Impact wrench prevents overtension during assembly

Impact wrench prevents overtension during assembly

Here's the MP-6100TA torque controlled impact wrench with the 3Auto-Stop2 feature to tighten bolts to a preadjusted tension.

Designed as a replacement for the CP-0610TELUD, the 1 in. square drive MP-6100TA provides easy torque adjustment and uniform torque output in a range of 300-1,400 ft-lb.

Properly used with a Skidmore torque meter to maintain consistent torque, the key feature of the MP-6100TA impact is the Time Lag Valve, an internal mechanism that allows the operator to tighten bolts to a preset torque.

When the desired torque is achieved, the tool stops automatically, preventing overtension. Other features include a through hole anvil and an optional No. 5 spline drive.
