Torque Multiplier Repair
Torque Multiplier Repair vs. Replacement
Most industries rely on torque wrenches and multipliers to function appropriately. Moreover, workers in these industries depend on the wrenches’ accuracy for safety and quality reasons. It is crucial to maintain the tools by adhering to the scheduled calibration properly. Nevertheless, devices get worn out with time, and breakdowns happen, creating a need for emergency repair.
At times the damage is too severe to be solved by typical repair. The only sensible option will be a replacement. In most cases, the general rule you should use to decide is to do the math. If the repair expenses are more than half the cost of a new torque multiplier or wrench, then you should purchase a new one.
The ageing factor can also be helpful when making this decision. Most aged equipment will often need repairs. In that case, the repair expenses will exceed the replacement cost within no time. Therefore, it is rational to purchase new equipment. So, how do you know whether you require a torque multiplier repair or replacement? Read on and find out!
