Introducing the TorqueMate Digital Screwdriver by Mountz Inc.

/EIN News/ The TorqueMate Electronic Torque Screwdriver is a new digital torque screwdriver from Mountz Inc. The TorqueMate is a microprocessor controlled electronic torque screwdriver. The digital screwdriver ensures product quality, cost savings and a reduction in overall production failures through complete monitoring of the fastening and assembly process with full data collection of the measured values. The efficiency and manufacturing cost-savings that the TorqueMate provides, will ultimately translate into more products shipped quickly, with fewer defects.

The user-friendly interface makes it quick and simple to setup torque testing and auditing parameters with the electronic screwdriver. The compact TorqueMate screwdriver features a memory capacity that stores more than 2000 values; detailing date, time, and torque measurement values. The statistical data can be easily downloaded from wrench allowing operators to evaluate the torque results in ASCII or binary format and store test data. In manufacturing environments, test data for tools are commonly shared between various departments, typically Research & Development, Production, Cal Lab and Quality Control. The TorqueMate allows for easy data sharing.

As an advanced torque controlling, monitoring and documentation solution, TorqueMate digital screwdriver enables operators and engineers to ensure product quality, safety and reliability promptly in a variety of manufacturing environments. The TorqueMate can be used for torque calibration, joint testing, auditing or verification of torque applied. Designed for R&D, Quality Control, a lab, and maintenance or production areas the TorqueMate electronic screwdriver is ideal for testing and storing test data for ISO, SPC and QC documentation.

The flexible TorqueMate screwdriver features programmable pre-sets (max. 99) that can be uploaded from PC (software provided), all with individual minimum and maximum limits and percentage tolerances. The TorqueMate digital screwdriver offers various models that cover a torque range capacity of 7.1 up to 12 lbf.ft. The screwdriver provides audible and visual alarm signals for the operator as he/she approaches and achieves preset torque values. And it also provides an over torque warning system. Mountz also offer TorqueMate electronic wrench version as well with the same features, which features a torque range capacity from 1.4 lbf.ft up to 250 lbf.ft.

Controlling torque is quintessential 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.
