A digital torque wrench measures the amount of torque applied to a fastener. Typically, this type of equipment is used to audit the torque applied to a bolt or screw after assembly to verify that proper torque has been achieved. The objective of controlling torque is to ensure that products are as safe and reliable as possible. Smart digital torque wrenches for quality control and line audits incorporate advanced technologies to record re-tighten torque in the fastener. This greatly improves product quality and process control, allowing the quality engineer product assembly data and error proofing capabilities that in the past did not exist.
Utilizing angle control the digital torque wrench measures degree of rotation and allows for a torque monitor/angle control strategy in the audit process. As the target angle is reached the operator will feel a vibration and an audible tone from the tool which signals completion of the assembly audit. The smart wrench then sends each cycle to a data base or control system providing both error proofing and documentation of a products assembly process. This technology defines the exact re-tightening torque without adding more torque to your fastener.
