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.

Is Your Weighing or Measuring Device Legal?

Is Your Weighing or Measuring Device Legal?

With increased use of weighing scales in WA state it is essential that the scale is accurately calibrated by a service agent for the Washington State Department of Agriculture.

The WSDA will conduct unannounced inspections. If the scale is inaccurate or fails to meet the criteria, it will be rejected and corrective measures must be made. You must contact a service agent that is registered with the state to have it repaired.

To ensure this does not happen having the scale calibrated every 6 months is critical. This will prevent costly mistakes and down time the scale is out of compliance and cannot be used.

Robb Precision Tool Services is a WSDA Service agent and will calibrate and certify your scale at the highest level of accuracy and provide you with a fast turn around.

To make this an effortless process for you we  provide pick up, delivery and rush service.
