Applying the correct bolt torque to critical industrial applications, such as wind turbines, bridges, gas and oil pipelines and pumps and valves, can be the determining factor if a company running smoothy, or could face a catastrophe.Read More
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.Read More
April and May are typically a busy season for wind turbine projects, whether that means new construction or repowering, maintenance or service.
That’s why this is the best time to reach out to your authorized E-RAD service center to schedule torque wrench calibration for your E-RAD electric torque wrenches.Read More
Proper 17025 calibration should be a mandatory maintenance item for any job foreman who manages industrial torque wrenches.Read More
