RAD® pneumatic torque wrenches are air powered planetary gear reduction torque multipliers designed to deliver the most powerful, accurate and safe torque load of any tools on the market today.
Our patented gearbox design allows us to configure very high gear ratios (up to 686:1) developing extremely high torque values from a lightweight and ergonomic hand held pistol grip tools. Rad Torque tools are being used Worldwide in many industries where power, durability and accuracy are considered critical.
Our smooth constant rotation drive system make our tools ideal for applications other than bolting fasteners such as valve actuation, hopper car door opening, running large threading taps, etc. RAD® pneumatic torque wrenches are regularly replacing more traditional bolting tools for safety reasons and cost effectiveness.
