Wiha Torque Control Tools: Find what’s right for you

We’re breaking down our Complete Torque Control Tools offering.torque control tools

It all starts with 2 main types of torque; fixed torque and variable torque tools. Our fixed torque tools are set at a specific level of torque and are unable to be changed, whereas variable torque are able to be adjusted within the range that the tool is rated for.

Both of our Fixed and Variable Torque tools (as well as our screwdrivers) have proportionate handles in regards to the tip/torque size. A larger tip or torque amount calls for a larger handle for optimum mechanical advantage.

When backing a fastener out, our torque control line offers 30-50% more torque to ensure removal is possible. When the set amount of torque has been reached, the handles produce an audible and distinctive click indicating they have been properly fastened.

Fixed Torque

There are 3 different types of fixed torque driver handles that Wiha offers.

Easy Torque

EasyTorque tools are designed for consistent and accurate torquing at a lower price point. Delivering consistent torquing on a indexable carbide cutter would be an example of where EasyTorque thrives. Continue reading “Wiha Torque Control Tools: Find what’s right for you”

#wihabreakfast Review

Asking our followers to post a photo of their breakfast with #wihabreakfast and with their tools might not be the most conventional way to engage them.

#wihabreakfast was born after seeing that breakfast seemed to make a common appearance; shout out to Sparky Channel for having breakfast as your YouTube Cover channel and Tool Boss for having a Wakie Wakie Eggs and Bacie Video   After seeing this, we decided that #wihabreakfast needed to be launched.

#wihabreakfast  details

Our promotion ran from April 16th-20th on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. We received 17 entries , 361 votes, and over 1,000 visits to the Gallery page.
