Manage up to 16 tools with one controller

Cleco, an Apex Tool Group brand, has introduced an improved and complemented series of the LiveWire cordless fastening system for safety-ontrolcritical fastening.

The new LiveWire generation is said to combine the freedom and flexibility of cordless tools with real-time wireless transmission and up to 1,700 rundowns per battery charge, meeting highest security standards.

Designed to maximise efficiency and productivity, the LiveWire system can use up to 16 tools with a single controller, allowing each tool to communicate directly with the plant network. The user-friendly LCD interface with configurable buttons and status indicators enables the communication of real-time tool information. The intelligent global controller Cleco mPro400GC ensures high torque precision, as well as a precise process control and documentation for every fastening cycle.

“In designing the LiveWire system, we wanted to create a product that was durable enough for the industrial environment, but also one that would provide reliable communication virtually anywhere on the plant floor,” said Adrian Hetzel, global product manager electric tools, Apex Tool Group. “By combining cordless functionality and wireless capabilities, the LiveWire gives our customers the mobility to use the product in a variety of industrial applications."

LiveWire tools are said to offer precision torque, angle, and speed control with up to 1,700 rundowns per battery charge. "With the latest generation LiveWire tools, preventive maintenance is extended to 500,000 cycles, which is twice that of the previous design. To accommodate diverse applications, the LiveWire is available in right angle, pistol grip, crowfoot, and tubenut configurations."

A LiveWire 2 right-angle model is also available, offering the same performance as the LiveWire, in a compact, lighter design.

All LiveWire fastening tools feature a modular accessory platform, allowing customisation of the tool (without disassembling it) by adding a barcode scanner, gyroscope or tool location module for the mistake-proofing of processes.
