Precision where it matters most
When you assemble hub and wheel bearings or a wheel mounting system with an impact gun or clicker wrench, typical torque accuracy rate can vary 30% up or down from the engineering specifications. Such wide scatter can result in major equipment defects, costly repairs, and even human injuries and fatalities. When the stakes are this high, “guesstimating” torque is simply not good enough.
Torque vs. Torque-and-Angle Bolting Method
When working in smaller spaces, like a bus fleet garage or heavy equipment shed, you need your tools to be as versatile as possible. Having a torque tool that lets you set an accurate angle can go a long way toward higher accuracy. Cordless torque tools are even better for maneuverability and speed. A torque-and-angle tool can help you achieve greater accuracy every time.
Metal and alloy bolts are meant to stretch. If a bolt is torqued to engineering spec, a small amount of stretch is normal and won’t cause any future problems. Small stretch doesn’t change the physical properties of the bolt and allows it to get back to its original shape for re-torquing. On the other hand, an over-torqued bolt is stretched so much that its physical properties are changed to the point of compromising its strength and durability. An over-torqued bolt is likely to crack, shear, come loose or break off, and cause major equipment damage or even human injury.
LION Battery Gun vs. Conventional Tools
How can you improve torque accuracy when conventional tools are not designed to do that? HYTORC recognized this problem and, building on decades of industrial engineering expertise, designed a solution—a cordless gun made specifically for smaller bolting applications, allowing you to work with greater efficiency and torque accuracy.
HYTORC makes industrial bolting safer and simpler. Since 1968, the company’s engineers have focused entirely on developing the highest quality industrial bolting systems. From steel mills and mining equipment to refineries, power plants, and wind turbines—HYTORC has developed solutions for every bolting application imaginable.
The LION Battery-Powered Torque Gun brings all of the industrial ingenuity of HYTORC to the commercial marketplace, because safety is equally important whether you are building a NASA spaceship, an Apache helicopter, or a school bus.
