With a business’s need to ensure compliance with industry standards of torque-controlled tools, Laser Tools has recently introduced a range of three digital torque testers that make it easy to check accuracy and repeatability of torque wrenches, torque screwdrivers, etc.
Available in three versions part number 8303 with a range of 1.5Nm – 30Nm, part number 8304 with a range of 25Nm – 500Nm and part number 8305 with a range from 100Nm – 2,000Nm, the testers are mains powered (via a DC adaptor), and feature a clear, 4-digit easy to read LED display.
They also have a sampling rate of 333SPS and an accuracy +/-1% (calibration according to BS 7882:2008). They have a lightweight but robust aluminium body and are intended to be mounted a fixed to a solid surface, such as a work bench with mounting bolts included.
“As it is recommended to check and calibrate if necessary torque-controlled tools every 5,000 ‘clicks’ or every 12 months, these torque testers are your answer – safe, accurate, convenient and easy to use,” comments Laser Tools.
