Mountz Offers Two New Quarterly Newsletters to Educate Resellers and Engineers About Torque


Chris Morris :
San Jose, Calif., – Mountz, Inc. introduces two new quarterly torque newsletters for educating resellers and engineers. Most engineers never take a class on torque, as it’s not part of the general curriculum in most college courses. Instead, they learn on the job about torque control. The two new educational newsletters provide torque tips, training tips, tool calibration guidelines, tool selection advice, updates to torque standards and application stories to help enhance their knowledge.

Torque Control is more than simply taking a hand or power tool and tightening a fastener or bolt. The Mountz newsletters will educate engineers and resellers on topics like “What is Torque?”, “How is torque measured?” and “Stresses induced into a bolt.” Offering these insights allow engineers and resellers to better understand the basic knowledge of torque and how it impacts their applications and maintain quality control.

Controlling torque is quintessential for companies to ensure their product´s quality, safety and reliability isn´t compromised. The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn’t properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently torqued can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners. Using a quality torque tool has become increasingly important for many companies to ensure that proper torque is being applied and maintains gauge requirements associated with the ISO 9001 Quality Standard.

The Mountz newsletters also provide tips for using torque tools properly. An operator using a torque tool should use it with a safe operating position and use it properly. If a torque tool is operated incorrectly, inappropriately or unsafely, it can lead to serious damage and injury.

A torque tool is a precision torque control instrument and should be handled with care at all times. In order to maintain accuracy, it is crucial that torque control measuring equipment be calibrated
and service regularly. The Mountz newsletters provide information and recommended guidelines for maintaining a torque tool.

With over 40 years of torque experience, Mountz Inc. believes educating engineers about torque is the vital for the industry. The more knowledge and torque education Mountz offers, the easier it is for engineers to create a torque control program that is best suited for their needs.
