EZl-Glider Linear Torque Arms

The daily repetitive process of fastening screw after screw with a power tool exposes operators to the risk of injury. An assembly operator freely holding and using a power tool is an opportunity for cross threading and side load to occur, which causes fastening failures. Implementing an ergonomic torque arm into the assembly process will […]

Loosening Torque Test Method

Every time a fastener is used to form a joint between two parts, torque control is a key element of that formula. Ensuring a well-tightened fastener is installed properly to the pre-defined torque specification will determine the success or failure of a product. Torque testing is key to identifying and reducing fastening failures. A lack […]

First Movement Torque Testing

Torque is a critical component in manufacturing many products. Once the assembly process is completed, measuring torque isn’t finished. A threaded fastener should be audited to verify the joint has been tightened to the proper torque specification. Verification ensures compliance to quality requirements. Residual torque is the amount of tension that remains in a joint […]

Dial Torque Wrenches

Every day we go about our lives, unaware of the vital role torque plays in our safety. Tightening down a bolt until it “feels tight” is no way to guarantee quality and safety. A proper production and quality assurance system is needed to ensure products and services meet today’s high demands. A dial torque wrench […]

Position Control Torque Arm System

Specifying a fastening sequence is a¬†good manufacturing procedure to implement for many assembly projects. It can be critical for key torque applications. The wrong sequence could cause manufacturing failures and add additional rework expenses. The sequence of tightening bolts or screws can have a major influence on the resulting preloads. A good tightening sequence ensures […]
