Cam Over Torque Wrenches

Cam-Over Torque Wrenches Reduce Fastening Failures

Fasteners and bolts are commonly used to securely clamp two or more items together. Although these components seem like a small part of the design and assembly process, it shouldn’t minimize their importance. Improperly tightening fasteners can unknowingly cause catastrophic or latent failures. Lack of torque control for fastening applications has caused wheel detachment on…

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…
