Precision Instruments, Inc.
The Finest Torque Products
Incorporated since 1938
All American made from
In 1938, K.R. Larson founded Precision Instruments, Inc. to manufacture the first dial-type torque wrench. Now
65 years and 65 patents later, Precision Instruments has become a leader in the industry, known for providing the
most accurate, dependable and reliable torque wrenches in the world. Precision Instruments provides the tools
that industry can trust to perform in demanding environments. Our mission at Precision Instruments is to design,
manufacture and produce torque equipment for demanding applications where compliance with torque specifications is
absolutely necessary for safety and performance.
Since its incorporation, Precision Instruments has been a family owned and operated business. Precision Instruments'
philosophy, of providing quality and service above all else, has been the key to the company's success. Based on that
philosophy, the 65-year tradition of producing all products in-house continues today. All of Precision's press work,
milling, drilling and turning is done inside our state of the art machine shop. After machining, all polishing, welding,
plating, assembly and calibration is conducted on-site at precision. The result is that in every way Precision products
are products of Precision employees. From their pride in their work comes the quality only found in products that are
handcrafted. The tremendous accuracy, dependability and attractiveness that transcends all product lines is the direct
result of products produced with that philosophy.
We understand that for critical applications, "tight enough" simply isn't "good enough." Additionally, "good enough"
isn't the same as "correct." Thousands of applications exist where fasteners must have the correct amount of torque
applied to truly perform. For those applications, Precision Instruments provides the tools you can trust.
