Mountz, Inc – the torque tool specialists adds two new engineer resources to its website, http://www.mountztorque.com. These new web applications, the "Torque Tool Selector" and the "Torque Converter Calculator," provide users with valuable information to help improve job performance and productivity.
Easy to navigate, the "Torque Tool Selector" helps engineers narrow a selection of torque tools to fit his or her application. It customizes the search based on user interaction and input. By answering a small set of questions about how the torque tool will be used, the user is presented a customized list that meets their criteria. Then the Selector offers further filtering options, like the range of torque for the application, how the torque will be applied and other unique tool options, helping users save time to reach the best choices that fit their criteria. The user can define how narrow they wish the search to be within the Selector, and the end result is a self-defined list with easy access to torque tool descriptions, specs and resources.
Torque Control is more than simply taking a hand or power tool and tightening a fastener or bolt. The "Torque Tool Selector" will educate engineers and assist them in selecting the proper tool for the application. Controlling torque is essential for companies to ensure that their product's quality, safety and reliability isn't compromised.
The "Torque Converter Calculator" allows users to quickly convert torque measurement units. The APP can be used for all three international measuring systems – American (Imperial), Metric and International Standard (S.I.). Reducing the time to manually calculate a torque conversion, an engineer simply enters the value to convert and clicks the "convert" button. The APP displays the torque value in each international measurement system by units. Engineers can bookmark "Torque Converter Calculator" web page and can easily access it anytime, anywhere with an Internet connection.
The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn't properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently torqued can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners. Using quality torque tools has become increasingly important for many companies to ensure that proper torque is being applied and maintains gauge requirements associated with the ISO 9001 Quality Standard.
