Expanding production of bolting technology at M-PT
26. April 2022
With a symbolic turn of the sod founder Michael Matjeschk and managing director Carmen Hebestreit have started together with the M-PT team the construction of a new facility. The expansion is necessary, because there is no longer enough space for production and offices. The unique feature of the company is the complete in-house production of high-torquing tools. This begins at the development and assembly of the control board of battery-powered torque wrenches (up to 7.000Nm), electric torque wrenches (up to 11.000Nm) as well as of hydraulic pumps with data logging. In close cooperation with the manufacturer RAD Torque Systems in Canada, high-quality bolting technology with accuracies starting at 1,0% are produced at M-PT in their production facility, assembly halls and calibration laboratory.

LIEBHERR certification of the battery torque wrenches MAD (MB-RAD)
30. July 2021
The global crane manufacturer LIEBHERR has approved the battery-operated torque wrenches of the MAD (MB-RAD) series for crane assemblies. This opens up new technical possibilities for the assembly companies to quickly and safely produce the HSFG bolted connections on the tower.
After extensive machine capability analysis and EMC tests of the torque wrenches in the torque range of 140-7,000Nm, the LIEBHERR standard “Technical Information” now also includes the battery torque wrenches MAD (MB-RAD). The use of non-approved torque wrenches for tower assembly is not permitted.
The MAD (MB-RAD) has a repeatability of ±2,8% and can be used reliably at ambient temperatures down to -20°C without warming up. Thanks to the brushless electric motor, torque/angle controlled shut-off and limit value monitoring, the MAD (MB-RAD) works extremely precisely and is even up to 60% faster than a hydraulic torque wrench.
The torque wrench can optionally be equipped with data logging or a torque check function for maintenance work.

Hydraulic pump series HEM 7 with data logging
2. July 2021
Have you ever worked with a hydraulic pump without a torque table?
The electric hydraulic pump of the HEM 7 series was developed by M-PT for the operation of hydraulic torque wrenches. We are pleased to be able to offer you the HEM 7 series with an optional Documentation System – completely without a torque table.
Hydraulic pump series HEM 7 is available in three versions:
- Standard version with simple remote control and torque table
- Extended version with digital remote control and torque table
- Extended version with digital remote control and Documentation System
With the Documentation System, a torque table is no longer required, as the target torque is set directly on the digital remote control in 1Nm steps. This also increases process reliability, since possible sources of error when reading from a torque table or when setting the pressure on the manometer cannot even arise. All available hydraulic torque wrenches are stored in the hydraulic pump along with the calibration data. The bolting result (OK/NOK) is displayed in color on the remote control. When the work is done, the data can be transferred to a PC via Bluetooth and archived as a PDF, CSV or Excel file. The Documentation System thus guarantees reliable and seamless quality assurance.

M-PT is exclusive RAD distributor for Germany
4. March 2021
RAD Torque Systems is a globally known manufacturer of battery-powered, electric and pneumatic torque wrenches. On January 1st 2021 RAD Torque Systems authorized M-PT Matjeschk-PowerTools as the sole German sales and service partner for its products. This will intensify the long-term business relationship with RAD. The last few years have shown that a cooperation between the two manufacturers produces customer-oriented and high-quality bolting technology.
M-PT is looking forward to the future with RAD!
So that our customers can orientate themselves more easily, M-PT has decided to adapt all product names to the RAD designation. This particularly applies to torque wrenches with the electronics developed by M-PT.
The name changes – the tool remains the same.
The battery torque wrench MAD is called MB-RAD and
the electric torque wrench MED is called MV-RAD.

New Scanner Function for MB-RAD and MV-RAD (former MAD and MED)
15. December 2020
As of now, torque wrenches of the MB-RAD and MV-RAD (former MAD and MED) series can also connect to a barcode scanner via Bluetooth. Data no longer have to be typed in, but can be conveniently scanned using a barcode or QR code:
- Worker-ID: scan in the worker ID from the ID card and assign it to the torque wrench.
- Serial number: scan the serial number of a component into the documentation and thus assign the bolted connection data to a specific component.
- Preset torque values: attach preset torque values as cards with QR codes to assembly lines and scan them in quickly and easily. The torque wrench then adopts the stored parameters, such as torque, angle, upper and lower limits, etc.
The Scanner Function can be purchased separately or as part of the smart Documentation System from M-PT:
a software for the reliable recording and transfer of tightening and loosening processes. After work, the data can easily be transferred to your PC via Bluetooth and archived as a PDF, CSV or Excel file. The Documentation System guarantees reliable and seamless quality assurance.
ProTight™ worker guidance system
3. November 2020
The ProTight™ worker guidance system for assembly workstations
- documents all bolting results and
- guides the worker in the bolting work in production.
The ProTight™ worker guidance system shows the required work steps and the bolting sequence. The software communicates with the torque wrench and transmits individual torque or angle values for each bolt. ProTight™ checks whether all bolts have been tightened correctly according to the specifications and detects, for example, if bolts have been forgotten or tightened twice. All data is logged.

Sensor-controlled battery torque wrench B-RAD S (former MAD-S)
21. October 2019
We proudly present our new sensor-controlled battery-powered torque wrench B-RAD S (former MAD-S). Our battery-series is extended by a sensor-controlled shut-off. Thereby the tool is insensitive to environmental influences, such as friction, temperature or joint hardness. The torque is measured on the square drive, that means directly on the socket of the tool. Mechanical alterations of the tool, e.g. wear on the gear, do not influence the bolting results. With this torquing tool one can tighten bolts by category A according to VDI/VDE 2862-2.
See for yourself!

Hydraulic Pump with Digital Pressure Indicator – Series HEM
8. October 2019
At the end of the year M-PT will finish further development projects. This includes our new pump for hydraulic torque wrenches. Today we want to present you this hydraulic pump HEM.
One decisive innovation is the modificated automatic mode. We were able to increase the bolting speed significantly. Furthermore the new hydraulic pump can be delivered with digital function. This is an additional option to display the pressure digitally on the remote control.
Another option, which will be offered soon, is the documentation system. Right now our development department does the final tests on this. With the documentation system the torque can be set directly on the pump, whereby the process reliability will be increased. The stored data of torque wrenches and calibration can be selected on the digital remote control. A torque table is not necessary any more.

Husum WIND 2017
25. September 2017
Two weeks ago the wind exhibition took place in Husum. The follow-up keeps M-PT busy, to finish all quotations and answer further questions as quick as possible.
We thank the numerous visitors for the interesting discussions about special bolting applications, difficulties in unique situations as well as all suggestions to improve our bolting technology. Together we want to find the perfect bolting solution for each individual customer. Therefore we are very open-minded towards ideas and suggestions, but also towards criticism.
Unfortunately, our stand was not opened on the 13.09.17, due to the red weather warnings. We feel sorry, if visitors did suffer any disadvantages. We hope, that all visitors could still clarify their questions and achieve their planned objectives.
The new product catalog from M-PT, which was presented at Husum WIND, can be downloaded online from the homepage.
