THE TORQUE WRENCH IS USED TO CHECK THE TIGHTENING TORQUE OF YOUR SCREWS AND NUTS
The torque wrench is a tool designed to measure the tightening torque of screws and nuts, in order to mount them optimally. Do you want to secure your bindings? Discover the range of torque wrenches for professionals imagined and developed by Würth!
MEASURE THE TIGHTENING TORQUE AND APPLY THE MANUFACTURERS' RECOMMENDATIONS
Let’s start by recalling that the tightening torque is the product of a force F and a lever arm L. It is expressed in N·m (newton meter). Any tightening requires an appropriate torque, which varies depending on the size and quality of the parts used. The torque wrench is therefore the measurement tool used to:
• measure the effective tightening torque of a screw-nut assembly
• correct it until it corresponds to the ideal torque recommended by the manufacturers.
PRECISE AND PRACTICAL WRENCHES, WITH AN AUDIBLE INDICATION THE SCREWING IS COMPLETE
A torque wrench is fitted with a strain gauge which triggers the emission of an audible signal when the correct tightening torque is reached. It protects you from under- or over-tightening. Perfect for securing your assemblies, most Würth torque wrenches guarantee you:
• high precision, generally ± 3 to 6% compared to the actual value, in accordance with ISO 6789: 2003
• ease of use, easy to adjust using a swivel handle, and key configuration allowing you to reach screws and nuts in tight spots
• easy reading of the value in N·m, on a graduated scale or screen.
HOW TO USE OUR 1/2 OR 3/4 INCH TORQUE WRENCHES FOR BOLTS, VALVES, ETC.
Würth offers you a wide range of wrenches adapted to your needs, supplied with a calibration certificate. Take a look at our online catalogue and discover our different models of torque wrenches for professionals (1/4 inch, 1/2 inch, 3/8 inch, for valve, adapter and other angular tightening wrenches). For optimal use, make sure to:
• release the spring after use, then adjust it to the lowest value
• check that your key authorizes the control of a torque to the left, in the (rare) case where you will not be dealing with screws with a propeller on the right
• check your torque wrenches at least once a year, using suitable measuring equipment.
