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…

Verify and Validate the Torque Output of a Pulse Tool

Built for high production environments, FlexPower pulse tools provide durability, power and speed for most industrial assembly applications. To maintain consistent accuracy, the torque output for pulse tools must be verified periodically. You should also validate the actual torque being applied to the fastener by auditing the joint application. The goal for auditing is to…

Screw Counter

Screw Counter Reduces Costly Screw-Fastening Errors

A screw counter helps manufacturers detect and eliminate costly screw-fastening errors during the assembly process. Using a screw counter is like putting the eyes and ears of a quality control manager where they are needed most – right on the assembly area. The Scout screw counter from Mountz Inc. verifies that all fasteners have been…

Linear Torque Arm

Ergonomic Mindset Helps Ensure Safer Conditions

When using a power tool, torque control is only one element engineers must resolve and get dialed in for a fastening application. There are other issues that engineers should pay attention to as well. Is there any potential ergonomic issues that may arise from the application? What about cross threading and side load occurring as…
