Segment Arm for Calibrating Torque Testers & Sensors

Details

Calibration is the method of comparing tools and measuring devices to higher accuracy standards. Torque calibration equipment is the official means by which torque testers and sensors are calibrated and are traceable to National or International Standards, such as N.I.S.T and ISO.


A torque analyzer or a torque sensor are a finely tuned instrument designed for testing and monitoring torque applications. In order to maintain accuracy, it is crucial that torque measuring equipment be properly calibrated regularly.


Torque calibration equipment for torque testers or torque sensor includes a either a segment arm or calibration wheel, as well as weights to create a known torque load. This is expressed in the formula "Torque equals force times distance". Mountz offers various segment arm lengths for different torque ranges.
