Powerful Torque in a Portable Wrench for Rail
RAD Torque Systems’ battery tools have always been a great solution for the rail industry, where lightweight, portable tools are a must. RAD’s wrenches offer peace of mind. Technicians know that bolts are fastened with the correct amount of torque and can withstand wear from trains weighing thousands of tonnes.
With the B-RAD BL S, the rail industry can take advantage of increased accuracy and data collection wherever needed.
“You don’t always have access to a power source when servicing rail tracks, so it’s important to find a tool that will get into remote locations without compromising accuracy or efficiency,” says Brian Warmerdam, Product Manager at RAD Torque Systems. “The B-RAD BL S will get the work done anywhere you take it!”
The new extreme torque wrench is an addition to the popular battery-operated series known as the B-RAD. Like its predecessor, the B-RAD BL Select, the new S tool has a brushless motor for speed and efficiency, but it’s integrated with a torque transducer for incredible accuracy regardless of joint conditions, which means it’s ideal for the rail industry.
The B-RAD BL S automatically records all torque cycles, including torque measurements, through the integrated transducer. The data from the torque measurements recorded on each job can easily be retrieved wirelessly with a Bluetooth connection and the easy-to-use RAD software. This additional control not only increases the accuracy of your torque output, but the transducer measurement also allows the recorded torque logs to hold up to scrutiny.
The B-RAD BL S also offers angle movement. The angle capabilities with the B-RAD BL S means this tool can be used on the most difficult and critical applications.
Warmerdam adds, “Wherever and whenever torque accuracy is critical, the B-RAD BL S will get the job done. The B-RAD BL S has best-in-class accuracy and data collection, so you can be confident in your work and track your progress.”
The B-RAD BL S has torque capabilities of up to 5,000 ft.lbs. All RAD Torque tools are calibrated to ISO 17025 standards.
