The daily repetitive process of fastening screw after screw with a power tool exposes operators to the risk of injury. An assembly operator freely holding and using a power tool is an opportunity for cross threading and side load to occur, which causes fastening failures. Implementing an ergonomic torque arm into the assembly process will […]

Ergonomic Torque Arms

A poorly designed and functioning assembly worksite leads to potential employee injuries and additional expenses can incur. With large volume manufacturing facilities, power tools are often used for tightening down fasteners. Assembly power tools increase productivity and reduce manufacturing costs. Tools that operate at high speeds increase risk factors. Power tools generally produce unwanted torque […]

Position Control Torque Arm Systems

Many joints consist of more than one fastener and tightening together surfaces that are not completely flat can be a very challenging torque problem. The sequence of tightening fasteners can have a major influence on the resulting preload and clamping force, which is what holds two parts together. With such joints, consideration should be given […]
