You don't want to be surprised with an out of calibration preset hand screwdriver or wrench. After all, torque tools are precision instruments used to tighten critical, often safety-sensitive fasteners.
Preset hand tools go out of calibration with use. These hand tools should be tested and calibrated frequently based on your tool usage cycle to maintain consistent tool performance and accuracy. Properly calibrated torque wrenches and screwdrivers will deliver accurate torque readings within specified tolerances, assuring safety and adherence to international standards.
Calibration is the method of comparing a tool's accuracy standard to traceable National or International Standards, such as N.I.S.T. and ISO. Calibrating a preset torque tool requires proper training. By developing a calibration plan and investing in torque measurement equipment to carry it out, companies can avoid costly dips in product quality and production delays.
