A new heavy duty torque arm from ASG, featuring a pneumatic cylinder to assist movement of heavier tools, is designed to improve production efficiencies and product quality by limiting the operator’s influence on the assembly process and reducing operator fatigue.

Additionally, the new torque arms securely maintain tool location while allowing easy, smooth movement of assembly tools in both up-down motion and 180 side-to- side motion. The arm’s ergonomic design helps absorb torque to reduce the potential for operator injury to arm, wrist or hand.

The torque arm can accommodate inline pneumatic or inline electric drivers with maximum weights of 10 lbs. It mounts easily to bench tops via bolts or optional bench clamp, which eliminates hole drilling. The end-of-arm tool holder allows the operator a full grip of the driver with no pinch points. A dial regulator provides easy adjustment of resistance for perfect balance.
