Applying too much force while tightening a fastener can result in over-stretching a bolt, stripping a screw, breaking a screw head, or damaging the threads.
Implementing a solution that prevents over-torque events is critical for engineers to reduce scrap rate costs. Applying the right amount of torque to each fastener maximizes its holding potential. Over torquing a fastener generates risks of fastening failures and damaged products.
A torque wrench is built with a mechanism to limit the amount of torque an operator applies. The type of torque limiting mechanism is what separates different torque wrench technology. Cam-over wrench technology safeguards against fastening failures and enhances the reliability of the fastening process.
In this webinar, our product specialist David Cash will teach you three ways to prevent over-torque failures with cam-over wrench technology. His tips will help you improve the manufacturing process and productivity by consistently applying the correct torque value to each fastener.
