Snap-on Industrial released the Cordless Torque Multiplier, a heavy-duty, transducer-controlled, battery-powered tool capable of delivering between 250 and 3,000-ft-lb of torque.
The CTM employs intelligent joint sensing technology that continually measures the joint during tightening and, when necessary, deploys dynamic braking to avoid overshoot due to motor inertia.
The tool allows two-way communication via Bluetooth for live data, and it can save and download up to 3,000 time- and date-stamped readings via USB cable, Snap-on Industrial reported. Data can be output in SSV format to communicate directly with a data management system. The tool can communicate with smart devices, which can push data to the cloud. Information, such as tightening sequences, can also be sent to the CTM.
