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.

Torque Wrench Checking Made Affordable and Simple to Use

Do you know if your torque wrench is out of tolerance?

Mechanical and electronic torque wrenches require regular calibration because the internal mechanisms can wear, fatigue or become jolted out of accuracy by a drop or misuse.

CDI, a In Snap-on Industrial Brands has created the New DTC Digital Torque Checker. This new technology offers quick, accurate and affordable way to check your torque wrenches as easy as 1-2-3, taking only a few minutes. Simply mount torque checker close to each department where torque wrenches are used,attach the torque wrench to the checker and the accuracy will be displayed on the digital screen.

Features of this new digital torque checker:

  • +- 1% Accuracy
  • 1/2″ dr. 25-250 ft.lbs.
  • Runs on 3 “AA” batteries
  • Includes 3/8″ adapter
  • Features excerciser socket
  • Adjustable sleep timer
  • Track peak and first peak torque force.

The video below will show you the benefits and how to use the Snap-on torque checker which is the same as the CDI Snap-on Industrial brands DTC torque checker.

  • 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.

What is A2LA ISO/IEC 17025 Accredited Calibration?    

 

 A2LA:

A2LA stands for the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation. It is a nonprofit 3rd party institution that accredits calibration labs and preforms thorough assessment of all factors of testing and calibration to the ISO 17025 standard.  A2LA laboratories are audited regularly to ensure their continued compliance with requirements and to check that their standard of operation is being maintained.  Lab technicians may be required to take part in comprehensive and ongoing intense testing to ensure the most recent methods are being followed.

ISO/IEC:

Is the most important standard for calibration and testing laboratories around the world. Laboratories that are accredited to this international standard are required to include factors which determine the correctness and reliability of the tests and calibrations preformed in the laboratory by a qualified technician.  Factors that are included are environment control; equipment and measurement traceability;  testing methodology; and reporting of test and calibration results.

The benefits of  A2LA ISO/IEC 17025 certification:

  • To ensure that calibration and testing are accurate and reliable.
  • Laboratories comply with internationally recognized standard.
  • Increase confidence in Testing and Calibration.
  • Save costs on an incorrect indication. Which can cause rework, scrapped product , product recall or injury.

 

Robb Precision Tool is an accredited A2LA ISO/IEC 17025 laboratory.
