5 things to know when considering pulse Tools for an application
Choosing the right tool for an application is important for the productivity and quality of an assembly operation. Pulse tools have some very attractive characteristics such as high run down speed, power-to-weight ratio as well as no reaction force but they are not always the best choice. Below are some considerations to keep in mind when considering pulse tools for an application.
Learn how to get the best environment to operate your high precision tools in.
A pneumatic Pulse Tool is a common choice for quality critical applications. In order for the tool to be able to deliver maximum performance, it is key that it operates in a stable environment.
A stable air pressure is more important than a high pressure.
The general recommendation is to supply 6.3 bar of dynamic pressure to the tool. Dynamic pressure is a measurement taken at the tool’s inlet when it is running with no load.
An hydraulic impulse tool, or “pulse tool” for short, is a good option for many common assembly operations in the industry. Lower noise levels, better accuracy and torque adjustment are key benefits versus impact wrenches, and the possibility of one-handed operations even at higher torque is a key benefit compared to direct-drive nutrunners.
