Adjustable Torque Screwdriver Prevents a Fastener From Being Under and Over Tightened
The Ergo Micro Torque Screwdriver is an externally adjustable tool that offers different setting options for applications that require more than one torque value. The adjustable screwdriver does feature an external adjustment scale, which allows for an operator to adjust the torque setting as needed for the application. The EMT is ideal for field service or production applications as the adjustable screwdriver provides manufacturers with flexibility.
Crafted with a soft texture grip, the Ergo Micro Torque Screwdriver is an ergonomically safe tool for the operator to use. The comfortable rubber grip reduces ergonomic stress and fatigue for operators during repetitive or multi-step processes.
Built with a cam-over design, the accurate Ergo Torque screwdriver prevents a fastener or bolt from being under and over tightened. The design action of the cam-over screwdrivers is such that when the tool reaches its set torque value the mechanism disengages from the drive thus limiting the torque applied. Inside the screwdriver, a precision radial ball clutch "slips-free" when the set torque is reached preventing under and over tightening. Also, the thrust bearings insure that the torque setting is independent of any end load applied by the operator. As quality control tool, the torque screwdriver allows any user to deliver the correct torque with confidence regardless of task and operator skill level.
Designed and manufactured to meet or exceed the accuracy and repeatability requirements of ISO6789: 2003, Mountz offers various Ergo Micro Torque Screwdriver models that range from 10 ozf.in to 80 lbf.in.
Controlling torque is essential for companies to ensure their product's quality, safety and reliability isn't compromised. 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. Using a quality torque screwdriver has become increasingly important for many companies to ensure that proper torque is being applied and maintains gauge requirements associated with the ISO 9001
