Original Press Release
New TALS Wireless Torque Wrench System by Mountz Inc.
Press release date: October 1, 2009
San Jose, Calif., - Mountz Inc., a specialist in the design and manufacture of torque control products for over 40 years introduces the TALS wireless torque wrench system. The revolutionary new torque wrench system not only frees assembly workers from restrictive cables, but also offers multiple channel and tool tracking capability in a single unit. The TALS wireless torque wrench system is ideal for monitoring the production line and aides manufacturers with detecting and eliminating costly screw-fastening errors during the assembly process.
The easy-to-operate TALS torque wireless wrench makes the assembly line more efficient. The quality control system ensures that all fasteners are accounted for during the assembly process and verifies that all fasteners have been installed and were seated to the tools preset torque setting. These units take the control of the assembly process out of the operator's hands.
Compatible with most production line control systems, the TALS wireless torque wrench system is a cost affective way of monitoring torque applications during the production process. The second generation wireless fastener system operates on an FM frequency. The TALS wrench is equipped with a small, battery-powered transceiver at the end of its handle in place of a cord attachment. When a preset torque is reached, the wireless torque wrench sends an FM signal to the TALS Core monitoring device that records the fastener as fastened.
The TALS solution allows for easy data sharing. After the readings have been recorded, easily download the readings and wrench data for easy SPC analysis and creating quality control documents.
Without the hazards of cables, the TALS wireless wrench system provides a safe operating environment and reduces potential work-related injuries, as it operators don't need to worry about tripping on cords. With the cost for worker's compensation continuing to increase, manufacturers are looking for smart cost-effective assembly torque tool solutions that reduce time and expenses as well help lessen the costs of insurance claims.
Manufacturers can use the TALS for on-line monitoring of critical fasteners in their production line to ensure the line will only move when the required number of fastening operations has been confirmed. Lapses in preventing fastening errors can affect the bottom line. The later an error is detected on the assembly line, the more it costs in rework time and expenses. If a fastening error is committed and detected during the assembly process, the operator can it fix by properly completing the process or prevent the faulty product from being moved down the line.
The flexible wireless torque wrench system is available in cam-over or break-over torque wrench models. Controlling torque is quintessential 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.
