New Pneumatically-Assisted Torque Arm for Assembly Announced
Absorbs Torque; Reduces Potential Operator Injury
CLEVELAND, OH-July 18, 2007 - A new heavy duty torque arm has been announced by ASG, a division of Jergens, Inc. The new torque arm features a pneumatic cylinder to assist movement of heavier tools. Torque arms improve production efficiencies and product quality by limiting the operator's influence on the assembly process and reducing operator fatigue. Additionally, the new torque arms securely maintain tool location while allowing easy, smooth movement of assembly tools in both up-down motion and 180º side-to-side motion. The arms also help absorb torque to reduce the potential for operator injury to arm, wrist or hand.
The torque arm can accommodate both inline pneumatic and inline electric drivers with maximum weights of 15 lbs. and maximum torques of up to 110 lbfoin. It mounts easily to bench tops via bolts or optional bench clamp which eliminates hole drilling. The end-of-arm tool holder allows the operator a full grip of the driver with no pinch points. A dial regulator provides easy adjustment of resistance for perfect balance.
