Torque Measurement & Verification
Measuring torque is quintessential for companies to ensure their product's quality, safety and reliability isn't compromised. The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn’t properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently torqued can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners. Using a quality torque measurement tool is important for many companies to ensure that proper torque is being applied and maintained for their quality requirements.
Measuring torque is like fine-tuning the torque control process in a production or testing environment. A torque measurement should be checked periodically to determine whether torque tools are operating at their proper settings or no variables have changed within the fastening application.
