Torque meters, or dial torque wrenches are often used to verify or monitor torque, but can also be used in production. Manual versions rely on visual verification of torque applied using a scale or meter affixed to a handheld torque tool. While these models typically rely on the flexibility of a main bar correlated to the affixed scale, adjustment is typically required as the wrench is used.
Newer, technologically advanced models rely on digital tracking rather than a visual reading from the equipment user. This increases the accuracy and some models even have the capability to store multiple readings so the user can retrieve readings in a group rather than individually.
