What is a Torque Tester?

A torque tester is used as a quality control device to test or calibrate torque controlled tools. This includes electronic torque wrenches, click torque wrenches, dial torque wrenches, electric screwdrivers, air screwdrivers, pulse tools, cordless screwdrivers, nutrunners, and torque screwdrivers

To ensure safety and reliability of torque wrenches and torque instruments it is essential the technicians are educated on proper use. Using a quality torque tester correctly makes a safer world through accuracy and precision. Preventing scrapped work, product recall or injury.

Robert Robb, owner. ” Customers want it quick and easy to check for accuracy of their torque wrenches, but don’t know the correct way to use the torque tester. I saw the need for educating the technicians and I decided to offer to them and train the employees how to use it correcly. ”

A representative from our A2LA certified laboratory will perform the training from mounting the tester correctly to downloading the stored torque data to the PC. They will receive a certification of completion as an authorized person to test and calibrate torque instruments, including torque wrenches, manufactured by Snap-on/CDI.

High Demand for Thread Plug and Thread Ring Gage Calibration by an Accredited Labratory

RPTS meets the need for higher accuracy and more frequent calibration of thread plug and thread ring gages.

Thread plug and thread ring gages are used to check measurement of pitch and diameter of threaded items.  Many companies are seeing costly mistakes and product recall due to these gages giving an incorrect measurement. To prevent these mistakes companies are requiring frequent calibration at higher accuracy to ensure the product delivered to the customer is an efficient and accurate tool.

RPTS recommends thread plug, thread ring gages and any precision instruments be calibrated by an accredited calibration laboratory with long form certification traceable to N.I.S.T. (National Institute and Technology) to ensure all gages meet the required industry standard. It is critical that these gages are calibrated on a regular cycle. This cycle depends on the amount of use and if the thread plug and thread ring gages that have been dropped or impacted. RPTS suggests an annual calibration, setting a date every year to have your gages calibrated.

Robb Precision Tool Services is an A2LA Accredited Calibration Laboratory that follows ANSI/ISO/IEC17025:2000 and will provide a long form calibration certificate traceable to N.I.S.T. standards for all thread plug and thread ring. A long form certificate lists in detail all of the characteristics needed to ensure conformance. All thread plug and thread ring gages are calibrated by a trained technician in temperature controlled laboratory.

  • The techs were educated on 2D Linear Height gages, Portable Roughness testers,Digital Micrometers and Calipers, Digital Indicators, Depth Measurement systems, Optical Comparators and Vision Systems, Calibration Equipment and many more.

 

  • The technicians were also introduced to the new Wireless Communication System that can be used on any tool that provides Digimatic data output. Such as, the Digimatic Caliper,Digimatic Micrometer, Digimatic Indicator and Digimatic Height Gauge.  The Wireless system will eliminate the need for data cables when sending measurements to a PC. This new technology will make it easier, smoother and more efficient without the cumbersome data cables.

Optical Comparator Calibration

Robb Precision Tool Services has recently purchased an Optical Comparator which will expand their extensive calibration capabilities to include Radius Gages, Thread Pitch Gages, Thread Mic Standards and other various other gages.

An Optical Comparator is an inspection machine that projects magnified images up to 50x its actual size. The images are put onto a glass screen using illumination sources, lenses and mirrors giving a 2-D measurement. This process allows the technician to measure using the latest technology and error free inspection giving a detailed calibration certification, conforming to the International Standard ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and traceable to NIST.

PH-3515F_QMThe Optical Comparator also allows the technicians to see scratches, indentations and various imperfections. Many calibration laboratories use the general measurement of a caliper or micrometer, using this method it is impossible to see these imperfections and can be a costly and timely mistake.

If the reference gage is out of tolerance and cannot be calibrated, a new gage is necessary. Robb Precision Tool is a distributor for Mitutoyo USA and can replace the gage, saving time and money.

Robert Robb, owner “We started to receive gages from other calibration labs that were not using an optical comparator, only their trained eye and a caliper. Using this process it is impossible give an accurate reading. We purchased the comparator to give our customers a correct and detailed certification.”
