The TBIH is a small torque wrench ideal for applications with limited space. The flexible preset wrench can be used for a variety of applications with the ability to change head configurations like open, box, flare, hex key or a ratchet head. When the TBIH torque wrench achieves torque, the head breaks-over signaling to the operator to stop applying torque to the fastener or bolt.
Break-Over torque wrenches are essential to limiting the amount of torque applied to an assembly or fastening. Break-over torque wrenches, typically deflect 20-90 degrees on torque delivery, thus indicating torque has been reached. Many break-over wrenches require manual resetting, while others have an automatic resetting feature.
The slim TBIH torque wrench is a pre-set tool that offers a tamper-proof internal torque adjustment setting. There is no external adjustment scale, so the wrench must be preset using a torque tester. Small and lightweight, the TBIH wrench is ideal for applications with limited space. Mountz offers various TBIH torque wrench models covering a torque range of 25 inch-ounces up to 50 inch-pounds.
Break-over wrenches improve control of the fastening process by reducing the risk of both over and under tightening. Upon reaching the preset torque value, the tool “breaks” at a specific point along the tool’s shaft – usually at a pivot point near the tool’s head. The unique break-over mechanism, provides an operator ample time to react once the target torque is reached and to stop applying any additional force to the fastener.
Using a quality torque wrench makes a safer world through accuracy and precision. 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 fastened can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners.
