It is natural for torque wrenches to go out of calibration due to consistent usage and time. To ensure torque accuracy, tools should be calibrated regularly. Calibrating torque wrenches and pressure gauges of hydraulic power packs not only boosts the efficiency of the tool but also ensures tool safety. In this article, we will be addressing the importance of calibration and the time frame.
What does calibration do?
Calibration ensures that the torque wrenches apply the right torque output to fasten a bolt accurately. Similarly, pressure gauges of power packs require calibration to ensure it is delivering the right pressure to the torque wrenches as reflected in the gauge.
