Torque measurement is of great importance to applications where exact amount of torque is needed.
What happens at the measurement of "torque"?
The example of tightening a screw illustrates: Torque is equal to what the connection of a screw and bolt opposes to the process of tightening. The opposing energy is measured by torque measurement.
Whether in aerospace, aviation, shipbuilding and in countless other industrial branches - proper torque determines a good connection. In some cases, absolute precision and special tools are required. Snap-on provides tools that allow you to provide the exact amount of torque at any time. As an expert in establishing torque tools, Snap-on sets standards in the field of safety, precision and control.
Products with torque sensors, advanced measurement technology and software take over the regulation of power over a wide range of applications. Among other things, measuring is an important factor in the automotive sector. Alloy rims and other components require a specific torque for fastening. Too much force can be harmful and lead to defective guiding. When it comes to wheel mounting, compressed air drills offer an adjustable maximum torque that prevents such damage.
The electronic measurement is carried out with precise stationary or mobile tools. These include torque transducers (sensors) with integrated strain gauges and provide high accuracy in measurement.
The Snap-on product range is extremely broad. Ergonomic design, custom-built applications, unrivaled comfort, reliability and durability help you to be able to do the job perfectly.
Basically, electrical torque tools should be calibrated regularly. Dropping, improper use, or severe wear may cause readings to be lost in precision. A special test tool is used for this. Snap-on calibrates the torque tools to restore precision.
