Modular parts eliminate need for separate tools for design of new HMT series torque wrenches
Enerpac has introduced its new HMT series modular torque wrenches, designed to be flexible, two-in-one tools that can be used with a low-profile hex or square drive cassettes with built-in interchangeability with a wide range of hydraulic torque wrenches and cassettes on the market.
According to Enerpac, the HMT series is the “one wrench to rule them all” and its modular parts eliminate the need to select and purchase separate tools, thus helping reduce the cost of ownership. The ATEX and CE approved Enerpac HMT torque wrenches are the most durable wrenches in their class, the manufacturer claims, with up to a 2.5X longer life expectancy than other leading tools.
“Housed in lightweight alloys, the HMT provides strength and versatility to a variety of bolting applications, all in a single tool. When it comes to speed, Enerpac HMT torque wrenches have best-in-class efficiency and are up to 25% faster than competitor torque wrenches. It’s low maintenance too, with only three moving parts; all of which are enclosed, minimising pinch points,” said Enerpac in a statement.
Features and benefits of the new Enerpac torque wrench include 30 degrees of stroke allowing up to 25% faster bolting than other known brands, while the tool’s fine tooth ratchet prevents it from locking on, thus speeding up the bolting process.
Supplied with an ergonomic safety handle as standard, the Enerpac HMT torque wrenches include a push button, quick release, reversible square drive, while the HSQ square drive reaction arm has a single dial lock for rapid change. The HMT series’ square drive reaction arm also allows the body to move away from any obstacles.
Used with Hex sizes from 1 1/16-inch to 3 15/16-inch AF or 26-100mm AF, the torque wrench has an accuracy of +/-3%. For additional safety, a link pin retainer prevents dropped objects.
