Measuring torque is essential for manufacturers to ensure their product's quality, safety, and reliability isn't compromised. The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn't properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent torque failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently torqued can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners.
Companies that rely on torque tools can reduce lost product and product liability by regularly testing tools with torque sensors. By keeping torque tools in calibration, companies reduce the risk of product failure before or after a product leaves the factory by preventing over-or under-tightened fasteners. Testing torque is a science and not something that can be left to chance.
