Norbar torques tough

09 January 2007

Readers are reminded that the popular sensors, measurement and instrumentation exhibition, mtec, takes place at the NEC on February 14 and 15 2007. You can pre-register for this event at

Torque measurement is a serious business. In the extreme, people’s lives may depend on the accuracy with which a bolt is tightened. Too tight and it may fracture; too loose and it may not do the job it is designed to do. Over the years, Norbar has made something of an art of torque measurement and calibration. It was the first torque equipment manufacturer to have an in-house NAMAS calibration laboratory (the precursor to UKAS) and continues to offer one of the most comprehensive services in the country.

The company recently enlarged and modernised its UKAS accredited calibration laboratory in Banbury and a UKAS certificate is now supplied as standard with all of Norbar’s measuring systems up to 6,800Nm (being optional for torque wrenches and torque multipliers falling within this range). Norbar’s stand will have details of its calibration service, which is also available for all types of torque tools and torque measuring equipment, whether of Norbar manufacture or not.
