WI - With the introduction of TECHWRENCH"
(TECH2FR100), the new electronic torque wrench from Snap-on
Tools Company, automotive technicians can quickly adjust
settings with the press of a button. The affordable, rugged
and easy-to-use tool is consistent and accurate up to two-percent
clockwise and four-percent counterclockwise.
the TECHWRENCH, technicians can select the appropriate amount
of torque needed for a full range of applications. Four
separate operating buttons have one function each, which
include on, up or down torque selection and the unit of
measure. Technicians can choose torque ranges between five-
and 100-ft. lbs. and read in three different units of measure
in lb., ft. lb. and Nm.
the quick push of a button, an LED display indicates the
amount of torque selected and the unit of measure used -
a timesaving benefit for technicians. Upon applying the
torque to a fastener, the TECHWRENCH's handle vibrates and
emits a beep to let technicians know when
to stop pulling. The unit then displays the actual torque
achieved, which helps prevent over- torquing.
TECHWRENCH features an ergonomic, non-slip handle that is
designed to increase comfort and help improve productivity.
A stand on the bottom of the unit stabilizes the wrench
on flat surfaces to prevent the unit from rolling away.
The rugged design of the TECHWRENCH allows it to withstand
bumps and bruises, and also seals the electrical components
to protect from water, shop fluid or dirt.
TECHWRENCH operates on three AA batteries and automatically
shuts off after remaining idle for two minutes. The LED
display indicates when the unit's batteries are low. A protective
storage case is included with the TECHWRENCH. Additional
sizes and ranges of the product will be available soon.
