Torque Arms have 2 roles:
- They are made to absorb the torque that is generated during the process of tightening
- Torque arms provide the necessary lift so that the nutrunner floats at all times on the end of the torque arm, following naturally horizontally and vertically.
At Givens Lifting Systems, all our torque arms are specially manufactured to float on air and are exceptionally easy to maneuver. In general, the arm itself is mass-produced and stocked. The toolholder however, is custom-made for the specific application at hand. The toolholder can be very simple or can be more complex and include brakes or other unique functionalities.
