Norbar’s research revealed that traditional electric torque tools were giving vastly different results depending on the joint type. The torque delivered to a hard joint could be more than double the torque that the same tool with the same settings would deliver to a soft joint with great potential to leave bolts under or over tightened and potentially dangerous. In developing our own electronic torque tool we decided that we needed radically different motor technology and control software to eliminate these issues.
Our solution needed to be accurate, efficient, ergonomic and intelligent. It needed to deliver the exact amount of torque required during the tightening or joint verification process of bolts, across a range of joint types and applications - from the commercial vehicle sector to wind energy.
Our extensive technical studies and development trials revealed the ideal formulation of motor technology, software and exterior design features required to deliver a state-of-the-art elect ...
