What is Torque?

Posted by on 12/18/2018

Torque is a physics term used to describe the force an object to rotate about an axis, also thought as the “twist” of an object. When it comes to manufacturing, there are many reasons it’s necessary to understand what torque is, and the need for torque tools. For one, learning how to increase torque can make it easier to put something together, or take it apart. For example, compare unscrewing a screw with your fingers and with a screwdriver. Aside from the screwdriver having more grip, the added length increases the torque, making it easier.


Why Does it Matter?

In addition to the physical manufacturing mentioned above, torque can also be a measure of strength and durability of an object or machine. In some factories and manufacturing facilities, torque testing is used to determine the strength of an object. It's measured against a baseline, and the distance from this baseline can indicate an anomaly in the object. Torque testing is critical in the assembly of electric motors, for example.


What Torque Tools are Available?

Here at Waveroom, we’re dedicated to helping your electronics manufacturing business run smoothly and successfully. In line with this goal, we have several torque tools in our inventory to accommodate varying needs. Torque screwdrivers, whether electronic, manual, or digital, can be used to help set things to specific torque levels. We also have digital, and manual torque wrenches are handled similarly. Digital and electronic models can prevent over-tightening because they typically send some signal when you’ve reached the desired level of torque.


Any tool in your toolbox needs to make your job easier. Here at Waveroom Plus, our job is to help you do yours. By choosing high-quality tools from reputable brands to offer, we enable our customers to feel confident in their tool purchases. Whether you need torque tools or workstations, we’re the guys to call. Check out our inventory here to learn more.
