Remote Control

Simply setup the Quick Set features using a remote control. Once set, the operator is unable to change the settings without the remote, preventing improper program changes to the tool.

Clutch Adjustment Tool

A keyed clutch adjustment tool is used to change the torque settings. The operator is unable to change the torque without the keyed adjustment tool; this assures correct torque is applied to the fastener.

OK/NOK Light for Operator Visual

Adjustable Speed Control

Adjust the speed to exactly match the application

Auto Downshift

After a programmable period of time, the rpm automatically down-shifts to 300 rpm maximizing the operators productivity.

Cross Thread Prevention

Reversing the fastener 360 degrees helps align the threads to significantly reduce the possibility of cross threading a fastener.

Cross Thread Detection

If the clutch is activated before the programmable minimum runtime, the tool stops the fastening process and signals a NOK Fastening.
