Torque Arms Improve Production During Assembly

The new EZ-Slider torque arms from Mountz are designed to improve production and quality control during the assembly process. The ergonomic design of the torque arm is intended to reduce repetitive motion injury and carpal tunnel syndrome. The handling of the torque arm provides comfortable tool operation and increased production. The Mountz torque arm eliminates the torque reaction of power and pneumatic tools.

Crafted with a lightweight durable carbon fibre, the EZ-Slider torque arm slides up and down and provides X- and Y-axis mobility. A gliding rail system from Mountz gives the EZ-Slider torque arm the freedom to travel horizontally (side to side) on a production floor. Combining these two items give manufactures the ability to set up a slide-and-glide movement with the EZ-Slider. The torque arm is suitable for multi-tool applications such as a moving production and assembly line where balancers are fixed to a trolley system.

The EZ-Slider torque arm eliminates the torque reaction of assembly tools and strengthens quality control during the assembly process. It can be used with a variety of assembly tools, such as angle-nut runners and electric and pneumatic screwdrivers. The flexible EZ-Slider torque arm gives manufacturers the ability to mount the arms to a wall, a workbench, a standard rail system, an aluminium extrusion or an existing overhead system. The torque arms are maintenance free, according to the company.
