Revolution in safety process

Hand tool manufacturer Wiha believes that torque tools are so important towards modern history. In most modern industrial and production units today, process safety is one of the top objectives.

During shift changes in industrial, machining production workers are replaced all the time in a brief, yet precise and seamless handover. The same task, the same level of knowledge – the process runs smoothly and safely. Nevertheless, at least when it comes to setting up the machine, replacing and tightening the interchangeable bit, differences arise. One fastens the screw tighter, the other a little looser.

Potential consequences range from damage to expensive tools to complete machine failure in the worst case. Arguably only torque tools can guarantee the quality and processes in the long term. Wiha rises to this challenge with a wide torque assortment, and offers advice and recommendations based on deep-rooted, sound experience.

In most modern industrial and production units today, process safety is one of the top objectives. Various factors are decisive and influential to process reliability, i.e. the precision, efficiency and quality assurance of processes and production procedures. Hand tool manufacturer Wiha Werkzeuge considers the use of torque tools for industrial tool replacement, for instance on inserts, as an essential and previously greatly underestimated factor, which has a positive effect on the individual process safety.

The right torque spares the user from reworking and material damages. In many areas, the use of torque tools is now more necessary than ever and sometimes – in the case of warranty claims, for instance – absolutely essential. Volker Lehmann, product manager and torque specialist at Wiha, explains that new application fields, technologies and materials, coupled with ever advancing miniaturisation, are leading to a growing necessity for applying the right torque for fastening.

“Here, in order to prevent quality problems, process safety is at the forefront. It’s all about using the right tool to prevent high costs involved with reworking or product recalls, and thus avoiding the loss of our own quality image“

As one of the first suppliers of modern torque fastening tools, Wiha translates its many years of experience and deep-rooted expertise into its wide range of torque fastening tools. Its variable torque systems, screwdrivers in the TorqueVario-S and iTorque ranges, pistol handles in the TorqueVario-STR collections and T-handles from the TorqueVario-STplus range, combine precision and functionality with safety and ergonomics.

Depending on the application field, different torque hand tools with various features and advantages are offered. However Wiha claims all tools make a crucial contribution to process safety and offer high reliability and simple handling. After all, it doesn’t matter who is performing the fastening, with the Wiha torque tools, every screw is fastened safely and properly.
