First, what are mechanical wrenches?
By definition, mechanical wrenches are adjusted for one target torque and they have inner moving parts. Therefore, they are not used for measurement and of course there is no integrated transducer.
Mechanical wrenches are usually the easiest and simplest way to ensure a minimum reached torque on a joint. They are usually lower in operational costs than other tools, while offering a very quick setup and fast tool replacements.
Manual torque wrenches are light weighted and ensure good ergonomics. They can provide good quality standards also in narrow areas, as sometimes the joint accessibility is very poor and electrical tools are too big to fit into the cramped spaces.
