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.

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.

What is a Hydraulic Torque Wrench and how does it operate?
Robb Precision Tool Services visits Mitutoyo America, Los Angeles for the latest electronic components in precision metrology.
- To implement the new technology Robb Precision Tool Services received educational training at Mitutoyo, the leader in measuring instruments and metrological technology.
- RPTS knows the growing need for higher precision, faster data results, and the ability to store statistics. Robb Precision Tool Services wanted their technicians to have hands on education of these new tools.
- 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.
Robert Robb, owner of Robb Precision Tool Services Inc.
“As the requirements for greater accuracy of precision tools are expected, Mitotoyo is meeting these demands. I have had a relationship with Mitutoyo for over 20 years and trust their knowledge and products.”
As a calibration and repair lab, Robb Precision Tool Services understands the need for continued education. With the higher need for accuracy, training in these new technologies is essential to ensure accurate repair and calibration.
