Torque Measurement

Norbar's torque transducers have established an excellent reputation based on exceptional quality and accuracy.  A very wide torque range is covered, 0.04 N·m to 100,000 N·m and three basic transducer configurations are offered; Static, Impulse Rotary and Annular.

All transducers up to 100,000 N·m are supplied as standard with a UKAS accredited calibration certificate from Norbar's in-house laboratory.

For customers who wish to take advantage of Norbar's transducers but have an existing, non Norbar display instrument, transducers can be provided with a mV/V calibration.

Norbar's instruments and transducers are complimented by a wide range of ancillary products.  Within this group are the products that would be required to set up a torque calibration laboratory, for example, torque wrench loaders meeting ISO requirements and precision beam and weight systems for calibration of torque transducers.

Tool Test Rigs

The Norbar Test Rigs are designed to simulate the working conditions of screwed or bolted joints. Used in conjunction with a Norbar transducer, bench stand and display instrument, the output of torque controlled power tools can be measured against a range of simulated joint rates, from hard through to soft.

  • Suitable for Power Tool Testing

  • Models available for torques from 140 N·m to 7000 N·m (100 lbf·in to 5100 lbf·ft).

Use Our Calculators

Norbar has devised easy-to-use online calculators that support the correct application of torque in three key areas:

  1. Unit conversion to assist international measurement definitions.
  2. Torque extension for setting correct values
  3. Torque tension to identify precise levels of torque to be applied for individual applications.
