Quickly Convert that Torque Spec
Torque Specifications = Foot Pounds, Kilogram-Force per Square Centimeter, Newton Meters, etc. Where does it all end?
When looking at a torque specifications table, all I want to know is the specification I need and then move on.
Today’s torque specification tables seem to provide a variety of measurements. I’m not a mathematician and need all the help I can get trying to make sense of it. As an editor here at Mitchell 1, I am constantly checking, verifying and updating torque specifications. The ability to quickly convert a specification to one I can use is invaluable, as well as a great time saver.
Fortunately, there is a quick and easy way to convert specifications built right into TruckSeries (and also ProDemand on the automotive side). It’s a calculator that can be used for numerous types of conversions. See below:
You’ll find the Calculator under Settings – look for the gear icon in the upper left corner of the TruckSeries application.
Now, if you want to use your mobile device to do the calculation, there are a few free conversion apps available that work very well. These days almost everyone has a smartphone, iPad or tablet within reach. Here are some links to apps for Apple and Android systems (and yes, ads are included at no extra charge). Try one of these apps and see if it helps you out.
