 Count On Tools Inc., a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, announces that PB Swiss Tools, a leading partner for quality tools world-wide, has released the newest generation of PB Torque Tools with VDE design for work on electrical devices. These convenient tools make it easy to check screw tightening torques and lie comfortably in the hand due to their ergonomic shape and high-quality handle materials.

Excessive torque can cause damage while insufficient torque can pose a safety risk. In electrical work, it is extremely important to be able to control the tightening torque for screws. As a result, the Torque tools with VDE design have been added to the ElectroTool series, guaranteeing safe and controlled tightening of the screws for all electrical work up to 1000 volt AC/1500 volt DC. The blades are secured in the handle and are not removable like other Torque tool models. This allows them to be coated for safe work on electrical devices.

The PB Swiss Tools Torque VDE series is available in Phillips (#1 & #2), Pozidriv (#1 & #2), Phillips/Slotted (#2), and Pozidriv/Slotted (#2) sizes with preset of 1.40 Nm (1.03 ft. lbs.) for smaller sized tools and 4.5 Nm (3.32 ft. lbs.) for larger sized tools. Preset torque range can be adjusted as required with recalibration using a testing device. All PB Torque tools are certified ±6 percent.

With more than 130 years of experience, PB Swiss Tools is a global leader of hand tools manufactured for use in the industrial marketplace, even for the most hazardous jobs. All PB Swiss Tools are 100 percent Swiss-made and come with an unlimited lifetime guarantee. Work with the best.
