As manufacturing ramps for a product, engineers often search for tooling options to increase productivity, lower costs and reduce potential torque failures. Power driven screwdrivers are suitable for an assortment of assembly applications. Electric torque screwdrivers are designed for precision torque control and ensure product quality, cost savings and a reduction in overall assembly failures. Screws and bolts that are not properly torqued can vibrate loose, and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners or damage parts.
The EF-Series power tools are built for tightening small screws, nuts and bolts. These mechanical clutch screwdrivers offer excellent fastening capability. The low-torque electric screwdrivers provide automatic shutoff capabilities for sensitive electronics or other low-torque applications. The electric screwdriver automatically stops when the preset torque value is achieved. The EF-Series electric screwdrivers are NRTL certified from TUV America, Inc. The certification ensures manufacturing companies are purchasing and operating a quality and safe tool for its operators.
Key Benefits of a Low-Torque Electric Screwdriver

- Designed to increase productivity and enhance product quality through precision torque control and user comfort.
- Ensures accuracy in fastening with precision automatic shut-off clutch once preset torque is achieved.
- Features a low-voltage, heavy-duty motor design.
- External torque adjustment scale.
- Available in Lever, Push-to-Start and ESD models.
- Can be connected with the Scout Screw Counter.
- RoHS-compliant, CE approved and NRTL certified.
Power Supply for Electric Torque Screwdriver
The electric screwdriver utilizes a separate transformer (power supply). The transformer may look like a simple little box that an electric torque screwdriver plugs into, but in recent years new technologies and innovative features have been added to these power supplies. It’s important to understand the different technologies used in power supplies.
These durable assembly tools increase productivity and enhance product quality through precision torque control and user comfort. Mountz offers various models of the EF-Series tool that ranges from 0.3 to 15.6 inch-pounds. These assembly tools are often used for light assembly applications for industries like, aerospace, electronics and medical manufacturing. The tools are available with ESD safe housings and non-ESD options. The versatile torque driver features an external torque adjustment scale, which allows for easy torque adjustment.
You don’t need an air compressor, air hose, filter, regulator or lubricator when selecting an electric torque screwdriver. The nuisances of operating a pneumatic tool can quickly disrupt the manufacturing process if the tool isn’t properly managed. If the air pressure fluctuates in the airline, it can influence the performance and torque accuracy of a pneumatic tool.
Using a quality electric screwdriver 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.
