Calibration Hex Step Adapter

Calibration Hex Step Adapter for Testing Open End Wrenches

When calibrating or testing torque wrenches, often adapters are needed. Especially wrenches with open-end heads. Testing wrenches with different open end sizes will mean you need a variety of different size adapters. Why waste time with searching for different size adapters? The time needed to remove and insert different size adapters is unnecessary. An adapter…

Quality Torque Control Program

Six Tips for Establishing a Quality Torque Control Program

In the manufacturing and assembly world, tightening, controlling, and measuring torque are imperative for production efficiency and reducing manufacturing costs. A fastener inadequately tightened can vibrate or work loose: conversely, if the tension is too high, the fastener can snap or strip its threads. Faced with these problems, manufacturers are realizing that precise torque control…

Low Torque Sensors

Measuring Low Torque

Small torque tools are precision instruments designed to accurately and repeatedly tighten fasteners to a proper torque value. Overtime, all torque tools start to drift out of tolerance. Preventative maintenance and regular torque calibration cycles will ensure repeatable accuracy and adherence to international standards. Having reliable tools will increase productivity, reduce rejection rates and make…

Torque Testing with the FTA-100 Torque Analyzer

Often, regular tool calibration is forgotten, ignored or delayed. Similar to routine car maintenance, periodic servicing is necessary or repairs can become quite expensive. All torque tools must be properly calibrated and maintained on a preventative maintenance and calibration schedule. Calibrating a hand or power torque tool is process that manufacturers need to ensure occurs…
