Mountz, Inc. introduces new ATB torque wrench models that are designed for low torque applications. The adjustable torque wrench breaks over upon reaching the preset torque value and resets automatically. The ATB wrench reduces the likelihood of warranty and a rework by assuring process control through accurate and repeatable torque control. The wrench is designed for variety of industries like aerospace, automotive, electronics, energy, medical, and packaging.
The ATB torque wrench is fast and accurate to set the using the quick and clear-to-read micrometer setting scale. The accurate torque wrench reduces the risk of a fastener or bolt from being under and over tightened. The unique breaking mechanism allows an operator more time to react once the target torque is achieved.
Once the break-over wrench achieves torque, the head breaks-over signaling to the operator to stop applying torque to the fastener or bolt. At the set torque, the handle of the ATB wrench moves through an angle of 20º before resetting. The use of a break-over torque wrench offers more accurate and repeatable results than a standard ‘click’ type wrench. A click wrench typically breaks about 3 degrees after set torque is reached and then becomes positive. If the operator continues to pull on the click wrench, he or she can over tighten the fastener.
Built for torque control and durability, the FlexC cordless torque screwdrivers use a high capacity lithium-ion battery. These rugged cordless assembly tools increase productivity and enhance product quality through precision torque control and user comfort. The cordless screwdrivers are ideal for applications where air or electric power is not easily accessible. The cordless torque screwdrivers automatically stop when the preset torque has been reached.
For the demanding fastening applications where speed and maneuverability are key assembly requirements, the cordless tools operate at lengthy periods between charges and are flexible for tight space applications. The FlexPower cordless screwdrivers feature an ergonomic hand grip designed to improve control and reduce fatigue in long fastening applications.
The PSE is an ergonomic pre-set torque screwdriver that’s ideal for production applications where over-torque conditions are not tolerated. Built with a cam-over design, the accurate PSE torque screwdriver prevents a fastener or bolt from being under and over tightened. The design action of the cam-over torque screwdriver is such that when the tool reaches its pre-set torque value the mechanism disengages from the drive thus limiting the torque applied. Designed for variety of industries like medical, aerospace, semiconductor, electronics, and communications, the PSE torque screwdriver ensures proper torque control.
A pre-set torque screwdriver is similar to a person setting an alarm clock to signal the achievement of a selected time. The torque screwdriver is pre-set to the required torque value of the application and then the tool signals the operator when torque is achieved.
Selecting the right torque tool for the job is crucial. Selecting the incorrect torque tool can affect production yields, manufacturing costs, product quality, product reliability, reputation and profitability.
What is an impact wrench? A wrench that uses a discontinuous drive clutch system and compressed air to achieve torque. Impact wrenches are commonly used tool in the world. The wrench is often used to tighten lug nuts on cars for tire changes.
Impact wrenches are destructive by nature with its “hammering” design. An impact wrench can easily damage parts and the threads of a fastener due to the lack of proper torque control. The wrench is not designed for toque control. The tool tends to under and over tighten the fastening application.
Designed for high production environments, the E-DRIV BF-Series feature a high performance brushless motor design that provides durability and reduces the standard maintenance costs for electric screwdrivers. Mountz offers a variety of models including BF brushless electric screwdriver with an adjustable RPM setting directly on the tool as well as a selectable “Soft Start” option.
The adjustable speed control provides manufacturers with the versatility to quickly change the tool settings as production projects change. The selectable “Soft Start” mode is for applications that require the power tool to slowly ramp-up to its operating speed, perfect for plastic or sensitive applications.
