Encoder and Easy to Program Controls Allow for Exact Positioning for Critical Tightening Sequence Applications

San Jose, Calif., – The new EZ-Glider Position Control telescoping torque arms by Mountz Inc., helps manufacturers detect and eliminate costly screw-fastening errors during the assembly process. Position Control telescoping torque arms are designed to reduce the risk of improperly fastened screws, ensuring that every screw is in the correctly tightened in the correct sequence. Using the EZ-Glider Position Control torque arm is like putting the eyes and ears of a quality control manager where they are needed most - right in the assembly area.

Crafted with lightweight durable carbon fiber the torque arm collapses like a telescope. The EZ-Glider Position Control telescoping torque arms are easy-to-use, require little space and don’t disrupt production flow. The new telescoping torque arm features models with an operating length that can extend up to 6 1/2 feet. The torque arms are ideal for assembly lines like automotive, aerospace and appliance manufacturing where space is a premium and operator safety is mandatory. Assembly tools can be mounted to a telescoping torque arm and hung above to fixed rail system or a trolley system.

The EZ-Glider Position Control telescoping torque arm consists of a torque reaction arm with encoders mounted at the base and a control box. The control box is used for programming and it tracks the axis movement by converting angle counts to the precise position of the screwdriver. The location is calculated from encoder values, allowing the operator to easily teach the torque arm a programmed sequence pattern and then use it to control the assembly process. Programming is as simple as moving the driver over the sequence location and then pressing a button. Popular features are driver "lock out", which disallows activation of the driver if the wrong sequence is attempted and torque adjust, which automatically changes the driver torque to a new torque value if required.

Assembly sequences are easily programmed for the EZ-Glider Position Control telescoping torque arms from an easy-to-use control box. Up to nine sequence programs can be stored and are manually or automatically selected for easy recall.

“Sequence based fastening is critical to proper process control and a quality fastening result for many applications,” said Brad Mountz, President of Mountz, Inc. “If an assembly exhibits cross talk, a phenomenon where torque to one faster changes the result to another in the in fastening pattern, altering the sequence is often necessary to achieve proper results. An encoded torque arm is perfect because it guides the operators sequence and provides feedback if done incorrectly.”

The EZ-Glider Position Control telescoping torque arm is compatible with most air, electric screwdrivers and DC control systems. The torque arm can also interface with most intelligent driver systems that store multiple torque programs with external digital I/O control. The Mountz Position Control torque arm provides a smooth, flexible range of motion as the arm absorbs torque reactions general from clutch, stall and other electric & pneumatic screwdrivers.

EZ-Glider Position Control telescoping torque arms are designed to improve production and quality control during the assembly process. The ergonomic design of the EZ-Glider torque arm reduces RMI (repetitive motion injury) and CTS (carpal tunnel syndrome). The effortless handling of the torque arm provides comfortable tool operation and increased production. The Mountz torque arm eliminates torque reaction of power and pneumatic tools.
