The new torque wrenches – which complement Enerpac’s globally proven W hexagon and S square drive torque wrenches – feature a tapered design, narrow radius and top-mounted handle to help facilitate access to very tight spaces.

Enerpac says its new wrenches can easily be mounted over bolts in narrow access applications, and “provide superior accuracy with plus or minus 3% across the full stroke”

The wrenches are simple to use and maintain, fast release drive unit enables easy exchange of cassettes with no tools required, combining premium grade components with enhanced tool geometry to provide bolting professionals with “one of the toughest and most durable narrow access solutions on the market”.

Enerpac global product manager – bolting Kurt Huber said the new wrenches would improve safety, provide more uptime and last longer than any competitive slim line torque wrench.

“With a unique compact design, exceptional accuracy and superior durability, our UltraSlim torque wrenches meet our customers’ needs in performing narrow access bolting applications while ensuring the highest quality performance,” Huber said.

For increased versatility, the UltraSlim cassette 12 point socket design allows twice as many positioning points on a nut or bolt, compared with the typical 6 point socket. A new top-mounted straight handle facilitates safe and easy access to hard-to-reach fasteners.

To accommodate diverse applications, an optional angled handle is also available on request.

All the wrenches are CE-ATEX declared for use in explosive environments, and are shipped complete with a calibration certificate, unique to the tool helping to ensure accuracy and traceability.

The first of the UltraSlim ranges to be introduced, the W4000 series, covers AF nut sizes from 55 to 75mm and their imperial equivalent of 2 3/16 to 2 15/16 inches, providing a solution for precision tightening and loosening where standard low profile tools won’t fit.
