TorqTronics - Serial #00003  Build Date: 1998

TorqTronics digital torque analyzer built in 1998


TorqTronics digital torque tester was built as a replacement to the original System 2/Torqtronics digital tester. That was the first American digital torque tester. Torqtronics brought some new enhancements including greater accuracy. 

The Torqtronics in the picture first came back to us for calibration in 2002. It has been in several times for calibration, including November 2016 when it came back for calibration. The display, the keypads, and everything else is still all original. 

A new transducer was installed in 2002 to replace one that had been over torqued to the point where it needed to be tested. Testing revealed that the transducer should be replaced. Everything else is still original equipment. 

If you are not using a digital torque tester from Sturtevant Richmont you may want to look at how long equipment from other brands last. This digital torque tester still works fine and it has been in regular service for 18 years. 


In March 2018 we received another TorqTronics digital torque tool analyzer like the one pictured above.  It came in for testing and calibration. Tests revealed it was still well within calibration and needed no adjustment. Twenty years on the job and it still works fine, everyday. 

We want to thank our customer for taking such great care of the tools we build for them.
