Control High Torque Fast, Accurately and Safely With Snap-on Industrial's New Pneumatic Torque Wrenches

Kenosha, Wis., December 4,  2013 – When speed and accuracy matter in applying torque, pneumatic is the way to go.

Snap-on Industrial’s new Pneumatic Torque Wrenches efficiently and accurately applies torque to fasteners, thanks to a dual speed gearbox and pneumatic technology that controls input air pressure.

To deliver performance for technicians working in oil fields, construction, ship yards, power generation, railroads, maintenance, mining and aviation, Snap-on Industrial’s Pneumatic Torque Wrenches come with a dual speed gearbox. This design feature provides a rundown gear with speeds  as high as 100 RPM for fast rundown of fasteners, and a torque gear with a much slower RPM to ensure control and accuracy.

Features and benefits of Snap-on Industrial’s Pneumatic Torque Wrenches include:

• Control torque to +/- 5% accuracy

• Variety of high-strength reaction arms available to fit nearly any application
