Talking the torque

The Norbar Torque Tools calibration laboratory in Banbury, Oxfordshire has achieved an extended level of endorsement from the government recognised United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) having been awarded accreditation for performing calibrations to 108,500 Nm of torque under BS7882: 2008.

Norbar's range of independently accredited capabilities now extends from over 100,000 Nm for projects such as measuring torque for fasteners on massive oil and gas pipelines down to 0.005 Nm for delicate scientific calibrations. Managing director Neill Brodey explained that precision engineering expertise is at the core of all its manufactured products and equipment. "We put the same level of consistent quality and accuracy into a 200 Nm

Norbar torque wrench as we employ in more specialised equipment. Users across all sectors from vehicle aftermarket to mining can have total confidence that our products are fully fit for purpose as calibrated".

Norbar calibrates and recalibrates both its own equipment and that of competitors to international standards. The laboratory was previously accredited for up to 6,800 Nm with a traceable, non accredited service to 100,000 Nm.

Based in the USA, Australia, New Zealand, China and Singapore as well as the UK, Norbar demonstrates consistently strong performance as a manufacturer and exporter of torque equipment. The company also manufactures much of its own tooling for production and its testing equipment can be found in other engineering laboratories throughout the world.
