Small torque tools go out of calibration with use. To maintain consistent accuracy, small torque tools must be checked periodically for wear or defective parts. A small power or hand torque tool is a measuring tool that must be properly calibrated and maintained. Torque testing also ensures torque equipment is operating to peak performance and can highlight potential tooling problems before they arise perhaps due to tool wear or broken components. Only Mountz LPX torque sensors provide precision torque testing for these applications.
In the manufacturing and assembly world, tightening, controlling, or measuring torque fasteners is imperative for production efficiency. An inadequately torqued fastener can vibrate or work loose; conversely, if the tension is too high, the fastener can snap or strip its threads. Faced with these problems, manufacturers are realizing that precise torque control can spell the difference between a safe, reliable, and economical product and complete disaster.
Using a quality torque sensor, like the LPX, and a torque tester has become increasingly important for many companies to ensure that proper torque control is being applied and monitored. Testing torque is a science and not something that can be left to chance.
