Abstract

This paper contains the study of optimization of hydraulic torque wrench. The hydraulic torque wrenches are designed to handle the toughest bolting jobs accurately and quickly. In this paper solution for reducing the cost of the tool has been proposed. All models provide a torque accuracy of +/3%.The study was done on square drive hydraulic torque wrench. First designing of the wrench was carried out and then the analysis. The material of the tool is Aluminum alloy T6-7075 and EN-24 for its strength and low cost. Considering the results obtained from the analysis various parts of the wrench where the stresses induced are less compared to others the part is modified and iterated until satisfactory results were achieved. This process helps in finding the optimized design for the hydraulic torque wrench without any failure and with minimum forces acting on the tool.
