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 […]

How to Calibrate a Click Wrench

“Click” “type wrenches are the most widely used torque product in the world. When the set torque is reached, a click wrench typically emits an audible “click” and a slight moment of release of up to three degrees, before going positive. After the “click”, an operator should stop pulling as torque is achieved and the […]

 

Verify and Validate the Torque Output of a Pulse Tool

Posted by Mountz Torque November 20th, 2013    

Built for high production environments, FlexPower pulse tools provide durability, power and speed for most industrial assembly applications. To maintain consistent accuracy, the torque output for pulse tools must be verified periodically. You should also validate the actual torque being applied to the fastener by auditing the joint application. The goal for auditing is to […]
