Introduction to Torque Measuring Tools

WHAT ARE TORQUE MEASURING TOOLS USED FOR?

  • Torque Measuring Tools are used in many manufacturing and engineering businesses to check,determine or apply the correct level of Torque. They perform a crucial role in Audit,Inspection,Production,Quality control,Research & development and servicing environments.

WHAT TYPES OF TOOLS ARE THERE FOR MEASURING TORQUE?

  • Torque Measuring Tools have a dial or digital readout. They can be a Torque Screwdriver or Digital/Dial Measuring Torque Wrench design. They enable the operator to read directly from the dial or readout as the Torque is applied.
  • The Gedore Torque range of Dial Measuring Torque Wrenches is designed to verify or monitor torque, in order to ensure process conformity, product safety and absolute reliability.

  • The torque can be measured as it is applied (Track mode) or when the maximum torque value has been reached (Peak mode)

WHAT ARE THE THREE TYPES OF QUALITY AUDITING TEST THAT UTILISE TORQUE
MEASURING TOOLS?

  •  Measurement. This is used to verify the Torque value of a previously tightened fastener. A clear mark is made on the surface of the nut,bolt or screw and continued onto the surface being clamped. This acts as a reference point. The fastener must then be untightened and then retightened until the marks are again in line. The torque value can then be read from the Torque Tool display.

  • Just Move Test. This test is used to determine the torque setting of a previously tightened fastener. Using a torque measuring tool, a tightening torque is applied to the fastener until movement is just seen or felt. This torque is deemed to be a good indication of the original torque applied to the fastener.

  • Break Loose Test. This is used for checking the torque applied to a previously tightened fastener. Torque is applied in the direction that loosens the fastener, at the point the fastener breaks loose, the torque is recorded. This value is an indication of the torque at which the fastener was originally tightened and is typically 20-30% lower than the tightening torque.
