You’ll never over-tighten a screw again

An important development in torque tools has taken place with the launch of an innovative range of torque screwdrivers, claims torque measurement and control specialist Norbar.

The TruTorque range of products includes adjustable tools for flexibility of use and fixed torque versions called P Types, which have been designed for the production environment and pre-set for specific workplace demands. Norbar tells us that the new products are safe, easy-to-use and extraordinarily accurate, to better than the International Standard. They also offer high performance capabilities for dealing with a wide range of precision tasks requiring sensitive and safe screw connection, it is claimed. All adjustable tools are supplied with traceable calibration certificates.

The variable versions are easy to adjust without need of additional tools and can be locked to prevent accidental adjustment of the set torque. For maximum versatility and particularly for applications with limited access, the bit holder can be removed and replaced with widely available screwdriver blades. The durable handle is constructed from a strong base material covered with a soft overlay for comfort and slip resistance.
