Not ALL Torque Screwdrivers Are As Accurate As Ours
Most calibration labs test a torque screwdriver on the tester just as it is. Using a screwdriver of any type requires “thrust force” to keep the bit in the screw slot.

Our wireless torque systems use tools and electrical or electronic components that communicate with the operator and assembly line controls. System capabilities range from simple operator support through complex Ethernet guidance, support and control.
When the worlds best engineers need preset, adjustable, or indicating torque tools they can trust they come here. You’ll find manual torque screwdrivers, click wrenches, beam wrenches, dial wrenches with just a click. Accuracy. Reliability. Durability.
Extend the reach and capability of your SR tools! From interchangeable heads to tool extensions and more, find a variety of specialty and support products here.
Want to get the most out of your torque tools? Buying high quality tools is the first step. Once you have the tools how you treat them and how they are used is even more important in getting the accuracy and reliability that you want.
When DC tools can't access every threaded fastener, hand tools come into the picture. How do you guide workers, manage hand tools, control the assembly sequence and get the data you need from hand tools?
Back in the 1960s Sturtevant Richmont produced and sold the definitive manual on torque applications in an industrial setting.

The ONE Thing You Need To Know About Torque Testing Transducers
Human influence has an impact of torque application and torque tool calibration. Tool design and the correct techniques help minimize the effect that humans have on the process.
History of Torque Tools
The history of the torque wrench is the history of Sturtevant Richmont. In 1924 when Walter P. Chrysler licensed Paul Sturtevant to manufacture and sell Chrysler’s invention, the torque wrench, error proofing and the torque tool industry were born. Trace the development of different tools in this video.

English, Metric, SI – it can all be confusing sometimes, especially when converting from one unit of measure to another. Our metric value conversion app helps you make the change quickly and easily. More importantly it helps you make the change accurately.
We are constantly publishing new articles about torque tools and issues. Even though we’ve been at this for more than 70 years, we learn something new everyday. We are happy to share that with you.
Can I Get a Witness?
Some fasteners are so critical to an assembly that supervisors are required to watch the work being done and then both the worker and the “witness” sign off that the work was done to specification. Rather than a human, what if your torque tool could perform that function, be more accurate, and provide you with accurate report data?

Case Study: Hydraulic Couplings
Hydraulic couplings are a critical piece in keeping the hydraulic fluid inside the hoses and moving the parts. When there is a hydraulic fluid leak the expenses are high. Even worse, many of these couplings are deep within a piece of equipment. That means additional disassembly and reassembly of products. Learn how to prevent these expensive errors.
