Mountz Inc. introduces its new line of Electric Torque Multipliers. The easy-to-operate electric torque multipliers are designed for precision tightening and loosening of all heavy duty fastening applications. From tightening large industrial bolts used in windmill gearbox assemblies to bolting maintenance applications for oil & gas pipelines and rigs, the Mountz torque multipliers achieve precision torque in a quick, cost-efficient manner.
The electric torque multiplier shuts-off when pre-set torque is achieved. It's a non-impacting and operates at a smooth, continuous rotation; the electric torque multiplier increases speed and productivity, as it is faster than a hydraulic wrench and is less expensive. The tool eliminates the cumbersome set up time and slow ratcheting process of hydraulic wrenches. The electric torque multiplier is also ergonomically safer than the harmful hammering of impact wrenches and eliminates the frequent costly repairs of impact wrenches.
In nearly every heavy industrial application, turning threaded fasteners - nuts and bolts - is generally viewed by two criteria: (1) the need to fasten tightly enough to prevent movement of parts and achieve a good seal without exceeding the fastener's elasticity level, and (2) successful removal of fasteners after long periods of environmental exposure to harsh conditions.
When installing or removing heavy-duty fasteners that require power, precision and safety, the Mountz electric torque multipliers is the solution. Without the hassles of air hoses, the electric torque multipliers simply plugs into a power outlet. The speed, frequency and torque output of electric torque multiplier are correspondingly regulated and controlled with a built-in controller.
Featuring a high performance brushless motor design that provides durability and reduces the standard maintenance costs the electric torque multipliers are a cost efficient tool. The electric torque multipliers are available in an in-line, right angle and IP54 weather protection configuration with various models covering a torque range of 52 to 7,288 foot-pounds. With a universal AC Input (100-253V / 45-66 Hz), the multiplier can operate anywhere in the world.
Technicians are finding that the best solution for applying high torque today is with a complete range of torque control products, including manual and powered torque wrenches and torque multipliers. Mountz torque multipliers provide precision torque control, making it easier and often safer to assemble and service-threaded fasteners while reducing application problems and tool costs.
