Wiha has released the Torque QuickCheck which quickly checks Wiha torque screwdrivers before each use.
Applying the wrong torque can lead to serious consequences during delicate screw fastening tasks, potentially damaging materials and leading to rectification work or warranty claims. The mobile Torque QuickCheck provides a regular tool to help guarantee secure and controlled work.
Wiha torque screwdrivers can be checked by inserting them into the Torque QuickCheck together with the enclosed adapter blades and checked at 2.8 Nm. The result is indicated by a traffic light colour LED light.
The Wiha Torque QuickCheck is a rapid testing device, guide and supportive component for increased safety in torque fastenings, and is ideal for all Wiha iTorque® and Torque Vario®-S torque screwdrivers that can be set to the check value 2.8 Nm. The new rapid testing device by Wiha does not replace the need for recorded calibration.
Wiha went into more depth on the thinking behind the new product: “It’s a familiar situation for users. After the recommended period of one year or 5,000 couplings, it’s time to send the torque tool off for calibration. The result: “Out of tolerance”. Now, you have no idea how long, for which customers and with which inaccurate torque value you’ve been working and tightening. As a user, you have to take a decision: do you have to check all work carried out during the last period? Or do you take the risk of having erroneously fastened something with the wrong torque and therefore having caused acute or consequential damage to material and equipment? This is where the latest innovation from Wiha comes in.”
