Power torque tools refer to tools that use a power source to provide torque, with power sources including electric, hydraulic, pneumatic, etc. These power torque tools are primarily used for tightening bolts and nuts.

In the industrial and mechanical fields, power torque tools are widely used for fastening and loosening bolts and nuts, controlling the torque of bolts during assembly processes, and enhancing equipment quality.

Therefore, in this article, TorcStark will mainly introduce who the manufacturers of power torque tools are and where power torque tools are manufactured.

I. Types and Applications of Power Torque Tools

Electric Torque Tools

Electric torque tools are a category of torque tools driven by electric power. Below are several common types of electric torque tools and their applications:

Electric torque wrench: Used for tightening and loosening bolts and nuts of various specifications, suitable for mechanical manufacturing, automotive maintenance, construction engineering, and other fields.

Electric screwdriver: Used for installing and removing screws, suitable for various occasions such as home decoration, woodworking, and electronic assembly.

Electric torque controller: Used to control and adjust the torque output of electric torque tools, ensuring that bolts or nuts are correctly tightened and avoiding over-tightening or insufficient torque output.

Electric nut runner: Used for rapid installation and removal of nuts, typically used on assembly lines or in situations requiring a large number of nut installations.

Electric torque tester: Used for testing and calibrating the torque output of electric torque tools, ensuring the accuracy of torque output.

Pneumatic Torque Tools

Pneumatic torque tools are a category of torque tools driven by air pressure, typically powered by compressed air. Below are several common types of pneumatic torque tools and their applications:

Pneumatic torque wrench: Used for tightening and loosening bolts and nuts with high torque requirements, suitable for automotive maintenance, aerospace, shipbuilding, bridge construction, and other fields.

Pneumatic screw gun: Used for high-speed installation and removal of screws, suitable for automotive assembly lines, mechanical manufacturing, electronic product assembly, and other occasions.

Pneumatic nut runner: Used for rapid installation and removal of nuts, typically used on production lines or in situations requiring a large number of nut installations.

Pneumatic torque controller: Used to control and adjust the torque output of pneumatic torque tools, ensuring that bolts or nuts are properly tightened and avoiding over-tightening.

Pneumatic torque tester: Used for testing and calibrating the torque output of pneumatic torque tools, ensuring their accuracy and consistency.

Hydraulic Torque Tools

Hydraulic torque tools are a category of torque tools powered by hydraulic systems. Below are several common types of hydraulic torque tools and their applications:

Hydraulic torque wrench: Used for tightening and loosening bolts and nuts of various specifications, suitable for fields requiring high torque such as bridge construction, wind power, petrochemicals, and shipbuilding.

Hydraulic torque wrench pump: Provides high-pressure hydraulic force for hydraulic torque wrenches, ensuring the proper operation of torque tools, typically used in conjunction with hydraulic torque wrenches.

Hydraulic torque tester: Used for testing and calibrating the torque output of hydraulic torque tools, ensuring the accuracy of torque output.

Manual Torque Tools

Manual torque tools are a category of torque tools that require manual operation. Below are several common types of manual torque tools and their applications:

Torque wrench: Used for tightening and loosening bolts and nuts while ensuring they reach the specified torque value. Suitable for various fields such as automotive maintenance, mechanical manufacturing, and aerospace.

Torque limiter: Used to limit the torque output of torque wrenches, preventing over-tightening or damage to bolts and nuts.

Torque wrench extension bar: Used to tighten bolts or nuts in hard-to-reach locations, increasing the effective length of the torque wrench.

Torque wrench socket: Used to be mounted on a torque wrench and used in conjunction with bolts or nuts to transmit torque.

II. Overview of Power Torque Tool Manufacturers

Hytorc

When it comes to industrial bolting tool manufacturers, Hytorc can be said to be one of the most famous brands. It has a history of 50 years. For 50 years Hytorc has focused on developing high-quality industrial bolting systems.
