Designed to meet the needs of the commercial vehicle market, the integrated reaction foot of the PTME-72 series of tools reaches recessed wheel bolts whilst the 72 mm diameter gearbox handles the high frequency of use demanded by busy tyre shops.
The EvoTorque®2 is an electronic torque tool designed to accurately apply torque to threaded fasteners. Tools are factory calibrated to ±3% of reading. The unique ‘intelligent joint sensing’ technology continually measures the joint during tightening and when necessary, employs dynamic braking to avoid torque over-shoot due to motor inertia. Consequently, EvoTorque®2 can apply torque accurately over a wide range of joint rates from hard (high torque rate) through to soft (low torque rate). All EvoTorque®2 tools are highly tolerant of supply voltage and frequency variation. If the supply voltage is outside of tolerance then, as a safety feature, the tool will be prevented from starting.
Using twin motor technology, the PTM series of PneuTorques is engineered to be amongst the lightest and fastest on the market. For example, the 800 N.m version has a gearbox diameter of just 52 mm, allowing excellent bolt access, and has a maximum free running speed of 224 rpm. Torque control is normally achieved by adjustment of air pressure. An air pressure versus torque graph and a calibration certificate is supplied with each tool.
