Qld Cal AdminAug 28, '23

In the constantly evolving world of technology, standards are frequently updated to ensure accuracy and efficiency. Torque tools calibration is no exception, and there's a new standard in town that you need to know about - ISO 6789. Are you getting your torque tools calibrated to this new standard? Let's delve into what this means for your business.

Introducing the New Standard: ISO 6789

ISO 6789 is the latest standard for torque tools calibration. Unlike previous guidelines, this standard introduces significant changes by separating testing into two distinct categories. Understanding these categories is crucial for ensuring your tools are calibrated correctly.

Two Categories, Two Approaches

The new standard divides testing into two categories, each with a different approach:

  • Type 1 Testing: Focuses on the design conformance of a torque tool. This category ensures that the tool meets the specifications provided by the manufacturer.
  • Type 2 Testing: Centres on the calibration of the torque tool, verifying its performance to achieve the desired accuracy.

Your company's specific needs will determine which testing category is required. The answer to this lies within your quality documentation.

What Does This Mean for You?

Understanding the new standard is essential for ensuring your torque tools are calibrated to meet current best practices. If you're unsure about what testing category your company requires, consult your quality documentation. It will outline how torque tools should be calibrated according to the latest requirements.
