Tightening up the tube

Tightening up the tube

GTL has won a contract to supply London Underground with tools from across our range which will be used for essential track maintenance and installation work. Obviously safety is of paramount importance on a public transport network and the precision of GTL's tools will be helping to ensure that passengers are safe while they use the tube.

The particular design of the GTL tools chosen by London Underground will enable precise application in the confined spaces of the tube. Features such as GTL's patented microprocessor-controlled switch-off electronics can detect hard and soft tightening operations, and these tools are also the first of their kind to generate precise torques up to 6000 N.m. without slip coupling and impact mechanism.

GTL is delighted to be helping to keep London on the move in the future.
