When calibrating or testing torque wrenches, often adapters are needed. Especially wrenches with open-end heads. Testing wrenches with an assortment of open-end sizes will require technicians to have a variety of different size adapters in the lab. The calibration hex step adapter by Mountz, Inc. is engineered for testing various size open-end torque wrenches with one adapter.
An adapter that features four common sizes will increase productivity. A calibration technician doesn't need to be delayed with searching for different size adapters nor spend time removing and inserting different size adapters into the torque tester or torque sensor. A calibration hex step adapter by Mountz is the solution for a calibration technician. The Mountz calibration hex adapter makes it easy and convenient to test a common range of open-ended wrenches.
The hex step adapters can be used with a torque sensor or torque analyzer for a torque wrench calibration. Mountz offers standard sizes hex adapters, as well as the ability to create custom size adapters that best meets a customer's calibration needs. The easy-to-use hex adapter improves the calibration process by making it simple and efficient for a calibration technician.
Torque wrenches go out of calibration with use. To maintain consistent accuracy, torque tools must be checked periodically for wear or defective parts. A power or hand torque tool is a measuring tool that must be properly calibrated and maintained. Regular torque tool calibration and re-calibration guarantees the operator repeatable accuracy and adherence to international standards. Torque testing also ensures torque equipment is operating to peak performance and can highlight potential tooling problems before they arise perhaps due to tool wear or broken components.
Using quality torque calibration equipment during the torque testing process makes a safer world through accuracy and precision. Controlling torque is essential for companies to ensure their product's quality, safety and reliability isn't compromised. The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn't properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently fastened can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners.
