Measuring torque doesn’t stop once the assembly process is complete. Often a torque verification process is needed. Torque auditing validates the fastening process, the torque tool, the product design and the materials used for the application.
The Mountz SDX torque sensor is an instrument designed for torque auditing, verification or tightening fasteners. The SDX sensor connects to a torque tester and is used to accurately audit the residual torque on a previously tightened fastener. With a torque analyzer, you can capture and store the data results from the torque tests and then download the data to a PC. The sensor is used for three common torque verification tests: first movement test, loosening test or a marking test.
The torque sensor is small and compact and has an ergonomic rubber grip. Mountz offers two models covering a torque range capacity from 1 – 50 inch-pounds. The SDX instrument features a built-in overload protection and contains the Mountz ARC II technology, which is an instant auto-recognition system of the sensor when mated to the Mountz FTA, LTT or PTT torque testers.
Built for torque evaluation and verification the SDX torque sensor is a laboratory grade instrument that is commonly used for quality control and R&D torque applications. Testing torque with a quality torque sensor is key for many companies to ensure that the proper torque is being applied. Measuring torque is literally a science and not something that can be left to chance.
Using a quality torque sensor makes a safer world through accuracy and precision. Controlling 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.
