Find out about different types of power tools for torque application and their maintenance techniques
Torque wrenches are used whenever you need to apply a specific torque to a fastener. With the development of componentry technology, the manufacturers lay specific details about the maintenance of various components of a machine. This involves the instructions on how much torque should be applied to tighten each bolt or a fastener. Consequently, torque wrenches have become an important aspect of every mechanic's tool kit.
But where do you use a torque wrench?
A Torque Wrench allows you to tighten fasteners to exact specifications. An accurately used and calibrated torque wrench enables you to protect the damage caused by the over-tightening or under-tightening of screws.
Torque Wrenches were once considered a luxury but with the rapid advances in vehicle frame and componentry technology, the maintenance and assembly of all the components require very precise handling. Torque Wrenches are now a necessity and even the most calibrated mechanics can't think of ignoring them.
