General Info

The RTM 2000 Series are hollow flanged style reaction torquemeters available in ranges from 60 lbf-in to 100,000 lbf-in.

Reaction torque measurements permit accurate determination of static and dynamic torque with a stationary or non-rotating transducer.  They are based on Newton’s third law of angular motion, which states, “when a body exerts a torque upon another body, the second exerts an equal torque upon the first in the opposite direction and about the same axis of rotation.”

The torquemeter will accurately measure the instantaneous tool output torque even though it rises rapidly as the fastener seats.
