITE® can be achieved with this innovative range of Through Hole Spindle Slipping Wrenches
  • Accurate process control is ensured by eliminating under and over tightening due to the proven Torqueleader slipping technology, regardless of the operator’s hand position
TSN 25 A Sw
  • These tools give complete confidence that the tightening process has been performed by validating that the torque wrenches have operated. Upon each successful activation of the wrenches a signal is sent which can be used to control production flow or count completed tightenings
  • Cost effective solution as these tools can be integrated into most Production Lines as the output signal is simply a switch opening and closing
WSTT 20
  • Go/NoGo tests for weld stud integrity can be carried out quickly and efficiently using the WSTT product range
  • Easy and effective to use due to its intuitive T-Bar design and Torqueleader’s breaking technology
