The Importance of Preventative Torque Sensor Maintenance

Whether you are using your torque measurement products at home or at your workspace, chances are you will need to invest in simple maintenance once in a while. In general, there are five types of load cells depending on the primary and secondary element that is used to measure the force. These include strain gage type load cells, diaphragm load cells, hydraulic load cells, and both, spool type and ring type load cells.

Here are some of the testing and torque sensor maintenance options that will help you achieve the best torque measurements.


You will want to regularly calibrate your load cells, force, and torque to ensure your machine is working efficiently. When looking for a company that does this, make sure that they include both load and torque sensor capabilities, a very small margin for error when determining accuracy, and everything is documented step by step to ensure accurate readings for your preferred torque measuring units.

Customized Sensor Design

Your torque measurement product is made specifically for the job at hand, so you will want to make sure it is customized to fit your needs. After all, why would you want to invest in something that doesn’t do the job correctly the first time?

Field Measurements

The field measurements on your product serve many purposes. They are used as a way to determine its structural integrity, to troubleshoot the equipment to make sure it works, certify legal compliance, and confirm analytical models. The perfect measurements are usually done by installing different sensors and testing them using multiple different methods to find the most accurate measurement.

Strain Gaging Services

A strain gage is a sensor whose resistance varies when force is applied. In order to get the most accurate torque wrench measurements, the gage must be updated routinely. Depending on what you use your torque wrench for, the specific field measurements for strain gaging will be customized.

Here at Sensing Systems, we offer all the above services to ensure your torque is as accurate as possible. Our professionals will come to you, wherever the location, and customize our services based on your needs.
