Boost Your Manufacturing Efficiency and Savings with RAD Torque Systems Tools: E-RAD and B-RAD Torque Wrenches

Time is money in the world of manufacturing. Speeding up production with one tool means significant savings for you, your business, or customers.

Many manufacturers are exchanging their old hydraulic torque wrenches for RAD Torque Systems tools to improve their assembly lines. RAD Torque wrenches are known worldwide for their high capacity and accuracy.


Tom Macey at Maxpro Corporation, a master distributor of RAD Torque tools in eastern US, has observed significant interest. Manufacturing companies are keen on the E-RAD (electronic) and B-RAD (battery-powered) torque wrenches.

“I’ve seen firsthand how a company can save a huge amount of time with their assembly process,” says Macey. “For example, a well-known manufacturer of valves switched to the E-RAD 11K from a hydraulic torque wrench and found it was four times faster!”

The E-RAD BLU series precision torque wrench is designed for high-torque assembly applications with high accuracy (+/- 3% on target). RAD has also paired it with their renowned gearbox and AC Servo motor technology.

This reduces bolting time by up to 300% compared to conventional hydraulic wrenches.


Another popular tool in the manufacturing industry is RAD Torque’s battery series. It includes the B-RAD in the S, Select, and Offset models. These especially powerful battery torque wrenches can torque up to 5,000 ft. lbs. – handling the toughest applications.

“Manufacturing environments are usually controlled fairly tightly,” says Brain Warmerdam, RAD Torque Systems Product Manager. “A lot of companies want torque wrenches with data collection, like our B-RAD S, which is ideal for anyone who wants more advanced process control features.”B-RAD S for Manufacturing

The B-RAD S is equipped with a built-in transducer. It makes torquing and data collection evidently easier, reading and displaying torque in real time. Additionally, with torque and angle capabilities, the B-RAD S is ready for the most critical applications and will hold up to scrutiny on a variety of projects.

The B-RAD S, with its data logging capabilities, is an excellent choice for manufacturing companies who want to keep up with Industry 4.0 standards.


In January 2023, RAD Torque Systems will revolutionize the industry with the highly anticipated launched of the world’s first battery torque tool capable of torquing up to 11,000 ft. lbs. (15,000 Nm) – brining even more torque power without cables to big industry.

Macey adds, “RAD Torque Systems also provides custom reaction arms to customers with an ideal reaction point for repetitive usage, which is a plus for many customers.”

Maxpro Corporation is in Horsham, Pennsylvania. They have a 12,000 square foot facility for distribution, repair, calibration, and service. This facility is ready to support all RAD Torque product needs.
