Affordable torque option for precision, portability, and safety

10 Jul 2017

HYTORC has unveiled the company’s latest addition to the LION Gun series – the LION-.7. The LION Gun is a lithium ion battery-powered torque gun, which is lightweight and portable, with no attachments to hoses, cords, or compressors. The industrial strength, non-impacting gear box delivers adjustable torque faster, safer and more reliably than manual clicker wrenches, impact wrenches, and other tightening tools. The technology is free of the loud noise and high vibrations that can lead to long-term health issues for users. HYTORC’s LION-.7, has a ¾" drive, to deliver greater torque for larger applications. The LION-.7 provides a minimum torque of 150ft/lbs and a maximum of 700ft/lbs. The LION Gun is an affordable precision torque multiplier with built-in data recording. The user simply needs to set the desired torque output on the LION’s display and pull the trigger to get fast, precise, repeatable torque without excessive noise or vibration. The rotation angle can also be programmed for simple torque and angle bolting. After tightening, the LION automatically releases for fast movement from nut to nut. Once the bolting application is complete, the LION Gun can be connected to a PC or tablet to export the recorded data into an Excel-friendly format for reporting, storage or additional analysis. The 18-volt, battery-powered torque gun is 8lbs and designed for applications with bolts 1/2" to 1-1/8" in diameter and requiring 150-700ft/lbs of torque.
