P1.9 - A Guide for Choosing the Right Calibration for Torque Transducers

Georg Wegener & Lioba Stenner
Torque transducers (e.g. torque shafts, torque flanges) have become increasingly important during the last decades. Measuring torque is crucial for testing the performance of a wide range of rotating machinery. Some important examples are engine and transmission test stands in the automotive industry, testing of pumps or electric motors and many other mechanisms like steering gear. Another field of torque measurement is in torque tools used in assembly, from simple torque wrenches to rotary assembly...
