Types of torque wrenches


It is important to know what a torque wrench is before we discuss the types of torque wrenches available in the industry. A torque wrench is used to either tighten or loosen a fastener (bolt or nut) by applying the right amount of torque on it. As Newton’s 3rd law states, every action requires an equal and opposite reaction, applying the high value of torque, the wrenches would require a reaction arm to lock itself at an adjacent point.
