Torque Screws and Knobs

Torque screws and knobs are essential tools in various mechanical and engineering applications. Torque screws, also known as torque-limiting screws or torque-limiting fasteners, are designed with a specific torque value in mind. They are equipped with a mechanism that prevents over-tightening by limiting the amount of torque applied during fastening. This ensures that components are secured precisely and avoids damage caused by excessive force. Torque screws are commonly used in industries such as automotive, aerospace, and manufacturing, where precise torque control is critical to maintain the integrity of assemblies and prevent issues like stripped threads or component breakage.

On the other hand, torque knobs are hand-operated devices used to apply controlled torque when turning or tightening screws, bolts, or other fasteners. They often have an ergonomic design for comfortable handling and feature indicators or scales to help users apply the desired amount of torque. Torque knobs are commonly found in a variety of settings, including machinery maintenance, construction, and even home improvement projects, where precise torque application is necessary to ensure the safety and reliability of the assembled parts. In both cases, torque screws and knobs play a crucial role in achieving precision and consistency in fastening tasks, thereby contributing to the overall quality and reliability of mechanical systems and structures.
