Wrench Test Stop Adjustments
(4) After you have prepared the calibrator for a test you can proceed as
a. Place the torque actuator switch (see Figures 9, 10, and Table 2) in
b. At this time strain is transmitted through the torque cell to the
wrench under test. When the torque applied to the wrench reaches the preset value
of the torque wrench, an audible click should be heard.
torque actuator switch to the RELEASE POSITION.
d. Compare the dial indicator reading with the scale setting of the
torque wrench under test.
The readings should be within the tolerances as
specified in the technical order prepared for the wrench tested.
Proving rings are instruments which utilize the laws of
elasticity to measure force. They come in a variety of ranges and are used as a
transfer standard to calibrate torque wrench calibrators and other force measuring
