Canadian industrial torque wrench manufacturer RAD Torque Systems has launched its first-ever battery-powered torque wrench series, B-RAD Xtreme (B-RAD X).
The line is capable of torquing up to 11,000 foot-pounds/15,000 newton meters (Nm), making it the most powerful cordless torque wrench in the world. Three different sizes are available: B-RAD X 5,000 ft.-lbs./7,000 Nm; B-RAD X 8,000 ft.-lbs./10K Nm; and B-RAD X 11K ft.-lbs./15K Nm.
Fastening bolts in remote locations will now be easier for big industry as the cordless B-RAD X gives companies better mobility to torque and tension large bolts with less equipment to haul without compromising power or accuracy.
“We believe the B-RAD X is going to revolutionize the industry and change how big industry works. This tool will make the toughest torque jobs easier to tackle, faster to secure and safer for all operators,” president and owner Dan Provost said.
“RAD Torque is known for its innovation, and we are proud to be the first in the world to deliver a battery powered torque tool with this much power.”
Building off RAD Torque’s patented and world-renowned gearbox technology, the B-RAD X captures attention with its sleek new white design and rubber grip, a new high-performance motor, and its various features, including:
- Brushless DC motor for added durability and accuracy
- Redesigned anti-fatigue trigger switch with IP rating
- Standard handguard for added operator protection
- Two-hand start options to prevent hand injuries
- Battery latch lock to protect batteries from falling
- Digital screen
“The B-RAD X was developed in response to the demands of our customers who required increased portability and higher performance in a torque wrench,” said Luke Timmermans, senior engineer.
“We have meticulously designed and engineered the B-RAD X from scratch, offering users an exceptional industrial torque tool that excels in handling the most substantial bolting tasks worldwide, all without the need for cables. It’s the only tool of its kind in the world.”
The B-RAD Xtreme has two patents pending in the U.S., one for mechanical technology and one for electronic technology.
