You don’t want to be surprised by a torque wrench or torque screwdriver deemed “out of calibration.” After all, torque tools are precision instruments used to tighten critical, often safety-sensitive fasteners.
Torque screwdrivers and wrenches go out of calibration with use. These hand tools should be tested and calibrated frequently based on the tool usage cycle to maintain consistent tool performance and accuracy.
Companies can avoid costly dips in product quality and production delays by developing a calibration plan and investing in torque measurement equipment to carry it out. Calibration compares a tool’s accuracy standard to a traceable National or International Standard, such as N.I.S.T. and ISO. Calibrating a torque tool ensures quality process control and mitigates risks.
You can learn more about the calibration process and international standard requirements for a torque screwdriver or wrench from this webinar.
