The Standard by Which Torque is Measured - Torque Wrench Calibration Systems



  • The TSD 3000 computer controlled torque-sense® torque testing system is a fully integrated computer controller designed to apply and hold torque, and/or sense the click or breaking torque readings. The powerful software programs, controls, reads, stores, sorts and prints the data.
  • Our patented TSD 3001 controller is a unique true torque sensing and reacting "state of the art" electronic package, with dual serial 1/0 communicating with our TSD 1200, TSD 6000 digital torque indicators. The servo mechanism drives the high efficiency ball screw of the rugged, versatile, time proven TSD 2050, TSD 2060, TSD 4050, torque loaders.
  • The 3001 controller integrates TSD 3005 and bar code reader. The power of the PC personal computer programs, reads, acquires, stores and sorts data. The menu driven user friendly software allows you to generate reports of calibration, inventory list by type, make, model, range capacity, operator name or number, date, equipment due to be calibrated reports and more.
  • The TSD 3005 bar code system can read existing 3 of 9 bar code labels, and also issue control commands via our quick command bar code pad. Optional bar code generating system for printing labels is available.
