Torque Wrench Information

All torque wrenches fall into different categories based upon style of the manufacturer 

(Click Style, Beam, Digital, or Dial Style Torque Wrench)

Click Style:
The actual "Click" from a wrench is considered a "Cycle" of that wrench. Most manufacturers recommend click-style torque wrench calibration after 5000-to-7000 cycles.
For most customers, this means you should calibrate and test torque wrenches every 12 months. 

Electronic Calibration Reporting

Team Torque will give you FREE detailed information on each torque wrench with our calibration certificate.  The Certificate of Calibration sheet will show the following for each torque wrench: Trending, location, status, range, set point (if preset), calibration specification, completion date, next tool calibration date, accuracy of torque wrench before and after calibration, and the technician that certified the torque wrench.

Torque Wrench Repair

Our torque wrench repair center is where to get your torque wrench calibrated for reliable accuracy (We also offer professional torque tester calibration services). A wrench coming into Team Torque first goes through an extensive initial inspection and basic cleaning procedures. Initial accuracy readings and evaluations are done.  Should the torque wrench pass the initial inspection and readings, it is calibrated and certified to factory or national standards.  If it does not pass the inspection, it is evaluated and estimated for a repair cost and depending on the needs of the tool the customer would be called.  If it is found not to be repairable due to cost or condition, it may be condemned per your request.

Note: Free Paper NIST Traceable Certificates are provided with ALL professional torque wrench calibrations at our torque service center!

Lab Information

Lab Manager - Mr. Rich Sabot

Turnaround time on calibrating torque wrenches at our torque service center is typically less than 2.5 working days!

    Helpful Hints from the Lab Experts: 

    • Make sure you run the tool to manufacturer recommended PSI of dynamic (while the tools is running) air pressure at the tool 

    • Proper hose size is important. The inside diameter of the air hose should be one size larger than the size of the inlet of the tool. 

    • The air motor should be lubricated on a regular basis.  This will keep the motor from seizing up and will prevent premature wear. 

      • No tool should be set at it's max range.  

      • Find a torque wrench set at the low to mid range for the torque setting that is needed.
