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…

Measuring Torque: 10 Basic Questions to Ask When Selecting a Torque Tester

Testing torque is an essential component in the manufacturing environment for many companies. Measuring torque is a process that is often neglected or misunderstood, which may lead to the incorrect torque measurement equipment being selected or used for torque testing applications. All torque testers can be used to measure torque. There are various types of torque…

Verify and Validate the Torque Output of a Pulse Tool

Built for high production environments, FlexPower pulse tools provide durability, power and speed for most industrial assembly applications. To maintain consistent accuracy, the torque output for pulse tools must be verified periodically. You should also validate the actual torque being applied to the fastener by auditing the joint application. The goal for auditing is to…
