ISO 11953 Hand torque instruments*

DIN EN ISO 11953 describes a test concerning the torque wrenches for setting dental implants. The aim is to check the repeat accuracy of the torque display or the triggering of the torque wrench. The operating principle of the torque wrench may be based on various mechanisms, e.g. a bending wire with scale display or a ratchet that signals the achievement of the desired torque by a click. For the dentist, in practice, the question arises how precise the torques are still maintained after a certain number of applications. With our torque test bench, additional fatigue tests, and instrument processing for reuse, we simulate the applications in an accelerated manner.
