HeliCoil Electric & Pneumatic Power Tools
Pneumatic Power Tool
This tool speeds up installation speed & assembly, eliminates waste, and permits an accurate count of HeliCoil inserts. It allows for rapid installation of both HeliCoil standard free running and screw-lock inserts.
The HeliCoil Pneumatic Power Tool can be adapted to assembly stations, rotary tables, and transfer lines. It can be hand held, vertically or horizontally mounted, and adapted to both semi-automatic and fully automatic installation stations.
It comprises of:
- Reversible air motor
- Front end assembly (prewinder, mandrel, and spacer sets)
HeliCoil Pneumatic Power Tools are available in UNC and UNF sizes from 2-56 to 1/2" and in metric sizes up to 12mm.
Pneumatic Power Tool Holder
For perfect angle alignment and support of the HeliCoil Pneumatic Power Tool, the HeliCoil Power Tool Holder is highly recommended. It can be used with or without HeliCoil strip feed inserts and is recommended for use with sizes UNC 2-56 & M2.2 & M2.5 as the small sizes of these inserts make manual handling difficult.
The holder is mounted onto a bench and the appropriate air motor is attached to a spring loaded air tube at the end of a movable arm. A mounting arm is also provided for attaching reels of HeliCoil strip feed inserts. This configuration ensures accurate vertical (square to work surface) installation of HeliCoil inserts in relatively large parts.
The HeliCoil Pneumatic Power Tool Holder is capable of installing HeliCoil screw thread inserts within a radius of 23.5 inches and on planes differing by 3.5 inches.
Strip Feed Inserts
For high volume production, HeliCoil inserts can be supplied in reels of plastic tape known as Strip Feed Inserts. When used with the HeliCoil Pneumatic Power Tool, HeliCoil Strip Feed Inserts speed up assembly, eliminates cumbersome manual handling of each insert, eliminates incidents of dropped inserts, and facilitates counting of inserts. However, Strip Feed Inserts can also be installed using HeliCoil Hand Installation Tools.
The HeliCoil inserts are held securely in the reels of plastic tape and the insert is positioned properly for installation each and every time. Hence there is no time wasted on manual positioning of the inserts.
Electric Power Tool
Where electric power is preferred over air, Emhart Technologies offers the HeliCoil Electric Power Tool. This tool meets the requirements of clean room operations and operators also prefer electric power because it is quieter. It is light and the slender configuration of the mandrels allows users to reach into constricted areas.
Cordless Electric Power Tool
The HeliCoil Cordless Electric Power Tool is a complete installation kit that includes a driver, 2 batteries, 15 minute charger, and HeliCoil mandrels all in a durable metal box.
It is portable, lightweight, has adjustable torque, and uses standard HeliCoil Electric Power Tool installation mandrels for quick setup.
