In practical applications, finding a screwdriver set suitable for your torque sometimes seems to be difficult and confusing. When choosing a torque screwdriver, there are many options. Which tool is really suitable for your actual operation? This is the key question you want to answer.
When you are not sure about the differences between screwdrivers, choosing a low-cost tool is the easiest option. There is a simple reason. If torque tools are inappropriate or fail, then the excuse of "...oh, these tools do not require much investment" is our acceptable rationalization reason.
It is worthwhile to spend time on self-learning and understand the various torque screwdrivers available. How important is torque for your fastening application? The lack of torque control in communication satellites or cell phone towers can be a costly mistake. Obviously, for cars, airplanes or missiles, failure to properly tighten fasteners or bolts to the correct torque can lead to potentially catastrophic consequences. Therefore, a high-quality torque screwdriver is worth your investment.
The eccentric installation principle of the manual torque screwdriver can prevent over tightening of fasteners or bolts. These torque tools are ideal for fastening applications that cannot withstand excessive torque. As a quality control tool, the torque screwdriver allows operators to transfer the correct torque with confidence, regardless of the work situation and the skill level of the operator.
The adjustable torque screwdriver has an external adjustment torque scale, allowing the operator to quickly and accurately adjust the torque setting on the tool according to the needs of different applications. Torque screwdrivers can cover a variety of fastening applications due to their wide adjustable torque range.
The design function of the adjustable torque screwdriver is that when the tool reaches its selected torque value, the mechanical device is disengaged from the drive, thereby limiting the applied torque. In addition, thrust bearings ensure that the torque setting is independent of any final load applied by the operator. Adjustable screwdrivers designed for various industries such as communications, electronics, instrumentation, medical, aerospace, and other field service and maintenance environments can ensure proper torque control. High-quality adjustable screwdrivers usually have a ring or baffle device that allows the operator to press down to adjust the torque setting and then lock it in place after release to prevent accidental torque adjustment.
Please be careful when choosing an adjustable torque screwdriver from an industrial supplier. Low-cost tools are usually short-term solutions. In the long run, this will affect quality and performance. Most adjustable torque screwdrivers use a "spherical clutch" design. This is where the ball bearing rolls or skips the static rod or cam position. The design limits the quality and life of the tool. This can also lead to premature screwdriver misalignment, which increases the maintenance cost of the tool. Another feature commonly seen with poorly designed screwdrivers is loose shafts.
The torque tool will exceed the calibration range during use. Calibrating a torque tool is a fine-tuning process that returns the tool to its tolerance range. The torque tester can also be used for quick tool testing in the laboratory to determine whether the torque tool maintains the given settings.
The regular torque calibration of adjustable torque screwdrivers ensures accuracy. Torque testing can also ensure that the torque equipment achieves the best performance and can be highlighted before any potential tool problems occur (probably due to tool wear or component damage).
Using a high-quality torque screwdriver can provide a safer world with accuracy and precision. Controlling torque is essential for the company to ensure that its product quality, safety and reliability are not affected. Failure to tighten the fasteners properly can result in catastrophic or potential failure. Insufficiently fastened fasteners may vibrate and loosen, and excessive torque may cause threaded fasteners to fall off.
