  • Loosening Torque Test Method
    Every time a fastener is used to form a joint between two parts, torque control is a key element of that formula. Ensuring a well-tightened fastener is installed properly to the pre-defined torque specification will determine the success or failure of a product. Torque testing is key to identifying
  • Performing the Marking Torque Test Method
    Controlling torque is a critical element for tightening threaded fasteners. Validating that a screw or bolt is properly installed ensures quality performance and reduces failures. The process to measure torque is relatively easy. It can be conducted either dynamically during the fastening process
  • How to Test Torque Devices With Ease and Precision
    Lindstrom now offers a torque tester that is affordable, accurate and easy to use over a wide range of torque devices and torque settings.
  • Torque measuring in calibration lab on the test bench
    . According to the report, 60 percent of the recalls were the result of mechanical defects. At 17.3 percent, vehicle brake systems are frequently affected. An example from April 2009: an incorrect torque was the probable cause of a recall, in which 10,000 owners were obliged to return their compact cars
  • The Checking and Calibration of Torque Wrenches (.pdf)
    In this article we will look in more detail at the ways of testing the performance of hand held torque wrenches. Starting with a reminder about the different types of torque wrench, the article will explain the difference between checking and calibration and the stages of calibration including
  • Tightening Bolted Joints with Torque Tools
    and the bolts preload. A calibrated torque tool should therefore be used for the final tightening operation or inspection. Specify the correct tightening torque: Whenever feasible, specify the tightening torque based upon actual test results rather than a theoretically calculated value. Experimental
  • Force/torque sensors help industrial robots make the right moves
    Knowing what load levels robots exert is key to more repeatable, safer operation. Feedback from force/torque sensors (black cylinder mounted on arm end) gives robots the delicate touch needed for operations such as this camera function test. An industrial PC controls the robot and documents test
  • How to Test an RF Coaxial Cable using a VNA
    RF coaxial cables are high precision test assemblies, which along with a calibration kit, adapters and a torque wrench ensure the integrity of the measurements taken by test equipment such as a Vector Network Analyzer. An ideal cable transfers maximum RF energy while incurring as little loss
  • Load Cell Application - Car Door Test
    In this particular application, a car door is being tested. This test can be used to determine whether or not the door could function for a certain time period, or how long it will last before it fails. It works by using the hydraulic / pneumatic actuator to open and close the door within a given
  • Production Test: Monitoring a Metal Stamping Press
    CAS DataLoggers recently provided the real-time data acquisition solution for an automotive manufacturer using metal stamping presses to shape their torque converters. Stamping was used to create a series of indentations that held metal vanes used to transmit the power from the engine
  • WHITFORD TEST METHOD 111L:DIP SPIN APPLICATION OF 5000 SERIES PRODUCTS
    This method explains the procedure for applying a Xylan 5000 series coating to bolts for subsequent salt spray or torque tension testing.
  • Application Note: Bolt Fastening for Aerospace & Manufacturing
    An Aerospace Company was working on a test plan that involved taking torque & compression measurements on fasteners with varying joint materials. The system required both high and low sampling rates, in addition to the capability of precisely measuring force and torque simultaneously. They required
  • 2003 Lincoln LS
    Having had the good fortune to drive a Lincoln LS every year since its 2000 model debut, I looked forward to experiencing how Lincoln engineers had improved the 2003 version. Our test vehicle carried the standard V6 engine, which gets an extra 12 hp to provide 232 hp and 220 lb-ft torque, a 5 lb-ft
