Torque addition to ToolScout service
Posted on 30 Apr 2019 and read 1186 times
Germany-based Hoffmann Group has enhanced its digital ToolScout service — an on-line service for tool selection and deter-mination of cutting data (www.toolscout.com
) — to include a purchasing and application consultant for torque wrenches and dynamometric screwdrivers.
Users can now determine the most suitable torque tool (400 are currently available on-line) for a particular application.
In order to find the right tool for tightening screws, users can select from individual criteria such as thread type, strength class and tightening direction; the system then calculates a non-binding suggestion on the torque required.
Once the desired torque is known, the torque wrenches and dynamometric screwdrivers can be filtered by properties such as torque range, trigger principle, display procedure and measuring accuracy.
If a plug-in head that changes the reference dimension is being used, the service calculates the corrected torque value by drawing on a database that currently contains around 700 plug-in heads from leading manufacturers.
The service is also connected directly to the Hoffmann Group’s eShop, so the products selected can be ordered from the Hoffmann Group with just a few clicks.
