Torque Wrench Calibrations

Did you know that at minimum your Torque Wrenches need to be calibrated once every year ? here’s why:

Now before I start lets level with each other.  If you’re using your wrench thousands of times a day or using it as a pry bar, hammer or baseball batt then this rule doesn’t apply to you. You got to remember Torque Wrenches are a Mechanical Device that relies on parts to move together to provide you that accurate result. Inside these wrenches you’ll find a spring that opens and compresses everytime you use it and if you’ve ever played with a spring you’ll understand that these springs begin to relax, shift, contract and deform over time. so we’ve learned that a year is an important timeline to stick to if you want to ensure that your wrench stays within the proper range. Book a Free Evaluation with us to get those wrenches of yours calibrated !
