It depends on the wrench, and how it’s being used. Calibration is important because it ensures that a torque wrench is accurate and reliable. Some professionals suggest calibration after 2,500 repetitions, working on the idea that the tool’s performance is affected between 2,500 and 3,000 repetitions.
We can calibrate Manual, Pneumatic, Battery, Electric, and Hydraulic torque wrenches along with Pressure Gauges and Transducers:
- Torque transducers from 0 to 6,000 ft. lbs.
- Torque wrenches from 50 to 50,000 ft. lbs.
- Pressure gauges from 0 to 10,000 PSI.
- Hydraulic, pneumatic, and electric wrenches
Developed 20 years ago, ISO 17025 is a standard that shows that a calibration lab is operating in a technically proficient fashion using a documented quality system to produce accurate results. In our industry, ISO 17025 is considered the premier standard for calibration labs.
When you use a company that provides calibration according to ISO 17025 standards, you know that you’re working with a lab that:
- Uses a formal, written quality program for all processes and procedures
- Offers formal training in ISO 17025 processes
- Has its work checked and audited by an outside accreditation group, such as A2LA
In addition, ISO 17025 calibration will give you peace of mind that:
- The person who performed the calibration is fully trained and qualified
- A written procedure is followed for every calibration
- Environmental factors are being monitored and maintained
Maxpro has been an ISO 17025 accredited lab since 2015. We know why ISO 17025 is so valuable and are proud of the investment we've made to reach this important milestone.
Some tools can function for a long time without needing much special care, while others require regular adjustment. Torque wrenches fall into that second category, demanding regular calibration performed by professionals.
From receipt of the tool, our goal turn around is about 5 to 7 business days.

We do offer mobile calibration services. Our calibration van is also ISO 17025 accredited. Let us come to your facility, so your tools don’t have to come to us.
Our inventory on parts is very deep and we will just sell parts if needed. However, the best way to be sure that your tool gets the correct parts installed is to send them to our state-of-the-art service center.
Yes, you can. Manual Clicker, Pneumatic, Battery, Electric, and Hydraulic torque wrenches are available from our rental fleet.
Yes, most of our rental tools are available for resale. If you have a rental with us and are interested in purchasing the tool that you have, we can make arrangements for you to purchase that equipment at a very fair market price.
Yes, any of the tools that you might be renting are also available as new tools.
Yes, if you are picking tools up at our facility, we will go over the operation process with you in our shop. We can also make arrangements to do some type of live video training for anyone who can’t come to our facility. At the very least we can walk you through a problem or situation right over the phone.
Yes! Our inventory is usually very deep, however, there are times that our inventory can become low due to "turn arounds" or "Shut downs”. Lead times on replacement tools can be 2 to 4 weeks.
