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.

Robb Precision Tool Services Visits the Largest Private Labeled Torque Manufacture in the World: CDI Torque Products

As the demand for accuracy increases, at an outstanding rate, so does the technology in Torque Products.  To better help their customers meet this demand; Robb Precision visited one of the pioneers in the development of digital torque measurement systems, CDI, a Snap-on owned company.

The technicians received hands on training and education on the new line of Electronic Torque Wrenches and the cutting edge DTC Torque checker.

An exciting new torque tool is the portable DTC Torque Checker. This torque checker is designed to be affordable and enables torque wrench users to conveniently and simply check mechanical and digital torque wrenches for accuracy between calibration cycles, close to where they are used and stored. The DTC features 3 modes of operation, runs on three AA batteries and has a +/- accuracy. Other features include first peak, peak hold and tracking, ft/inch lb and NM and many other options.

The technicians also received training on the state-of-the art digital torque wrenches. These torque wrenches offer the most accurate and fastest way to tighten fasteners in a sequence, with audible beep and vibration that alert you when target torque is achieved.  Most of these torque wrenches have an easy-to-use plug and play software solution and highly programmable features.

Robert Robb, owner “Continued education is essential to meet the demands for increased accuracy and performance. I have had a relationship with CDI, a Snap on owned company for 20 years and became the first stocking distributor of CDI torque products in the United States in 2003. CDI is the largest manufacturer of Torque products in the world and I believe are the best in the industry.”

As a calibration and repair laboratory as well as a sales distributor for CDI products, Robb Precision Tool Services believes it is important to implement the latest in technology of torque products to meet the needs of the metrology industry, including Aerospace, Automotive, Marine and Manufacturing.

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.”

Calibration of weighing scales from ounces to 20,000 lbs.

Robb Precision Tool Services is now certified to calibrate any type of scale from a few ounces to 20,000 lbs.

com scale                                              scale (1)

Scale calibration is used to ensure that your weight scale is providing correct information. Scales that are used frequently become worn out and will give an incorrect reading. You cannot afford to have a situation where you thought the weight was correct and found out later it was not. A2LA Accredited Calibration ensures your reading is always correct to avoid this costly mistake.

A scale that is used commercially may need calibration every few months. Although, If your scale is not used for heavy complicated units, calibration should be done every 6 months to ensure that your scale is giving a correct weight.
