With the OPEXplus digital torque wrench, Bosch Rexroth has added a particularly economical new product to its existing range of tightening solutions. With the new solution, both the torque and the angle of rotation can be measured. It covers a range of torques from 3 to 800 Nm and transfers the tightening results to any IT system with no need for additional control.
The new torque tools set new standards when it comes to accuracy and allow fatigue-free work because of an advanced ergonomic design. OPEXplus torque tools identify in networks via the embedded WiFi module. When a tool in an assembly line is changed, the module can simply be plugged into the new screwdriver. The supplied software allows parameterization via a hotspot, the customer network or a serial interface.
The intelligent OPEXplus transmits the tightening results with a tightening curve and the maximum torque and angle of rotation directly to any of the user’s IT systems without additional control.
To make this possible, OPEXplus supports popular protocols such as OpenProtocol, IPM or XML. A standard 21700 lithium-ion rechargeable cell, which is available throughout the world supplies the power. Thanks to an optical aiming device, the camera-based scanner of the ergonomically optimized torque and angle-controlled wrench allows barcodes and QR codes to be read in and transferred to higher-level systems quickly and correctly.
An LED display ring on the handle is visible from all directions and shows the tightening process and the tightening result. A vibration module providing touch confirmation is optionally available. The color display allows the torque and angle-controlled wrench to be operated intuitively. The tool housing is made of a durable titanium-aluminum alloy with an anti-slip handle cover.
