The Difference Between a Torque Wrench and Torque Multiplier

August 30, 2023

In the symphony of mechanics and engineering, where precision orchestrates every movement, the role of torque tools resonates with unparalleled significance. At the heart of this symphony stand two remarkable instruments – the torque wrench and the torque multiplier. In this exploration, we uncover the intricacies that set these hand torque tools apart while shining a spotlight on Norbar Australia’s exceptional contributions.

Torque Wrench: Precision Personified

A torque wrench is the conductor’s baton of the mechanical orchestra. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, it’s the tool that ensures bolts and nuts are tightened with impeccable precision. This attention to detail finds its true purpose in sectors where a fraction of a degree can spell the difference between seamless functionality and catastrophic failure.

We at Norbar Australia, a renowned name in the realm of torque technology, boast a spectrum of torque wrenches. These aren’t mere tools; they’re instruments of precision, translating into the reliability and longevity of structures, vehicles, and machinery. Our torque wrenches are faster, safer and more accurate than any other torque wrench on the market today, able to achieve torque values ranging from 1.0 N·m to 2000 N·m.

Torque Multiplier: Power Unleashed

Enter the torque multiplier – a force multiplier in the toolkit of a professional. This mechanical marvel steps onto the stage when ordinary torque tools falter. It possesses the unique ability to amplify torque applied to a fastener, a trait that becomes invaluable when dealing with bolts that cling to their threads with unwavering determination.

The Norbar HandTorque lineup stands as the most all-encompassing range of torque multipliers currently accessible on the market. These are tailor-made for scenarios with low usage frequency or when a power source isn’t feasible. Our Standard series of HandTorque Multipliers can effortlessly reach impressive torque levels, soaring up to 47,500 N·m. Rest assured, their torque multiplication accuracy of approximately +-4% is a testament to their reliability.
