What is Torque?

Posted by Mountz Torque March 16th, 2011    

WHAT Is TORQUE? Torque is a “turning” or “twisting” force and differs from tension, which is created by a straight pull. However, we use torque to create a tension. HOW? As the nut and bolt are tightened, the two plates are clamped together. The thread angle in the bolt converts the force applied into tension […]

 

Electronics Manufacturing Company Establishes a Torque Tool Auditing System

Posted by Mountz Torque February 23rd, 2011    

An electronics manufacturing company uses torque testers along with benched mounted torque sensors to audit 150+ pneumatic torque tools on a daily basis. Each pneumatic tool has bar-code on it, which identifies the tool. A unique tool test (torque setting and tolerance setting) is set-up for each pneumatic tool and stored inside the PTT torque […]
