How to Set the Torque for a Preset Break-Over Wrench

How to Set the Torque for a Preset Break-Over Wrench

A preset break-over torque wrench limits the amount torque applied to a fastener and improves the control of the bolting 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…

EZl-Glider Linear Torque Arms

Improve Safety & Quality with an Ergonomic Torque Arm

The daily repetitive process of fastening screw after screw with a power tool exposes operators to the risk of injury. An assembly operator freely holding and using a power tool is an opportunity for cross threading and side load to occur, which causes fastening failures. Implementing an ergonomic torque arm into the assembly process will…
