Press Release Summary:
Weighing 12 oz, Torq2(TM) TL-6500 and TL-3000 are torque-controlled, dc screwdrivers feature clutches that automatically stop when pre-set torque is reached to eliminate over- and under-tightening. Tools can be operated at high or low speed settings when connected to ASG's PS-55 power supply, and ESD-safe models of each tool are available for static-sensitive applications. Torque can be set between 1.5 and 17 lb-in. for TL-6500 or .25 and 4.0 lb-in. for TL-3000.
Original Press Release:
New Precision Electric Screwdrivers Announced
CLEVELAND, OH- March 26, 2007- Two new torque-controlled low voltage DC screwdrivers have been announced by ASG, a division of Jergens, Inc. The new Torq2(TM) TL-6500 and TL-3000 drivers are for precision assembly work, their clutches automatically stopping when a pre-set torque is reached, eliminating over-and under-tightening. The drivers have a value-engineered design that delivers outstanding performance at a moderate cost.
The drivers are exceptionally lightweight, about 12 oz. versus comparable tools that are up to twice the weight, helping to reduce operator fatigue. Torques are easily adjustable by tightening or loosening the torque-adjusting nut. Torques can be set between 1.5 lbfoin and 17 lbfoin for the TL-6500 and between .25 lbfoin and 4.0 lbfoin for the TL-3000. The tools can be operated at either the High or Low speed settings when connected to ASG's recently-introduced PS-55 power supply. The TL-6500 will operate at 700 or 500 RPM; the TL-3000 at 1000 or 700 RPM.
An ESD-safe model of each of the tools is available for static-sensitive applications.
ASG provides a full line of equipment and systems for precision assembly work, including electric torque-controlled drivers, bits, torque testing equipment and assembly production aides.
ASG is located at 15700 South Waterloo Road, Cleveland, OH 44110-3898.
