The importance of keeping your torque tools in peak calibration condition is well established. In the garage environment, tools will often be owned by the mechanic rather than the business so it is imperative that there is a mechanism to assure the quality of these tools.

Many businesses achieve this by using a third party calibration service. However, it is usually more convenient to perform calibration checks in-house.Torque wrenches can be checked more frequently, immediately if a problem is suspected, and they do not need to leave the site unnecessarily. Many businesses chose to check there torque wrenches daily or before each use making an in-house torque testing facility essential.

The main reasons that more companies do not perform calibration checks on their own wrenches are the cost of testers and fears over the complexity of the testing equipment. Norbar’sTruCheckTM torque wrench testers remove these concerns.They are very cost effective being significantly cheaper than most similar products on the market and simpler to use.

TruCheck was designed specifically with the needs of automotive and transport workshops in mind. This is the entry level into a range of torque measurement solutions from Norbar that is amongst the best regarded in the world.
