For manufacturers, high capacity torque control is essential. If a fastener is too tight, it can break, or strip is threads. If it's not tight enough, it can vibrate loose.
Proper torque control isn't just the difference between success and failure, but the difference between a safe, efficient product and disaster.
Here are a few basic tips for achieving torque control:
Figure out torque requirements
To determine the right torque requirements, an engineer needs to consider a number of factors: the strength of the material being joined, whether it's a hard or soft joint, and the maximum load on the fastener.Read More
