Threaded insert power tools

A new range of POP Nut threaded insert pc power tools has been launched by Emhart Teknologies.

The company's product specialist Darren Hull explains that these tools have been designed "with a unique pressure control feature which automatically adjusts the stroke needed to install the inserts in applications of varying thicknesses. This therefore requires only an initial set-up for the tool to set the product in various thicknesses within a grip range."

The new tools also feature a 'Push-to-start' thread on mandrels, single-torque operation, and quick-release mandrel systems. "With an installation cycle time of two seconds the tools reduce installation costs and improve productivity."

Two tools have been introduced: the PNT800L-PC which can install open and closed inserts in aluminium (M6 to M8) and steel and stainless steel (M4 to M8), and the PNT1000L-PC which can install open and closed inserts in aluminium, steel, and stainless steel (M6 to M12).
