Critical Rotor Assembly Nut for Helicopter Tightened with a Hand Torque Multiplier

A helicopter manufacturer had a critical torque application during the routine maintenance process of their aircraft. The rotor of the helicopter requires servicing after every 20 hours of flight. Some of these aircraft are serviced in very remote locations, where air or power is not readily available or reliable. Ensuring proper torque control is achieved…

Durability of Brushless Electric Screwdrivers vs Standard Electric Screwdrivers

Designed for high production environments, electric screwdrivers with a high performance brushless motor design provides durability and reduces the standard maintenance costs for standard electric screwdrivers. Management in power tools ensures product quality, cost savings and a reduction in overall failures. Standard Electric Screwdrivers (with Brushes) These ordinary models use brushes and over time there’s…

Testing of Various Suspension Bolts with a Hand Torque Multiplier

A manufacturer of heavy-duty trailer suspensions was looking for a way they could verify torque and tension on suspension bolts used on current products and on new products that were in development. The manufacturer was experiencing quality control issues, which were causing production delays and rework expenses. Upon further investigation, the quality control manager traced…

Pneumatic Torque Multipliers

Heavy Duty Fastening Applications with Pneumatic Torque Multipliers

Historical approaches to working with heavy-duty threaded fasteners have aimed at sheer torque power, using long lever arms and heavy hammers on slugging wrenches. More recently, the hydraulic wrench has been viewed as the solution to many problems that require serious torque. But hydraulic wrenches are notorious for their heavy ratchets, bulky compressors and laborious…

TSN Cam-Over Torque Wrenches

Cam-Over Torque Wrench Prevents Over-Torque Conditions

TSN cam-over torque wrenches are designed to provide reliable and precise torque control for bolting applications that do not tolerate over-torque conditions. Improper torque control increases manufacturing costs and delays. Using cam-over wrench removes the operator influence out of the fastening process and offers precision and repeatable torque results. A standard click wrench cannot ensure…

Deep Down in Coal Mine, Torque Multipliers are Selected for Maintenance Applications

Deep down in a coal mine, the foreman faced lengthy and costly dilemmas for two key maintenance applications. The first maintenance application was for removing and re-tightening the bolts during the servicing process for “Mining Heads” used on the industrial machines attached to the vehicles underground. The “Mining Heads” are used to channel through rock…

Pneumatic Torque Multiplier Provides Torque Control for Manufacturing Large Gas Engines

A manufacturer of large industrial gas engines had a torque application for fastening an industrial engine block in a washing chamber after the milling process. The large gas engines are designed and built for demanding applications in waste water treatment plants, power plants, oil & gas fields and other energy applications all over the world.…
