Gedore Torque's After Sales Department

Today's Quality Assurance Systems demand that measuring torque tools and calibration equipment are checked regularly
and provided with traceable calibration certificates.

Gedore Torque is pleased to provide potential and existing Customers with this full and comprehensive After Sales Service.

On return of any Gedore Torque (formerly Torqueleader) product, the work required to bring the torque tool to prime condition
is assessed and the customer is advised of the cost involved

Once the customer has agreed to go ahead with the amendments, work is carried out to an agreed timescale.

Contact us on +44 (0) 1483 894476 or email for more information on our Torque Tool Repair Services.

When returning your Torque tool please remember to complete and attach the order form (please see below)
with your tool so we know the details of the return.

Torque Tool Lubrication Information

Our tools contain moving parts that require periodic servicing and lubrication. The recommended service interval is twelve months,
5000 cycles or more frequent if usage is high.

If you choose to do your own servicing, the lubrication chart (available to download at the top of the page)
will give details of the recommended oils and greases as used in our tools.

or alternatively give us a call on +44 (0) 1483 894476 and our team will be happy to discuss your booking over the phone.

What can we learn about Torque?

In this section we will learn more about Torque, how it is measured, how to specify the Torque value of fasteners and how to correctly tighten Bolted Joints.

? A Torque Glossary

? An explanation on Torque

? A guide on tightening

These will help you understand the terms used regarding Torque, the different types of Torque Units and how to convert between them.


Torque is the application of force acting at a radial distance and tending
to cause rotation; this is also called torque loading.
It?s used to create tension in threaded fasteners.
When the nut and bolt are tightened the two plates are clamped together.
The thread converts the applied Torque into tension in the bolt shank.
This in turn is converted into a clamping force.
The amount of tension created in the bolt is critical.

  • The tension in the bolt creates a clamping force (generally referred to as the preload) between the two parts.
  • If the clamping force is too low, the fasteners can work loose due to vibrations or movement between the component parts.
  • If a clamping force is too high, the fastener may permanently stretch and no longer apply the required clamping force.
  • In severe cases the fastener may fail in assembly or during use when under loaded.

Torque is the result of multiplying the value of Force applied by
the Distance from the point of application.

Comparing the two examples below (A and B) it will be noted
that the same resultant torque can be achieved with a lower
Force if the Distance from the nut/bolt is increased.

dependent which means that the actual torque applied to the
fastener varies if the hand position on the wrench is varied -
even with the wrench preset. This occurs if the pivot point of the
wrench mechanism is not coincidental with the point of
application of torque.
