Digital Torque Wrench helps minimize fastening defects.

Press Release Summary:

Designed to monitor fastening and assembly process, microprocessor-controlled TorqueMate® Electronic Torque Wrench provides full data collection and storage for more than 2,000 measured values detailing date, time, torque, and angle. Unit includes over-torque warning system, as well as audible and visual alarms as operator approaches preset torque values. Providing up to 99 programmable pre-sets, wrench is suitable for torque calibration, joint testing, auditing, or verification of torque applied.

Original Press Release:

New TorqueMate® Electronic Torque Wrench by Mountz Inc.

The TorqueMate® Electronic Torque Wrench is a new digital torque wrench from Mountz Inc. The TorqueMate is a microprocessor controlled electronic torque wrench. The electronic wrench enhances process reliability through complete monitoring of the fastening and assembly process with full data collection of the measured values. The efficiency and manufacturing cost-savings that the TorqueMate provides, will ultimately translate into more products shipped quickly, with fewer defects.

The TorqueMate digital wrench can be used for torque calibration, joint testing, auditing or verification of torque applied. Designed for R&D, Quality Control, a lab, and maintenance or production areas the TorqueMate electronic wrench is ideal for testing and storing test data for ISO, SPC and QC documentation.

The user-friendly interface makes it quick and simple to setup torque testing and auditing parameters with the electronic wrench. The TorqueMate wrench features a memory capacity that stores more than 2000 values; detailing date, time, torque & angle and measurement values. The statistical data can be easily downloaded from wrench allowing operators to evaluate the torque results in ASCII or binary format and store test data.

The versatile TorqueMate wrench features programmable pre-sets (max. 99) that can be uploaded from PC (software provided), all with individual minimum and maximum limits and percentage tolerances. The wrench provides audible and visual alarm signals for the operator as he/she approaches and achieves preset torque values. And it also provides an over torque warning system.

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 electronic 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.
