New air tools on show at FAST

The Atlas Copco LMS 8, now available from Total Air Tools and on display at this week's FAST Exhibition, delivers true raw power which enables extremely fast tightening and loosening in even the most difficult applications.

An innovative grease retaining system (GRS) ensures maximum tool performance combined with extremely long service intervals. The company tells us that the LMS 8 has extraordinarily low vibration levels for an impact wrench and a very high power to weight ratio which can provide as much as 5.500 Nm of torque from a tool weighing only 15Kg.

Another new product to the company's tools portfolio is an angle drive with a difference. The Delta angle tool (pictured) incorporates a redesigned angle head that fits easily to the ESL M straight tool, which is already produced with an aluminium front body that facilitates fixture mounting so it lends itself naturally to the angle head. There is no loss of power or accuracy so the angle range can produce up to 15Nm with speeds ranging from 350 to 1000 RPM.
