Chicago Pneumatic Tool Co. Says its BlueTork CP7600 nutrunner series is the only non-impact tool with a shut-off nutrunner available on the market for fleet maintenance applications.
The company says the BlueTork nutrunner provides high user-comfort when handled, and can reduce maintenance issues. Since the tool uses continuous driving force, instead of impact force, it is quiet at 79 dBA, with vibration of less than 2.5 m/s.
"The BlueTork nutrunner is a unique piece of equipment for organizations who are looking to improve their fleet maintenance in terms of quality, ergonomics and reliability,” says Christophe Roland, product marketing manager at Chicago Pneumatic Tools.
”In addition to providing operator comfort, the BlueTork nutrunner performs an important function in the wheel tightening process. This is particularly important for vehicles with frequent start-stop journeys, such as those taken by city buses or refuse trucks."
The BlueTork nutrunner enables operators easily to re-set torque for each use, providing accurate, precise tightening to the original equipment manufacturer's guidelines, according to the company. The shut off valve controls the tightening process, while the torque reaction is taken by a reaction bar. The tool uses a dual motor setup which provides initial run-down at 100rpm (50 ft.lbs) to quickly snug the nut, while the second motor rotates at 8 rpm to deliver the final specified torque.
The BlueTork nutrunner is available in four versions (of seven models) for maximum user choice:
* the CP7600 with one torque setting in forward only;
* the CP7600R with one torque setting with forward and reverse;
* the CP7600-4P which features four torque settings in forward only; and
* the CP7600R-4P, featuring four torque settings with forward and reverse.
Some versions can also be specified with an extended gearbox to reach deeper bolts. In addition to easy handling, the CP7600 series features a simple swing bar reaction mechanism for easy alignment and quick operation, according to the company.
