Electric screwdrivers with brushless motors have an extremely long operating life with no need for regular maintenance or replacement of expendable parts (carbon brushes, rotor, switches and other contact points). Heat generated by the motor is reduced and screwdriver performance is always at the maximum level resulting in reliable product quality. The brushless electric screwdriver ensures product quality, cost savings and a reduction in overall failures.
With almost no expendable parts and simple design, the brushless screwdriver life cycle is extended and maintains a clean working environment. The screwdriver requires less maintenance and part replacement and provides consistently reliable performance.
The LF-Series is an economical brushless electric torque screwdriver. These durable power tools feature a Swiss Maxon brushless motor design, which reduces the standard maintenance costs for electric screwdrivers. Additionally, costly mechanical micro switches have been eliminated in the LF-Series in favor of non-contact magnetic sensors. Mountz brushless electric torque screwdrivers are designed for precision torque control and are state-of-the-art in the assembly industry.
Solving fastening problems is about controlling variables or eliminating potential causes that create an unwanted fastening event. Let’s take a look at common unwanted fastening events. Cross threading, thread or component stripping, unseated fasteners, missing screw, nut or bolt (omissions) these are all evident events of failure that we can see with our eyes. Thank goodness for our eyesight, because these are easily recognized. Fastening problems that we cannot see are our biggest risk. Latent failure can be a big problem depending on the product or exposure to risk or liability. Latent failure is caused not only by under torque, but largely by over torque events. Most all of us have opened a product package and discovered a screw or nut that came loose in transit. We might have also found one on the floorboard of our car. Many times these screws or nuts are not critical, they may come from the exterior of a product. However, they still concern us. They should. It makes us wonder if something more critical might also fail. Every time we find one of these rogue fasteners something did not go as planned, thus a torque related problem or unwanted fastening event has occurred. These occurrences are frustrating, time consuming and many times create delay and cost. You can get rid of them!
Let’s not over complicate things when we study fastening variables. In our experience there is only a handful of really complicated fastening problems and most of our customers don’t experience many of these all that often. Generally, it is a simple set of variables that need to be discovered, isolated and removed to solve fastening related headaches. It’s important to thoroughly investigate in a scientific manner what may be wrong with the fastening scenario. More important is not to freak out and think that everything is wrong, and try to change too many things too fast. The process of elimination is a great tool for solving fastening failure. Fasteners are generally made to a specification that defines physical criteria. The information is public and validating dimensions is not hard. You can do it on line or in most any hand book.
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.
Electric Torque Screwdrivers are designed for precision torque control and ensure product quality, cost savings and a reduction in overall assembly failures. The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn’t properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently torqued can vibrate loose, and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners or damage parts. Using a quality assembly torque tool is important for many companies to ensure that proper torque is being applied and maintain requirements associated with the ISO 9001 quality standard.
Listed below is quick reference guide for selecting from the various common electric torque screwdrivers available.
Direct Plug-in Electric Screwdrivers These tools plug directly into a power outlet without the need for a transformer (power supply). A direct plug-in electric screwdriver is intended for low to medium cycle applications. The electric screwdriver is designed to install a fastener then rest for 3.5 seconds before you install the next fastener. The reason is that all the electronics are built into the power tool and it may over-heat and damage the tool. These reliable power tools automatically shuts-off when the preset torque has been reached.
DC Powered Electric Screwdrivers For high production applications, an electric screwdriver with a transformer (power supply) is built for these applications. Low voltage electric screwdriver automatically stops when the preset torque has been reached. Various models and styles.
Brushless Electric Screwdriver: Designed for high production environments, the electric screwdriver features a high performance brushless motor design that provides durability and reduces the standard maintenance costs for electric screwdrivers.
The YF-Series is a new line of ESD brushless electric torque screwdrivers from Mountz, Inc. With the increasing need for sophisticated fastening torque tools by manufacturers, the YF-Series power tools offer various programmable features to meet the evolving demands from the manufacturing industry. Mountz is offering various YF electric screwdriver models covering a torque range from 6.1 inch-pounds up to 78.1 inch-pounds.
Listening to the feedback from customers and meeting the constant changes and advancements in the manufacturing environment, the YF-Series provides multiple options for engineers to program the brushless screwdriver to meet their own assembly requirements. These reliable torque screwdrivers feature a programmable speed, angle and auto reverse option. Along with a selectable “Soft Start” operating mode and a “Multi-Hit” mode. Mountz brushless electric torque screwdrivers are designed for precision torque control and have become the state-of-the-art in the assembly industry.
Adjustable RPM Setting:
Adding the adjustable speed control provides manufacturers with the versatility to quickly change the tool settings as production projects change. In this recovering economy, manufacturers are looking to save time by improving the efficiency of their production space and methods. Manufacturers are seeking versatile assembly tools that are equipped to handle quick changes in the production environment. The new adjustable speed control setting for the YF-Series screwdriver allows the operator to adjust the RPM directly on the controller.
Soft Start Mode Setting:
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 electronic applications. There are 3 different time settings for the Soft Start mode, which are (0.2, 0.4 & 0.6 seconds).
