Snap-On introduces lightweight electronic torque wrench

When talking about tools, being referred to as a lightweight usually isn’t a good thing. But that’s not the case with the new ControlTech (CTECH) Aluminum Electronic Torque Wrench, according to officials with Snap-on Industrial.

PeteMcArthur_ImageNumber_PIETitleDesigned for frequent use, the CTECH Aluminum is a lightweigh torque wrench for technicians, particularly applicable in aerospace where its 12-240 in. lb. range is widely used. At just one pound, the weight is comparable to mechanical micrometer torque wrenches, yet the CTECH provides instant feedback on the exact torque actually applied – something mechanical wrenches can’t do, according to company officials.

Features of the ControlTech Aluminum Electronic Torque Wrench include:

  • Built in calibration factor for different extensions and adapters
  • Control torque accuracy to +/- 2% clockwise, +/- 3% counterclockwise
  • Dual side LED indicator lights with configurable settings provide operational guidance
  • LCD screen, LED indicator lights; audible beep and handle vibration work together to signal when torque is within the targeted range
  • Dual 80 technology provides precise yet strong ratchet function with minimal ratcheting arc and very little lost motion, allowing you to ratchet in tighter areas
  • Time-based calibration indicator
  • 50 memory presets with batch count; presets can be locked to prevent
  • inadvertent changes
  • Fully programmable for reliable, consistent, repeatable torque application
  • Sequence programming and job mode
  • High capacity memory for storage of 1,500 readings
  • Time stamped data trail for quality control, job auditing and torque verification
  • USB plug and play technology allows data download without additional softwareSpecifications
