Accurate Torque Control with New Adjustable Micro Torque Screwdriver by Mountz, Inc.

The new Micro Torque screwdriver, from Mountz, Inc., is an externally adjustable torque tool that offers different setting options for applications that require more than one torque value.

San Jose, CA (I-Newswire) November 19, 2012 - The new Micro Torque screwdriver, from Mountz, Inc., is an externally adjustable torque tool that offers different setting options for applications that require more than one torque value. The adjustable torque screwdriver features an external adjustment torque scale, which allows an operator to quickly and accurately adjust the torque setting on the tool as needed for different applications. The Micro Torque screwdriver is ideal for field service or production applications. A single torque driver can cover a broad variety of applications due to its wide torque range.

Built with a cam-over design, the accurate Micro 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 Micro Torque screwdriver models that range from 20 to 80 The ergonomically designed torque screwdriver provides operator comfort along with quality control. The durable torque driver utilities rugged materials such as stainless steel and aluminum, providing a long service life.

Incorporating a pull-down ring to engage the adjustment mechanism, a simple twist of the collar right or left increases or decreases torque respectively, while a precision radial ball clutch and cam allows for automatic resetting.

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 Quality Standard.
