Mountz Intros Adjustable Break-Over Torque Wrench
Adjustable break-over torque wrench.
San Jose, CA — Mountz, Inc. has introduced its ATB torque wrench, described as the first adjustable break-over wrench. The torque wrench breaks over upon reaching the preset torque value and resets automatically, ensuring proper torque control. It is well balanced and suitable for use in space-restricted areas.

The wrench reduces the chance of over-tightening fasteners and bolts. Once the wrench achieves set torque, the head breaks-over, signaling to the operator to stop applying torque to the fastener or bolt.

At set torque, the handle of the ATB wrench moves through an angle of 20° before resetting.

Use of the new torque wrench offers more accurate and repeatable results than a standard "click" type wrench. A click wrench typically breaks about 3 degrees after set torque is reached and then becomes positive. If the operator continues to pull on the click wrench, he or she can over tighten the fastener.

Crafted with a soft texture grip, the ATB torque wrench incorporates a locking system that securely prevents incidental adjustment of the torque setting by the operator while operating the tool. The wrench has the ability to change head configurations like an open end, box, flare or a ratchet head. The ATB is designed and manufactured to meet or exceed the accuracy and repeatability requirements of ISO6789: 2003.
