BIG Kaiser expands range of digital torque wrenchesBIG Kaiser, a leading global provider of premium high-precision tooling systems and solutions for the metalworking industry, has expanded its MEGA Torque Wrench range which features a user-friendly digital interface and interchangeable head sizes for the secure and accurate tightening of collet chucks, as well as multiple settings to ensure the right torque is applied to the clamping of specific cutting tools. Available in the UK from Tamworth-based Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC), these ‘state of the art wrenches’ feature a torque limiter, enabling superior clamping precision for shaft tools and ensuring flawless milling performance.

The new torque wrenches cover diameters up to 60mm, offering even more versatility for customers. The original MEGA Torque Wrenches already cater to diameters ranging from 10 to 46mm and are compatible with BIG Kaiser’s MEGA Micro Chuck, MEGA New Baby Chuck, and MEGA E Chuck.

Additionally, the tooling company introduces the TTL versions of the MEGA Torque Wrench, comprising the MGR 16 TTL, MGR 20 TTL, and MGR 30 TTL models, specifically designed to support diameters from 16 to 30mm. These TTL versions are engineered for BIG Kaiser’s MGR tapping tools, addressing the need for precise torque settings when working with cylindrical shafts.

Giampaolo Roccatello, BIG Kaiser’s chief sales and marketing officer for Europe, said: “Achieving the correct torque during clamping is of utmost importance for the precision of cutting and the surface quality of the workpiece — under- or over-torquing can cause problems.”

In addition to the extended torque wrench range, BIG Kaiser also offers alternative solutions for clamping tools with precise torque. The Digital MEGA Torque Wrench MGR-TL/P simplifies setting the recommended torque for each collet chuck, providing feedback through LED indicators and an easy-to-read display. The handle features vibration and a buzzer that signals when the target torque is reached. Furthermore, the digital torque wrench is available with MGR20 to MGR46 adaptors, and the wrench heads are detachable for use with all kinds of BIG Kaiser tools.

Another option presented by BIG Kaiser is the Torque Fit, a tooling fixture featuring an integrated tightening torque measurement system, designed to be used in combination with the MEGA Roller Wrenches. With preprogrammed torque values for all BIG Kaiser collet chucks, the Torque Fit ensures user-friendly operation, while also allowing users to set their own custom torque values.
