Two new torque-controlled low voltage DC screwdrivers have been announced by ASG, a division of Jergens, Inc. The new trademarked Torq TL-6500 and TL-3000 drivers are for precision assembly work. Their clutches automatically stop when a pre-set torque is reached, eliminating over- and under-tightening. The drivers have what the company calls a “value-engineered” design that delivers outstanding performance at a moderate cost. The drivers are exceptionally lightweight, about 12 oz/ 0.34 kg vs. comparable tools that are up to twice the weight, helping to reduce operator fatigue. Torques are easily adjustable by tightening or loosening the torque-adjusting nut. Torques can be set between 1.5 lbf/in and 17 lbf/in for the TL-6500 and between 0.25 lbf/in and 4.0 lbf/in for the TL-3000. The tools can be operated at either the high or low speed settings when connected to ASG’s PS-55 power supply.
