'Torque-ing' pictures: Norbar bares all!
01 July 2006
Norbar Torque Tools has released a two-disc Flash multimedia presentation illustrating virtually every aspect of its activities. As well as highlighting its wide portfolio, detailed videos and animations give users an overview of the benefits of using its products in real-world applications. Divided into product families for easy navigation, the 'Products' disc presents the entire Norbar product range of torque wrenches, torque multipliers, testers and transducers. Each product feature includes practical hints and tips that will be of interest to existing users as well as prospective purchasers. Of particular interest to workshop managers is an in-depth look at the latest Pneutorque tools, products that reduce worker exposure to dangerous levels of noise and vibration, while delivering the benefits of true torque-controlled tooling.
Recent legislation has introduced new limits for both noise and vibration exposure which, as the Norbar video reveals, has serious implications for the continued use of impact wrenches in environments like motor vehicle workshops. The effects of the use of impact wrenches compared to Pneutorque were analysed in a recent independent study; the results of which are presented in the video and make a compelling case for change in the way impact wrenches are employed.
The second disc, entitled 'Facilities, Industries and Technology' takes a look at Norbar's history, how the company operates and who uses Norbar torque tools. A video tour shows the entire production process from design to finishing, including a detailed look at the company's in-house calibration certification facilities. The second disc concludes with a look at three Norbar customers, and how its tools are employed in activities as diverse as heavy earthmoving machinery and aviation.
Free copies of the DVDs can be ordered from the Norbar web site.
