What are torque drivers?
Torque screwdrivers are screwdrivers that can be set to a predetermined torque. Torque is the turning force of the screwdriver and is used to both loosen and tighten components. Used in manufacturing, maintenance and mechanical production, torque screwdrivers play an important role in quality assurance.
What are the benefits of torque drivers?
Because you can set the torque up in advance, these screwdrivers allow you to save time and guarantee consistency regardless of the task or skill level of the manual operator. In large-scale operations, being able to work in full confidence that each and every component has been secured to the correct torque is very important.
Furthermore, certain components are more fragile than others. This means that you might have to alter the torque depending on the materials you’re using because too much torque might cause damage. With a torque screwdriver, you can quickly adjust the torque to make sure you have calibrated the exact right torque setting.
