Mountz Intros EZ-Slider Torque Arms
San Jose, CA — New EZ-Slider torque arms by Mountz Inc. are designed to improve production and quality control during the assembly process. The ergonomic design of the EZ-Slider torque arm reduces RMI (repetitive motion injury) and CTS (carpal tunnel syndrome). The effortless handling of the torque arm provides comfortable tool operation and increased production. The torque arm eliminates torque reaction of power and pneumatic tools.

Crafted with a lightweight durable carbon fiber, the EZ-Slider torque arm slides up and down and provides X and Y axis mobility. A Gliding Rail System, an accessory product, allows the torque arm the freedom to travel horizontally (side to side) on a production floor. Combining these two items allow manufacturers the ability to set-up a "Slide and Glide" movement. The torque arm is an excellent ergonomic solution for multi-tool applications such as a moving production and assembly line where balancers are fixed to a trolley system.

When planning a production area, it is important for manufacturers to plan the ergonomics of the operation and consult a health and safety inspector or ergonomic manager. Ensuring both the workplace and the assembly operation are compatible with the majority of operators that handle the assembly tools, reduces future costs arising from work-related health disorders among operators, along with costs arising from poor product quality.
