What is Torque?
The measurement of a turning or twisting force. A simple example is the force required to turn the head of a bolt on an automotive chassis. When torque is applied to the head of a bolt during the fastening process there are two main forces at work. First we are applying a force which is the torque to the bolt head to tighten it. The second force is the tensile or stretch created that runs the length of the bolt. These two forces are closely related. The more torque applied to the bolt head, the more tension or "stretch" is applied to the length of the bolt.

Why is Torque Important?
When we apply torque to fasteners we are clamping parts together. The amount of torque applied determines how well the fastener does its job in the long run. If we apply too little torque, the fastener can vibrate and eventually loosen. If we apply too much torque the fastener will over stress and can break or strip the threads.

Torque Limiting Screwdrivers:
Apex Fasteners provides an engineered solution by offering Torque Limiting Screwdrivers.
Crafted with durable aluminum housings to reduce weight and maximize durability, they feature a unique roller bearing cam which provides smooth, accurate, and consistent performance when tightening fasteners. When the maximum torque setting is achieved, the cam mechanism automatically slips to prevent over-tightening. Six standard models are available for light duty applications including general electronic and computer assembly. Our two miniature torque limiting screwdrivers offer reliable fastening of the very smallest of applications such as cellular phone assembly.
