Measurement of static and dynamic rotary forces
Dynamic rotary force measurement is typically carried out using torque sensors on test objects which are rotated – during the movement.
Static rotary force measurement, on the other hand, is always carried out when the item is at rest.
The SAUTER range includes static torque measuring devices for determining the force expended when opening rotary or screw caps of bottles.
Further typical applications of static torque measuring devices are testing of assembly tools for screws and nuts, in particular torque keys and mechanical assembly tools such as cordless electric screw drivers.
