Norbar introduces non-magnetic torque wrench for special maintenance applications
10 November 2010
Norbar Torque Tools has introduced its first ever non-magnetic torque wrench, which is proving invaluable for medical equipment maintenance, notably in the MRI field. It also has further applications across a range of industries wherever tools have to be used in the presence of a strong magnetic field.
For MRI scanner maintenance, a torque wrench is required to check the bolts used to connect the gradient power supply cables. This non-magnetic tool is an important advance for both health & safety and asset protection, because using standard steel tools close to high power magnets can be both difficult and hazardous.
Manufacturing the new tool required carefully selected and tested materials to replace the ferrous components present in standard torque wrenches. It is designed and manufactured to the same high standards as Norbar's other torque tools, but has an extremely low magnetic footprint.
