First Movement Torque Testing

Method for Conducting a First Movement Torque Test

Torque is a critical component in manufacturing many products. Once the assembly process is completed, measuring torque isn’t finished. A threaded fastener should be audited to verify the joint has been tightened to the proper torque specification. Verification ensures compliance to quality requirements. Residual torque is the amount of tension that remains in a joint…
