Why calibrate a torque wrench?
All threaded fasteners like nuts and bolts have appropriate torque values designed by their manufacturer. It’s important to calibrate your torque wrench properly to make sure the fastener has the exact tension it needs to function safely.
Torque wrenches are precision instruments often used where the tension of a nut or bolt is crucial. Over time with use, especially in industrial environments or due to being mishandled, a torque wrench can become unreliable. An under torqued bolt will deform and not provide as much clamping force needed. An over torqued bolt with break.
It’s essential for you to have your torque wrenches calibrated, not just to maintain their accuracy and longevity, but to avoid incorrect and unreliable torque measurements.
