A torque arm can significantly improve your assembly line's ergonomics.

What is a Torque Arm? Why You Need One to Improve Worker Safety

Work on assembly lines depends on repetition, and using power torque tools to perform the same task over and over is tiring. Employee fatigue dramatically increases the possibility of errors that reduce the reliability of the final product. These repetitive motions on assembly lines also carry the risk of repetitive stress injuries that can result…

Ideal Torque Screwdrivers for Improving Electronic Manufacturing and Assembly Quality

Electronics manufacturing and assembly poses unique challenges. The need for miniaturization necessitates the use of small screws and delicate substrates. In addition, electronic components can be damaged beyond repair by the inadvertent discharge of static electricity from torque tools. Finally, the volume at which electronics must often be manufactured to ensure profitability requires high-speed, low-maintenance…

How the Right Torque Screwdriver Ensures Consistent Quality

Most people have heard of torque wrenches even if they don’t work with tools. Relatively few people have heard of torque screwdrivers, though, and those who have usually work in specialized fields where they are commonly used. In other fields, like automotive repair or facilities maintenance, the reaction to finding a torque tolerance for a…
