Reducing the severity and number of fastening errors and failures due to either tooling technology or an assembly process is a key objective for an engineer. It’s critical that engineers understand the need for quality torque control when fastening threaded bolts and screws. Selecting the wrong torque tool for an assembly application will result in product failures and unneeded expenses. The demand for precision torque performance is a measurement of quality for any manufacturer.
Assembling fastened joints time after time, engineers need to select a durable and high performing torque tool. The TLS Pro torque screwdriver allows any user to deliver the correct torque with confidence regardless of the fastening application and operator skill level. The preset torque screwdriver is ideal for production applications where over-torque conditions are not tolerated.
The new TLS Pro series by Mountz is the next generation preset torque screwdriver. These new tools are an upgrade to the reliable and trusted Mountz cam-over torque screwdriver technology. The screwdrivers were engineered to enhance the user experience during the fastening process. The new screwdriver offers the same performance, same quality, same torque results as the old dependable TLS screwdriver. The new modern design of the TLS PRO improves the durability and the ergonomic experience for the assembly operator. Making a safer world through accuracy and precision is the core purpose at Mountz.

A preset torque screwdriver does not feature an external adjustment scale. These tools have internal adjustment mechanism for setting the torque value and must be preset using a torque tester. Preset screwdrivers are typically used for production applications where there is one torque setting required. However, if the torque specification changes or a new project requires a different torque setting, the preset torque screwdriver is still flexible enough that a new torque setting can be set internally using a torque analyzer.
Using a quality torque 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.
