Torque Turn

The R&D Solutions torque turn machine is a fully rotational torque bucking machine supplied by Forum Technologies. It is a self-contained, free-standing, hydraulically powered unit that is designed for fast and accurate makeup and breakout of premium and non-premium threaded tubular equipment.

The machine can handle up to a maximum torque of 100,000 ft-lb tracking thread, and run in from as low as 200 ft-lb. The unit consists of a fixed headstock and a traversing tailstock. The tailstock has a spring design for picking up a lower torque range and providing a balanced make-up on smaller OD equipment. The top-opening feature assists with loading tools safely and efficiently. Both heads feature hydraulically controlled clamp cylinders that range from 2 3/8” to 22”. OD, or up to the machine’s maximum diameter, without necessarily needing to change jaws between sizes. This reduces downtime and minimises safety hazards associated with changing jaws manually.
