Whether the aim is to fasten with screws in a production process, apply quality control, maintenance or repairs, it is primordial to be able to count on very accurate and reliable tightening tools. “Guesswork” tightening is unfortunately as widespread as it is risky.
« “Tightening is ordinary, yet involves high technology” says Jean-Pierre Marlier, CEO of One-Too for 35 years and the driving force behind the Moment Alpha tightening solutions since 2001. Because whether the aim is to fasten with screws in a production process, apply quality control, maintenance or repairs, it is crucial to be able to count on very accurate and reliable tightening tools that are in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations. “Guesswork” tightening is unfortunately as widespread as it is risky.
Risky, because if you want all the parts of your machine or product to be perfectly assembled, it is necessary to precisely know the elastic limit (or yield point) of the screw and to tighten it accordingly. Approximate tightening does not ensure the use of the required torque. Thus, either tightening will be insufficient, with the risk of shearing or the screw or nut coming loose due to vibrations, or it will be excessive, which could break the screw or the nut and damage the assembly. In any case, there is an increased risk of breakage, which is harmful to users and to your own efficiency.
