Mountz Introduces 2nd Generation TorqueMate® Digital Torque Wrench
Mountz introduces the next generation of the TorqueMate® Digital Torque Wrench. The TorqueMate is a microprocessor controlled digital torque wrench. Featuring a new large LED screen, 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.
Crafted with a soft texture grip, the TorqueMate wrench is an ergonomically safe tool for the operator to use. The wrench is designed for the global manufacturing market as it provides the ability to select the following languages: Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
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.
