Great description, benefits, proper wrench for the job and how to use.
Both mechanical and electronic torque wrenches require calibration to receive complete accuracy preventing costly errors. The internal mechanism of the torque wrench can wear, be misused and commonly handled roughly. A torque tester is an a easy conveinant option to ensure consistent accuracy. Torque wrenches are commonly used by several operators. Some may over torque or drop the tool. Over time the torque wrench is giving an incorrect reading and the operator is not aware. With the torque tester you can regularly check the torque wrench. It is a simple, conveinant solution. The checker can be mounted close to wear the torque wrenches are used and stored.
We have found the CDI Digital Torque Tester to be the best. It has many options, is simple to use and is small enough to be mounted just about anywhere.
The features include:
- A range from: 25-250 ft. lbs.
- Function modes: track, first peak and peak.
- Scales in: in. lbs./ ft. lbs/ Nm
- Driving size: 1/2″ (with 3/8″ adapter)
- Mounting: 4x 5/16″ bolt pattern.
- Track: displays torque wrench force as it’s applied and released.
- First Peak: displays the torque force at the “click” of mechanical wrenches, to check their accuracy.
- Peak: displays maximum torque force applied at the wrench. Used to compare digital wrench accuracy and for training torque wrench users in proper technique
The torque tester can save thousands of dollars due to an incorrect reading. It is an easy solution to a costly mistake.
This is a great informative video I found on YouTube to help make the best decision for you on your next torque wrench purchase.

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.

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.
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.
