PTM Series

The PTM series of PneuTorques is engineered to be amongst the lightest and fastest on the market for torques up to 6000 N·m. Torque control is normally achieved by adjustment of air pressure. An air pressure versus torque graph a calibration certificate is supplied with each tool.

PTM-52, PTM-72 and PTME-72 also offer the option of electronic torque control.

PneuTorque PTM-52 Series

PneuTorque PTM-52 Series

The PTM-52 is engineered to be one of the lightest and fastest tools of its type on the market. The exceptionally compact 52mm diameter gearbox means that the tool is well balanced, light weight and provides excellent access to bolts. Fast - 800 N·m version has a free speed of 175 rpm for rapid bolt run-down.

  • Light weight - single direction stall tool weighs just 3.8 kg.
  • Quiet - less than 85 dB(A) when under load.
  • Low vibration levels make these tools comfortable and safe to use - non impacting.
  • Square drive is quickly and easily replaceable.
  • 'Soft Start' trigger control aids socket location and allows gradual and safe reaction location.
  • For safety, gearbox can rotate independently from the handle so that reaction forces are not transmitted back to the operator.
  • Dual Trigger versions reduce the risk of the operator's hands becoming trapped between the reaction bar and reaction point.
  • Engineered to Order reaction accessories are also available, see examples.

PneuTorque PTM-72 Series

PneuTorque PTM-72 Series

PTM-72 tools use the same 'twin motor' handle as the PTM-52 but fitted with a durable 72mm gearbox to allow higher torque outputs. The 'twin motor' concept gives the benefit of high run-down speeds while adding very little to the size and weight of the tool.

  • Fast - 1000 N·m version has a free speed of 140 rpm for rapid bolt run-down.
  • Light weight - single direction 2000 N·m stall tool weighs just 6.2 kg.
  • Less than 85 dB(A) when under load.
  • Non impacting - low vibration levels make these tools comfortable and safe to use.
  • Quick and easy to replace the square drive.
  • Socket location is aided by the 'Soft Start' trigger control and allows gradual and safe reaction location.
  • Gearbox can rotate independently from the handle for safety, so that reaction forces are not transmitted back to the operator.
  • Dual trigger versions reduce the risk of the operator's hands becoming trapped between the reaction bar and reaction point.
  • Engineered to Order reaction accessories are also available, see examples.

Bi-Directional models can also be supplied as Shut-Off versions, with either Internal or External control, with minimum impact on the overall tool size and weight, meaning that a repeatability of +/-2% can be guaranteed.
