New digital torque testers from Laser Tools

Laser Tools has recently introduced a range of three digital torque testers that it says make it easy to check accuracy and repeatability of torque wrenches, torque screwdrivers, etc.

Three versions are available: 8303 (range: 1.5 – 30Nm), 8304 (range: 25 – 500Nm) and 8305 (range: 100 – 2000Nm).

The testers are mains powered (via a DC adaptor), and feature a clear, four-digit easy to read LED display, have a sampling rate of 333SPS and an accuracy +/-1 per cent (calibration according to BS7882:2008).

They have a lightweight but robust aluminium body and are intended to be mounted a fixed to a solid surface, such as a work bench (mounting bolts are included).

As it is recommended to check (and calibrate if necessary) torque-controlled tools every 5,000 “clicks” or every 12 months, these torque testers are your answer — safe, accurate, convenient and easy to use, according to Laser Tools.
