Tips for Selecting a Preset or Adjustable Torque Screwdriver

There are various “Preset” and “Adjustable” torque screwdrivers, but selecting the correct hand screwdriver for your application depends on your process requirements. Preset torque screwdrivers are ideal for production applications where consistent torque is critical. Adjustable screwdrivers are suitable for fastening applications where quick torque setting adjustments are necessary for fasteners of different sizes. Preset…

Improve Production Quality by Implementing a Screw Counting Process

Fastening regimes with multiple screws are susceptible to fastening failures such as cross-threading, cam-outs, stripped screws, omissions, and unfinished rundowns. A screw counting process is an error-prevention technique that allows an engineer to detect and eliminate costly screw-fastening errors during the assembly process. Monitoring the fastening process allows production managers to correct fastening errors rather…

How the Best Preset Torque Wrenches Make Assembly Lines More Productive

Manufacturing companies must meet high standards for product quality. Products manufactured on assembly lines must be identical. However, fastening every bolt in every product to the same degree is difficult, if not impossible, for an employee to do without mechanical aids. This variability in fastening results demands the intervention of a tool that can control…

How Often Do Torque Tools Require Calibration?

Which force has the most significant effect on our world? Gravity is a strong contender for top dog—it keeps you in your seat, your house on the ground, and the sun in the sky. However, another force affects our world nearly equally: entropy, gravity’s opposite. If gravity is the tendency things have to come together,…
