Stanley Proto Expands Line of Torque Testing Equipment


With the introduction of new test and calibration equipment, Stanley Proto has positioned itself as a full torque solutions provider. Most companies that use torque wrenches have regularly scheduled calibration checks. To help meet this need Proto is introducing a new standalone torque tester and expanding its line of transducers.

Testing and calibrating a torque wrench usually requires three separate tools: a transducer, a bracket, and a meter. But the Stanley Proto Torque Tester streamlines the process by combining all three functions in one tool. The tool can be used to test all types of torque wrenches in all types of settings where full-scale calibration is needed or where a quick pass/fail check is required. Potential users include those in production facilities and quality control, as well as in calibration labs.

For users who need separate meters and transducers, Proto is also introducing five new transducers, increasing the total number of SKUs in its lineup to 16. When used with the Proto Torque Meter the new transducers are “plug and play,” with automatic transducer detection, easy setup, and user-friendly operation. All bench mount transducer have an impressive accuracy of +/- 0.5 percent of indicated value.
