Torqueing up

Digital torque ratchets from Laser Tools

Published:  04 February, 2016

These new digital torque ratchets from Laser Tools are designed to secure fasteners that need to be tightened to lower torque figures and when therefore over-tightening is a real risk. Smaller in length than a full sized torque wrench, they give a convenient and functional solution to this risk of over-tightening.

The ¼" drive model is a compact 200mm long and covers the range 6-30Nm; the 3/8-inch drive model is 230mm long and ranges between 16-80Nm; the 1/2-inch drive model is 275mm long and ranges between 20-100Nm.

With a clear digital display, they all feature a very smooth 72 tooth ratchet mechanism, batteries are included and they are very accurate (plus or minus 3-4%). They also feature an automatic shut-off function to prevent batteries draining when not in use. Each product is supplied in a sturdy blow mould case for storage.
