Maintenance Of Industrial Torque Tools

in Tool
The industrial torque wrench is one of the most commonly used It tools nowadays. That is because they are the ones responsible for the tightening and loosening of bolts, to ensure that mechanisms, machines and other types of things with bolts are kept safe and well-structured.

Follow these steps to properly maintain your It tools known as the It wrench:

* Get a pencil, and use it to mark the midpoint of the wrench head located at the back of the torque wrench.

* Take the measurements. Measure the midpoint, up to where the most pressure is applied to your wrench. Write this one as "d1" or "distance 1". If it is in inches pounds, then write it in inches pounds, if it is in feet pounds, then write it in feet pounds.

* Clamp the wrench bit using a vice. Use a string and hang a 20-pound weight into the wrench handle.

* Move the weight until it reaches either 40-foot pounds or 480-inch pounds. Get the distance travelled and write it down as "distance 2" or "d2"

* By using a calculator, divide D2 with D1. This is your calibration ratio. This ratio is important as this will help you set the wrench settings correctly.

* Remember that you need to do this at least once every year. If you can't do it yourself, then go to a shop that maintains or calibrates It tools, as well as It wrenches. They will cost between1 $15-$50, depending on the calibration settings.

* The industrial torque wrench is one of the most commonly used It tools nowadays. That is because they are the ones responsible for the tightening and loosening of bolts, to ensure that mechanisms, machines and other types of things with bolts are kept safe and well-structured.

* Make sure that as with other It tools, it should be kept clean and lubricated at all times. Make sure to return the scale back to zero.
These simple steps will help you in the maintenance of your It wrenches, as well as their calibration. Remember, calibration is important with all It tools.
