Torque Wrench – careless torque cost lives

Torque Wrenches, Torque Tools, Nut Runners are widely used in aerospace, automotive, oil & gas to apply specific torque to a fastener where the tightness of nuts, bolts or screws are crucial.

Calibration is critical to accurately register the torque applied to a given fastener.

Over-tightened fastener can cause deform or breakage to product in use. Lesser torque applied may cause fastener to loose when in operation – causing dangerous repercussions to the product or anyone near. It’s critical to know the exact torque value delivered.

Factors such as frequency of use, handling/mishandling and storage conditions will have great influence on calibration interval needed.

ISO 6789 specify torque wrenches should be calibrated at 30%, 60% and 100% of range, for both clockwise and counterclockwise direction, once every 5,000 cycles or 12 months, whichever comes first. If the torque found to be out of calibration, it must adjust to set tolerance.

Commonly calibrated brands Atlas Copco, Britool, Hi-Force, Norbar, Snap-On, Tohnichi etc.

Metcal can provide both laboratory and on-site torque wrench calibration services, with capability up to 1500 N.m for clockwise and counterclockwise, best uncertainty +/-0.007 N.m.

Torque Wrench calibration is accredited to ISO 17025 – based on ISO 6789 standard.
