Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I get my torque wrenches calibrated from Maxpro?
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.
How frequently should you recalibrate industrial torque wrenches?
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. A simpler rule of thumb is to have your torques wrenches calibrated

What does ISO 17025 mean?
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.
Why is ISO 17025 so valuable?
When you use a company that provides calibration according to ISO 17025 standards, you know that they’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.
