Has your business ever considered using a Production Style Torque Wrench?
What is a Production Style Torque Wrench? Good question!
A Production Style Torque Wrench is used for applications in a large range of industries from production & assembly to aviation.
Production Style Torque Wrenches come pre-set to a torque value that is required for the particular application. However, if the torque value requires amendment, the pre-set can be changed; it is not set for life!
Production style Torque Wrenches have no scale or increments as well as a different internal operating mechanism compared to an adjustable type torque wrench. As such they are considerably cheaper.
By having a production or pre-set type Torque Wrench, it eliminates the possibility of the operator selecting the incorrect scale, i.e. 20Nm instead of 20ft. lbs, and ensures correct tension of fasteners every time.
These wrenches, like every torque wrench, still require regular calibration testing to ensure that the wrench is operating within the standards (AS 4115 1993, ISO 6789).
