A torque wrench is a tool used to apply a specific torque to a fastener; a nut or a bolt, for example. It is used when the tightness of screws and bolts is crucial. It allows the operator the ability to measure the torque applied to the fastener so it can be matched to the specifications for a particular application.
Preset Torque Wrenches are ideal for production lines and/or repetitive tasks where the desired torque level is constant. The LTCS-Series Preset Fixed Square Drive Clicker Type Torque Wrenches by Sturtevant Richmont are ideal for any application where:
The fastener or fitting to be tightened can be engaged with a socket.
The same torque is to be applied repeatedly.
A limited amount of rotation (no ratcheting) is needed to achieve the desired torque.
High operator efficiency, simplicity and tool durability is desired.
The LTCS-Series tools are perfect for assembly applications with constant torque values and fasteners are accessible and can be engaged with a socket.
