Torque Measurement in Production Control and Production Monitoring
During production monitoring, the measuring equipment is integrated directly into the production equipment or the production process. Typical applications include determining viscosity by means of torque or monitoring screwing operations by measuring the torque and the angle of rotation.
In addition to this, there are a vast number of special applications, such as inhaler manufacturing or torque control on steel mill trains.
Closely related to this are the measurements made when screwing up filled products. With medicines, for example, torque measurement ensures the best-possible bottle closure, thus preventing contamination and ultimately the risk to health.
