The MTX is a low torque sensor designed for calibrating and testing small hand screwdrivers, torque wrenches and power tools. With the sensor’s low profile design, the calibration instrument can also be used for testing automation and robotic fastening applications. These versatile MTX torque sensors are used in conjunction with a torque tester.
A torque sensor is a finely tuned instrument designed for testing and measuring torque. Engineered for torque analysis, validation, verification and calibration, a torque sensor is a laboratory grade instrument that is commonly used for quality control, R&D and tool calibration applications. Using a quality sensor is key for many companies to ensure that the proper torque is being applied. Testing torque is literally a science and not something that can be left to chance.
Designed to perform static torque measurement, the small precision instrument can measure torque in both clockwise and counterclockwise direction. Mountz supplies a free ISO 17025 certification of calibration with the purchase of any new MTX torque sensor. This certificate documents the measurement results from the torque calibration and substantiates the operational readiness of the torque sensor. In addition, it also provides traceability to recognized national and international standards. Mountz offers various MTX models covering a torque range from 1 inch-ounce up to 160 inch-ounces.
Using a quality torque sensor makes a safer world through accuracy and precision. Measuring torque is essential for companies to ensure their product’s quality, safety and reliability isn’t compromised. The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn’t properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently fastened can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners.
