Willoughby, Ohio-based Norbar Torque Tools Inc. has introduced a new gearbox design to its family of Pneutorque pneumatic torque wrenches. Models in the new series are faster, lighter, smaller and easier to handle than other units of similar capacities, according to the company.

New torque ranges for the PTM-92 models are 398-1,992 feet-pounds and 516-2,582 feet-pounds. The larger PTM-92 model is half the weight and 60% faster than the nearest equivalent from Norbar's traditional range.To follow shortly are the 664-3,319 feet-pounds and 885-4,426 feet-pounds PTM-119 Series Models. Tools of this size are typically used in mining, wind generators and large off-road vehicles.

In testing at a major wind turbine manufacturer on multi-stage tightening of the shrink disc, for each re-application of the tool, the Pneutorque moved the bolt 30 degrees more than its competitor and total job completion was 25% faster, according to Norbar.
