Metric Fasteners and Torque
Applying the right torque to a fastener is something of a balancing act. Add too little torque and your fastener becomes a “non-fastener “– it simply slides back out of the hole. Add too much torque, however, and the force may be more than the screw can bear, causing stripped threads or even outright breakage. The materials that make up the fastener will have some say in how much torque you can safely apply. Nylon and softer metals will enjoy less torque tolerance than, say, stainless steel. Automated assembly lines for specific applications have to be told how much torque to apply. Once the ideal amount of torque is known for a particular assembly or sub-assembly, the machines that drive the fasteners into place can then deliver that precise amount every time.
