Torque wrenches are precision hand tools used to adjust nuts, bolts and screws to a specific torque. These wrenches are used in several industries, including automotive and construction, engineering, maintenance and home repairs.
What Is a Torque Wrench Used For?
Torque is a measure of rotational force. Torque wrenches tighten fastenings to the correct tension, vital for safety and optimum performance. The proper torque can be essential to avoid damaging parts from over-tightening or fixings becoming loose and hazardous.
There are different torque wrenches available, including electronic, adjustable and click torque wrenches. The latter makes a clicking sound when the correct torque has been applied.
