Norbar introduces higher capacity non-magnetic torque wrench
02 August 2011
Norbar Torque Tools has introduced 50Nm non-magnetic torque wrench to complement its 20Nm version introduced late last year. Norbar TruTorque wrenches have important applications in the medical field, specifically for MRI manufacture and maintenance, where there is the presence of a strong magnetic field. Using non-magnetic tools on MRI Scanners can avoid serious risk of injury to the operator and damage to sensitive and expensive equipment.
The Norbar TruTorque 50Nm non-magnetic wrench is acceptable for the majority of MRI scanners in use today and has further applications across a range of industries where tools also have to be used in the presence of a strong magnetic field, such as:
Radar Transmission Centres
Precision Magnetic Equipment
Permanent Magnetic Generators
Accuracy of reading is +/-3%, exceeding international standards.
