Torque testers also known as Torque analysers are quality control devices used in the testing and calibration of your torque-controlled tools. Such torque-controlled tools can include torque wrenches, electric, drivers and pulse tools.
Torque testers measure the output signal from the transducer – the electronic device that converts energy from one form to another. They then calculate that reading into a torque value that gives an indication of the rotational force involved.
A key feature of torque testing equipment is their digital display, which allows you to view the reading easily and quickly on a screen. Torque analysers may also include the ability to measure in clockwise and counter-clockwise directions.
Torque-controlled tools like wrenches are commonly used in car garages and by engine builders. Correct calibration of such tools goes a long way in ensuring that the tool provides accuracy and safe results. It's recommended that you calibrate your torque-controlled tools with torque testers at least once per year.
