Freshly developed wrench
21 February 2008
Norbar Torque Tools has introduced the TruTorque, one of the most significant designs in its history. The design team was aiming to producing the best possible tool using the latest materials and engineering techniques for UK and world markets, whilst also being cost-effective.
The key objectives were to produce a wrench that is durable and will stay in calibration for as long as possible, even when used regularly in tough workshop conditions. The new wrench uses an improved mechanism that still retains some of the elements from the original tried and tested design.
Adjustment is relatively simple, with the coarse scale on the handle and a micrometer for fine setting. Whereas some well known wrenches need an arm wrestler to adjust them, the new Norbar Wrench moves with fingertip control over the whole length of the scale.
The totally new grip design is extremely comfortable with excellent slip resistance in all conditions.
The TruTorque models cover a total torque range from 20 to 300 Nm in five models. All sizes offer bi-directional torque control, essential for left hand threads and for controlling the maximum torque when undoing bolts. Ratchets are reversible for ease of positioning and have a narrow engagement angle so they can be used in tight spaces.
The Trutorque is accurate to +/- 3% of reading, exceeding all international standards; and each wrench is supplied with a traceable calibration certificate. A lock is incorporated to prevent accidental adjustment of the set torque.
