We’ll shortly be attending Farnborough International Air Show 2012 so it seems fitting that prior to this we consider torque in aerospace engineering. Now I know that Norbar’s specific offerings to this sector have been outlined already in a previous blog but it is also worth thinking about the industry as a whole and how torque application and measurement impacts aerospace manufacturing, especially with recent pressures to decrease fuel consumption for cost and environmental reasons. Wider industry concerns like this naturally impact on aerospace engineering which requires absolute precision and rigorous attention to health and safety details. In short, torque calibration and measurement play a vital role in maintaining the performance, reliability and longevity of vital equipment. Aerospace has a critical need to accurately control threaded fasteners. The accurate measurement and application of torque on joints and fastenings is critical for aircraft manufacturing and maintenance where clo ...
