Mountz, a designer and manufacturer of torque control products, has introduced the TALS wireless torque wrench system.

The torque wrench system frees assembly workers from restrictive cables and offers a multiple-channel and tool tracking capability in a single unit.

The TALS system is suitable for monitoring the production line and aides manufacturers with detecting and eliminating costly screw-fastening errors during the assembly process.

The quality control system ensures that all fasteners are accounted for during the assembly process and verifies that all fasteners have been installed and were seated to the tool’s preset torque setting.

These units take the control of the assembly process out of the operator’s hands, according to the company.

Compatible with most production line control systems, the TALS wireless torque wrench system is a cost-effective way of monitoring torque applications during the production process.

The second-generation wireless fastener system operates on an FM frequency.

The TALS wrench is equipped with a small battery-powered transceiver at the end of its handle in place of a cord attachment.

When a preset torque is reached, the wireless torque wrench sends an FM signal to the TALS Core monitoring device, which records the fastener as fastened.

The TALS solution facilitates data sharing.

After the readings have been recorded, users can download the readings and wrench data for SPC analysis and for creating quality control documents.

Without the hazards of cables, the TALS wireless wrench system provides a safe operating environment and reduces potential work-related injuries as operators do not need to worry about tripping on cords.

Manufacturers can use the TALS for the online monitoring of critical fasteners in their production line to ensure that the line will only move when the required amount of fastening operations has been confirmed.

Lapses in preventing fastening errors can affect the bottom line.

The later an error is detected on the assembly line, the more it costs in rework time and expenses.

If a fastening error is committed and detected during the assembly process, the operator can fix it by properly completing the process or prevent the faulty product from being moved down the line.

The flexible wireless torque wrench system is available in cam-over or break-over torque wrench models.

Mountz claims that controlling torque is vital for companies to ensure that the quality, safety and reliability of products are not compromised.

The failure of a three-cent fastener that is not properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures, according to the company.

Fasteners that are insufficiently fastened can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners.
