For life-threatening high voltage and low voltage electrical assembly applications where over-torque conditions are not tolerated and operator safety is mandatory, Mountz Inc. offers Insulated torque wrenches. Designed with non-conductive plastic insulation, the torque wrenches provide operators with the proper safety for fastening applications. The Insulated torque wrenches ensure proper torque control and eliminate the possibility of product failure due to shorting, arcing or other electrical damage.
Mountz features two styles of Insulated Torque wrenches. The 1000V Insulated torque wrenches are built to protect against voltages up to 1,000 volts making these torque tools ideal for use in electrically live situations for a wide range of industries. The 50V Insulated torque wrenches are crafted for low voltage applications. Designed for use in uninterrupted power supply and other battery applications where protection up to 50 volts is required.
The 1000V Insulated torque wrenches are available in cam-over wrench models as well as break-over wrench models. The design action of the cam-over torque wrench is such that when the tool reaches its pre-set torque value the mechanism disengages from the drive thus limiting the torque applied. The break-over torque wrench reduces the chance of overtightening. Once the break-over wrench achieves torque, the head breaks-over signaling to the operator to stop applying torque to the fastener or bolt.
The 50V Insulated torque wrenches are available in break-over wrench models and click wrench models. Engineers can improve quality issues related to battery or other electrical fastening applications and ensure operator safety with the insulated torque tools. The wrenches reduce the possibility of shorting or shock for fastening applications.
Designed and manufactured to meet or exceed the accuracy and repeatability requirements of ISO6789: 2003, Mountz offers various Insulated torque wrench models that range from 1.8 inch-pounds up to 90 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.
