  • New Innovations-Torque Tester

    Torque testers and dyno machines have used the same basic design for the past few years. However, one company in Australia and New Zealand, SI Instruments, hopes to change that. The company has created a new torque tester that maximizes new technology and reliability in a way that could change the face of torque testing for the foreseeable future. These torque testers are controlled by computer, so it is easy to see the readings from the testers within just a few seconds of the reading. The machines allow easy set-up...

  • White Paper: Build a Custom Test Cell in Weeks Not Months, with INERTIA Test Cell Software

    The Dilemma of Custom Test Systems Engineers are famous for having a strong do-it-yourself (DIY) spirit, hacking together what may start as inelegant prototypes in the design shop to later become sophisticated, life-changing creations. In the same way, they may want to make their own specialized test equipment to help evaluate and perfect their final products. There are several reasons for going down the DIY path rather than purchasing vendor-made machines including: The unit under test (UUT) has specialized requirements that cannot be easily met with turnkey solutions....

Industry Information

Torque Tester

Torque testers are devices that measure and calibrate torque in tools, parts and equipment. They typically determine the maximum and minimum torque as well as the accuracy of the actual output as compared to the displayed amount. Though similar in purpose, they are different from dynos. Some have a temperature compensation feature that prevents a mistaken reading by accounting for the effect increasing or decreasing temperatures can have on a measurement.

Modern torque testers are able to measure torque in clockwise and counterclockwise directions as well as convert the reading into a number of units. Common outputs and arrangements for these devices include analog voltage, analog current, modulated frequency, switch or alarm, serial and parallel. In addition, some are designed for use in difficult environments and have increased resistance to shock and vibration in order to take an accurate and fast reading. Many torque testers are handheld electronic devices with a small screen to display the readings. The components are encased in plastic and several input buttons allow the user to select the preferred options. Torque testers are an important device that maintains safe and efficient conditions. They measure and calibrate tools such as torque wrenches and electric screwdrivers as well as machines and industrial equipment like automotive engines and centrifugal pumps.


Torque testers have three main components. A transducer, or load cell, is a device that converts force into an electrical signal. There are three main ways of doing this. Magnetoelectric sensors use any detected changes in their own magnetic field to create a signal, which is different from eddy current dynamometers, though both use magnets to measure torque. Piezoelectric sensors are compressed by the force of the torque, thus generating a charge. A strain gauge becomes deformed when the force from the torque travels through an assembly and distorts it; the distortion is then converted into electric signals and amplified. There are two main kinds of sensors that testers use: reaction and rotary. Reaction torque testers use a stationary transducer while rotary testers use a rotating transducer to take readings. After an algorithm calculates the force applied to the transducer that produced a current of that magnitude, the results are displayed on a screen. The display and transducer may be held in the same housing or an external transducer can be connected to a portable display. During calibration, a joint simulator, or rundown fixture, is used to test power tools. The joint simulator is placed on top of the transducers with an adapter bit to attach the two. Springs or washers are used to simulate how a tool would behave while operating in a normal setting.
