Stahlwille covers new torque tool standard in revamped training programme

The new standard for testing and calibrating torque tools is now included in Stahlwille's training workshop programme.

Stahlwille has also launched an online training app for mobile devices to help bring know-how to end users and the trade.

Stahlwille's training programme is for its customers, end users, sales staff, and apprentices & trainees at vocational training colleges. A wide range of attendance workshops are on offer, with classic introductions to the function, handling and repair of tools and detailed technical instruction required for checking and calibrating torque tools.

The new standard for torque tools - DIN EN ISO 6789:2017, which came into force a few months ago - is the new item on the training course.

"This topic is causing quite a disturbance amongst customers and calibration laboratories," explained Training Manager Andreas Kolfhaus. "This is why we explain exactly in this new module what has changed in the new standard and how to run checks and calibrations today."

As with all product and user training courses at Stahlwille, hands-on practice plays a central role: as part of the training workshop, the participants have the opportunity to apply the skills they have just learned on a Stahlwille calibrating unit. All the attendance workshops take place at the Wuppertal-Cronenberg location in Stahlwille's completely refurbished historical Kontor Customer and Training Centre.

Supplementing the attendance workshops, Stahlwille's recently launched online training app enables users, independent of locations and schedules, to study the topics of "Mechanical torque wrenches", "Electronic torque wrenches", "Application engineering", "DIN EN ISO 6789:2017" and "Repairs" in detail. Use of the modules, some of which require a payment, involves prior registration. The app is currently available in German but an English version is scheduled for this autumn.

Further details of the training workshops offered by Stahlwille can be found at STAHLWILLE Schulungen.
