Whilst torque tool manufactures work to ISO6789:2017 Part 1 conformity to ensure their products are within the 4-6% tolerance, calibration determines the individual tools performance, and periodic calibrations should take place to determine the performance over its lifespan. ISO6789:2017 Part 2 calibration defines how this should be performed.
So how often should you calibrate your tools? This depends on the liability you face in not knowing the tool is performing to standard, and the consequences, whether in product loss, recall or application failures.
An increasing number of torque tool users are now stipulating calibration frequency and record keeping for their tools to adhere to ISO6789:2017. Companies tightening wheel nuts in truck buses are prime examples, as are aviation and defence applications.
ISO6789:2017 Part 2 Calibration is a detailed and comprehensive standard requiring extensive knowledge of metrology principles, in the method of calibration and calculation of results. This webinar addresses questions and provides solutions to this standard.
We will demonstrate how you can meet these requirements and reduce the operating complexities of using ISO6789:2017 in the calibration of manual torque tools using our software and torque calibration machines.
You will learn:
- Why you should calibrate your torque tools
- How often you should calibrate your torque tools
- Understanding the complexities of the manual torque tools ISO 6789:2017 standard
- Different requirements for torque wrenches and torque screwdrivers
- Practical solutions in how to use the standard
