  • Selecting the Proper Torque Wrench
    There are a wide variety of Preset and Adjustable torque wrenches and selecting the shape and size for your application can be easy. However, understanding the variety of torque delivery mechanisms of torque wrenches can be confusing. A Preset torque wrench is similar to a person setting an alarm
  • Preventive Maintenance for a Torque Wrench
    To maintain consistent accuracy, torque wrenches must be checked periodically for wear or defective parts. A properly structured preventive maintenance program optimizes tool performance and reduces unexpected downtime, thereby saving time and money. The more often a torque wrench is used
  • Understand, Maintain and Service Your Torque Wrench
    In the maintenance and manufacturing world, tightening, controlling, or measuring torque of fasteners is imperative for production efficiency and quality control. With inadequate torque a fastener can vibrate or work loose. Conversely, if the torque is too high, the fastener can break, strip
  • Tightening of Large Counter Weights on Equipment with Torque Wrench
    Product Support Engineer from a Medical Manufacturer needed to develop a process that would assure system installation contractors could tighten large bolts on a 4000 lb rotating counterweight to a torque specification of 750 lbf ft. Accessibility to fasteners was limited and precluded the use
  • How to Set the Torque for a Preset Break-Over Wrench
    A preset break-over torque wrench limits the amount torque applied to a fastener and improves the control of the bolting process by reducing the risk of both over and under tightening. Upon reaching the preset torque value, the tool "breaks" at a specific point along the tool's shaft - usually
  • Learn the Basics of Torque Wrenches
    The torque wrench's main purpose: to tighten a bolt or nut with the correct amount of torque while avoiding over-tightening.
  • The Selection and Use of Torque Wrenches (.pdf)
    In this second of a series of articles on torque, we will consider the different types of torque wrench and discuss how to select the correct wrench for your application. Also, how to use and look after your torque wrench and the benefits of using it correctly to save money and time.
  • 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
  • Diba's Torque Right Technology
    failures. Using a conventional torque wrench can overcome this issue, however sometimes this is not practical because of space constraints, part geometry, tool availability etc. Diba’s patent pending Torque Right™ technology can help resolve this problem. By incorporating a feature
  • How to Set the Torque for a Preset Cam-Over Wrench
    How to Set the Torque for a Preset Cam-Over Wrench
  • Cutting tools and holders last longer when you...Torque it right!
    We recommend using a tightening fixture and torque wrench to make sure cutting tools and retention knobs are properly tightened. Over-tightening can distort or even crack collets, causing runout problems and premature failure of the collet, nut, tool holder and cutting tool.
  • Hydraulic Torque Wrenches...It's All about the Right Prestress
    wrench. In this article you will find further information about the principles behind hydraulic torque wrenches, the various application possibilities, and particularly the things you should pay special attention to when using these tools. In spite of all kinds of new joining techniques, nuts
  • What is Torque?
    available so that the end product will be safe, efficient and economical. Another factor that affects applied torque when using torque wrenches is if it is "length dependent," which means that the actual torque applied to the fastener varies if the hand position on the wrench is varied (even
  • Getting the Best Out of Your Torque Tester - Part Two (.pdf)
    In an ideal world every torque device would have a range from zero to infinity. In the real world there are many reasons why torque wrenches and screwdrivers have a limited capacity. The ability of the spring to work in a linear way is one limit. The weight of the wrench at low torques is another
