The torque settings on a drill will stop the drill from driving the screw ( or what ever you are tightening ) when it reaches a specific "tightness" . For example; the setting "1" will only tighten a screw a very little bit, while " 14 " will tightten the heck out of it.

Note: once the screw has reached it's specific torque ( or tightness ) the drill motor will continue to turn but it will disengage the driver, making a kind of grinding sound,it's perfectly normal so don't be alarmed.

How to reset Active Torque Control in the handle of Hilti model TE76P-ATC Rotary Hammer Drill


Active Torque Control (only TE 76-ATC / TE 76P-ATC)
The TE76-ATC / TE 76P-ATC is equipped with the Active
Torque Control system in addition to the mechanical
torque limiting clutch. This system offers additional protection
while drilling by rapid shutdown upon uncontrolled
rotation in the axis of the drill bit, e. g. when the
drill bit jams due to hitting rebar or when the insert tool
is tilted unintentionally.
When the ATC system has become activated, the tool
can be restarted by releasing the control switch and reengaging
it after the the motor has stopped rotating
("click"-sound signals readiness for use).
Always choose a working position in which the electric
tool is free to rotate in a counter-clockwise direction
(as seen by the operator). If this is not possible, the ATC
system cannot react.

I have a 6337D which has 16 position torque settings. I do not have any torque measurement device. This said, what does each setting represent in terms of a torque value? Thanks for your help.


Good luck finding any actual documentation on this one. The only thing I could think of would be to put a rag in a vise and clamp the drill in the vise after chucking up a bolt. Set the wrench for your desired torque and adjust the clutch on the drill until the wrench indicates the clutch torque value is what you desire...just a thought.
Take care.

Amount of torque per setting in dewalt dc925 xrp


The torque settings are not tightly controlled so they are not all that repeatable from drill to drill. They also vary somewhat with the speed of the drill and the condition of the battery. And they aren't linear (a setting of 10 is not twice the 5 setting) Simplest thing to do for a rough idea is to use your hand to hold the chuck still to feel how much torque you have at each setting. (start low and grip it tight!) If you want a specific torque setting, say 10 ft-lbs, then put a stout screw in a scrap of wood, hang a 10 lb weight on it 12 inches from the screw and adjust until it just starts to slip.

How is a driver different from a drill? What


Hello, W/D here.

A very good question......A drill holds a bit and rotates it at a given speed. This speed can be variable, allowing the speed of the drill bit to be better matched to the material being drilled. The output from the drill motor goes directly to the chuck, and the power is directly applied to the drill bit. Some drills can generate a tremendous amount of direct torque, due to the nature of their gearing. Most of the better drills have planetary gears in them.
A driver rotates like a drill, but is designed to apply torque to a driving bit, and cause a fastener to be placed by the driver. The main difference between a drill and a driver is that a driver has an adjustable clutch, allowing the amount of torque being applied to a fitting to be preset. A good example of this would be for driving wood screws. You would dial in the torque setting that you want the driver to quit driving the screw. You don't want to drive the screw to China, you want to drive it flush. A maximum torque setting "locks" the clutch, and the fitting will be driven as far as it can go (This is about as close to being called a drill as a driver will ever get). A clutch setting midway might be just right for driving the same fitting into oak, and a setting at less than that might be just right for pine. The torque clutch effectively sets a kick out torque for the driver. When the torque applied matches the torque set on the driver, the clutch "slips", and no further driving action can occur.
Most modern battery powered drills incorporate a torque clutch between the motor and the chuck so that the tool can be operated as a drill (with the torque setting at "max") or as a driver (with the torque setting at less than max) some electric tools are configured as both, but usually they are different. For the money, a good battery powered drill/driver with a clutch offers more versatility, in my opinion.
Best regards, --W/D--

My Craftsman 19.2 drill's adjustable torque clutch want allow drilling in forward gear.


Try with the drill chuck torque setting set to max. If no joy on that one, work tha low/high speed switch several times. If no luck there, you may need to open the drill and check for a loose linkage, or that something has slipped out of place. It's not difficult.

Drill Turque


Torque, which is measured in foot-pounds, is the drill's maximum amount of turning force. Some drills have an adjustable clutch with different torque settings for different applications.
