Ensa’s CTA designs and manufactures a testing ground for the characterization of torque tools and nut-bolt friction coefficients

The laboratory of metrology of the Advanced Technology Centre of Ensa has designed and manufactured a torque test bed that allows the analysis of torque electric tools with all types of metrics and bolt lengths. It is also valid to determine the actual coefficient of friction in nut-bolt assemblies with different commercial lubricants.

As a real application, it has been used in an R&D study of different commercial brands of torque tools. This study allowed the contracting company to choose the best tool for their new production process and thus improve their productivity.
