Fail Safe Engineering March 2017
An out of tolerance torque tester doesn't prevent errors, it creates errors. Like a torque wrench just looking at your digital torque tester will not tell you whether or not your tester is in or out of tolerance. Sturtevant Richmont TorqTronics 2 and System 8 digital torque testers have built-in error proofing. We call it Fail Safe Engineering. It is an eight step protocol that immediately calls attention to the potential issue. If the cal tech ignores the signals the system automatically provides full traceability for every tool that was tested between the over torque event and the remedy. Fail Safe Engineering comes with "Elephant Memory" that tracks over torque events. We all it Elephant Memory because it cannot be erased. Like an elephant, the system never forgets.
