Torq2 Drivers Available in Right Angle Configurations

A series of 22 air screwdrivers for assembly has been released by the ASG division of Jergens. The Torq2 lever start drivers are available in either inline or right angle configurations. A clutch design automatically stops the tools when designated torques are reached.

Users can adjust torques through a torque nut, and antitamper covers are included. Most drivers come with a series of five color-coded caps that can be used as a visual reference of a driver’s torque. The drivers come standard to accept 0.25” hex bits.
