At Premium Group, we recognize that proper maintainability of torque operations is imperative for product efficacy and production efficiency, which can mean the difference between a safe, reliable product and impending disaster.
Threaded fasteners are designed to connect parts with a tension greater than the external forces tending to separate them. An inadequately torqued fastener can vibrate or work itself loose if the tension is too high, the fastener can shear or strip its threads.
It is essential to have reliable, accurate torque calibration to properly tighten fasteners in accordance with applicable design specifications. Fastener reliability is dependent upon the correct initial tension applied. If the initial tension is too low, varying loads act on the fastener and can quickly lose tension and fail. Conversely, if the initial tension is too high, over tightening may cause the fastener to fail. The most practical method of ensuring the correct torque is applied, is through the use of routinely calibrated torque tools.
Over time, the accuracy of torque tools tends to drift, typically due to harsh operating environments, mechanical shock, or extensive use. Maintaining established calibration intervals is vital to ensure your torque tools and equipment meet specified tolerance limits.
Our accredited calibration laboratory performs torque calibration in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025 and ANSI Z-540-1994 as defined under our A2LA Scope of Accreditation. We pride ourselves on providing expert torque calibration aimed to ensure your torque tools and equipment perform accurately within specified tolerances, and maintain traceability to NIST or international standards.
