Torque Wrench Market: Introduction
A torque wrench is a device which is used to employ precisely a particular torque to fastener tools such as nuts, bolts, etc. and is typically used in the type of a socket wrench including special internal mechanisms. Torque Wrench was created by Conrad Bahr in the year 1918 while working for the water department of New York City which was invented to prevent the excessive tightening of bolts on the steam or water pipe repairs. A torque wrench is used wherever the tightness of bolts and screws is very crucial.
It permits the operator to estimate or measure the torque which is applied to the fastener tools so it can be balanced with the specifications of a particular application. The torque wrench permits precise tension and loading to all parts of the machine, where it is applied. It can measures torque like a proxy for nuts or bolts tension. This technique can suffer from little inaccuracy owing to uncalibrated or inconsistent friction between the fastener tool and its mating hole. Measurement of bolt tension is actually what is needed, but usually, a torque wrench is the only practical measurement tool which can be performed.
