New ATB Adjustable Break-Over Torque Wrench by Mountz, Inc.

Delivers Precision Torque and Prevents a Fastener from Being Over-Torqued

San Jose, Calif., - Mountz, Inc. introduces the new ATB torque wrench, the first adjustable break-over wrench. Designed for variety of industries like aerospace, automotive, electronics, energy, medical, and packaging, the ATB torque wrench ensures proper torque control. The adjustable torque wrench breaks over upon reaching the preset torque value and resets automatically. Compact and well balanced the ATB wrench is ideal for use in space-restricted areas.

The break-over torque wrench reduces the chance of over tightening fasteners and bolts. Once the break-over wrench achieves torque, the head breaks-over signaling to the operator to stop applying torque to the fastener or bolt. At the set torque, the handle of the ATB wrench moves through an angle of 20º before resetting. The use of a break-over torque wrench offers more accurate and repeatable results than a standard 'click' type wrench. A click wrench typically breaks about 3 degrees after set torque is reached and then becomes positive. If the operator continues to pull on the click wrench, he or she can over tighten the fastener.

Crafted with a soft texture grip, the ATB torque wrench features a locking system that securely prevents incidental adjustment of the torque setting by the operator while operating the tool. The wrench has the ability to change head configurations like an open end, box, flare or a ratchet head. Designed and manufactured to meet or exceed the accuracy and repeatability requirements of ISO6789: 2003, Mountz offers various ATB wrench models covering a torque range from 4 foot-pounds up to 18 foot-pounds.

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 torqued can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners. Using a quality torque wrench has become increasingly important for many companies to ensure that proper torque is being applied and maintains gauge requirements associated with the ISO 9001 Quality Standard.
