Mar 07, 2014

 MecaTorque VDE

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 worldwide, has released the newest generation of PB Torque Tools with MecaTorque VDE design for work on electrical devices. These convenient tools make it easy to check screw tightening torques and fit comfortably in the hand, thanks 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 MecaTorque VDE design have been added to the ElectroTool series, guaranteeing safe and controlled tightening of the screws for all electrical work up to 1000 V AC/1500 V 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 MecaTorque VDE series is available in Phillips (#1 and #2), Pozidriv (#1 and #2), Phillips/Slotted (#2) and Pozidriv/Slotted (#2) sizes. The fixed connection of matching blade and handle guarantees a high degree of safety at work. The MecaTorque VDE torque range can be adjusted as required with easy recalibration using a standard testing device.

All of the torque handles are supplied with test certificate ±6 percent according to EN ISO 6789. PB Swiss Tools offers a warranty of three years against manufacturing
