Facom, Europe’s leading tool provider, has launched a new premium range of electronic torque and angle wrenches designed to give ultimate accuracy and reliability for mechanics and engineers.
The company aims to set a market standard with its E. 316 torque and angle wrenches for use in situations where accuracy and product reliability are paramount considerations, including industrial and automotive, aviation and engineering industries.
The range is able to withstand intensive use and will maintain calibration for both torque and angles to +/- 2%, is resistant to workshop chemicals, offers USB computer link-up to download data and preset values and is designed for easy use in testing conditions.
Alison Howard, UK Marketing Manager for Facom, said: "The E.316 series torque and angle wrenches offer state-of-the-art technology and carry Facom’s premium quality assurance.
"This product aims to set the standard for high-accuracy, premium torque and angle wrenches, as it is designed with high levels of functionality but with a clear focus on usability.
"Functionality includes an auto-test facility, which means the wrench tests itself prior to use for optimum accuracy. Users receive audible and visual cues when torque is applied and the ability to store nine preset values allows for staged tightening procedures."
A simple and clear method of setting torque without the use of dials or rotating handles makes the wrenches intuitive and easy to operate under difficult industry conditions and by providing PC data transfer via a USB link, the user can store up to 250 torque values on a PC.
The E.316 series of torque and angle wrenches range from 1.5Nm to 340Nm capacity,have a two-year warranty and come complete with calibration certificate.
The torque wrenches are available with or without a ratchet head, and list prices start from £444.90.
