Torque Wrenches

Torque wrenches can be used to prevent over-tightening when fastening locking nuts and bolts. A digital torque wrench is an essential part of any mechanic's toolbox. The difference between a basic wrench and a torque wrench is that the latter indicates exactly how much force is being applied to its handle. It is very important to know precisely how much force or torque is being applied. Too tight might cause damage and too loose might back off.

Types of torque wrenches

Any tool that can be used to tighten a nut or bolt to a specific torque is known as a torque wrench. Torque wrenches are essentially socket wrenches, but with additional parts that allow for the measurement of torque. There are different types of torque wrenches and each heave their own advantages and disadvantages.

Electronic Torque Wrenches

Allows an accurate representation of torque on a digital screen. Typically used by auto body shops or in automobile factories for quality assurance. Electronic torque wrenches are able to store any measurements made in an internal memory device which can be viewed on a computer.

Beam Torque Wrenches

The most basic form, uses two beams to calculate and indicate the amount of torque that has been applied. Also known as Endam torque wrench, a more cost-effective option than other types. Beam torque wrenches are durable, effective and their simple design allows for easy operation.

Dial Indicator Torque Wrenches

Designed as an alternative solution to a digital wrench for performing a quick visual torque verification test. A simple mechanical system that connects to a pointer that hovers above a torque scale attached to the handle or to the dial indicator.

Mechanical Torque Wrenches

The most common type of torque wrench, widely available almost everywhere. It has a greater precision than many of the other torque wrenches available.
