Types of Torque Wrenches Used in Aviation

Air travel is the safest form of transportation today, and one of the main reasons can be attributed to the expertise of aircraft mechanics and engineers as well as the reliability of the tools that enable them to work safely and efficiently. Planes are made up of thousands of parts held together with tens of thousands of bolts or fasteners. Because aircrafts must withstand varying degrees of altitude, speed, and temperature on a daily basis, each bolt must be tightened with a very precise amount of torque.

High-precision manual torque wrenches are capable of exerting a very precise, preset amount of torque to a fastener, so they are an important tool in an aircraft mechanic's inventory. Because accuracy is so important when it comes to aircraft maintenance, it is crucial that these wrenches are calibrated on a regular basis. In this post, we’ll review two common high-precision manual torque tools for aircraft mechanics and the importance of maintaining them with an accredited calibration institute.

Wind Turbine Jobs – Titles, Salaries, Training and Certification

Wind generation has become America’s number one source of renewable electricity generation, according to figures from the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

The EIA says that wind generation totaled 300 million megawatt hours (MWh) last year, compared to 26 million MWh generated by hydroelectric power.

And that’s good news for people in the wind turbine industry – or people seeking wind turbine jobs – as well as people who make, sell and calibrate torque tools, which are invaluable for turbine construction.

In this blog post, we’ll look at the current wind turbine jobs forecast – what jobs are out there, what they entail – and discuss how torque tools can help people in this field.
