Panasonic Eco Solutions of North America, a leader in cordless assembly technology, introduces its latest innovation in mechanical pulse tool technology, AccuPulse®.
Mechanical pulse tools were designed with the operator in mind with no torque reaction and advanced ergonomics to reduce operator fatigue & injury. Mechanical Pulse tools require minimal maintenance but get the job done accurately. A cordless battery-powered design offers freedom of movement and long-life emissions-free operation, desirable in today’s eco-conscious factories.
“The world’s leading manufacturers are making major advances in production processes, which require innovative assembly tools that function intelligently, continuously and comfortably,” said John Olson, Panasonic Assembly Tools Group Manager. “AccuPulse cordless tools are the next stage in a long tradition of keeping our customer’s needs at the core of our innovation.”
Panasonic’s AccuPulse® mechanical pulse tool series with high-resolution encoder to accurately detect flush and snug points on a wide variety of joint types, important for fastening applications where precision is critical. By sensing eight times faster compared to standard mechanical pulse tools, engineers can fine tune these tools to any application for greater fastening accuracy and higher operational efficiency for quality-driven manufacturers.
Programmable functionality helps deliver accuracy, automation, quality assurance and efficiency across workstations and throughout the plant. Easily program settings such as socket extension mode, cross thread reduction, cross thread/rehit detection, retightening prevention, maintenance alarms, and flush detection delay.
AccuPulse® delivers consistent pulse control to ensure the power of each pulse stays constant regardless of remaining battery capacity. The tool shuts down automatically before battery power becomes too low, resulting in greater fastening precision.
Featuring torque controlled ranges from 3Nm to 120Nm and a high-efficiency double hammer design, AccuPulse® tools are available in a variety of drive systems to deliver versatility in manufacturing applications from automobiles, heavy equipment, off-road vehicles, general industry and agriculture/construction equipment.
AccuPulse® tools use the same Panasonic lithium-ion battery technology that powers the world’s most advanced electric cars, and are available in 10.8V and 14.4V ultra long-life Li-ion battery options. Panasonic’s advanced GuardION™ power system enables tool, battery and charger to work together to prevent overcharging/discharging resulting in longer battery life.
