A pulse tool has the speed of an impact wrench with nearly the repeatability of a clutch based shut-off tool. Containing precision-machined parts the pulse unit is a sealed chamber that is filled with a formulated hydraulic fluid. Pulse blades with a custom designed precision roller push the fluid inside the rotating chamber generating hydraulic pressure that produces torque. Air power is the power source that spins the anvil and resistance against the fastener causes the pulse unit to activate.
Pulse tools are designed for safe, reaction free operation for various industrial assembly applications. Durability, power, speed, low noise decibels, minimal vibration and low torque reaction are key reasons for selecting a safe ergonomic pulse tool. For fastening applications a pulse tool will increase productivity, provide excellent ergonomics, reliability and quality.
Rugged Pulse tools increase productivity and enhance product quality through precision torque control and user comfort. A lightweight pulse tool with more torque capability is an ideal tool for an operator. A pulse tool with a good power-to-weight ratio will enhance the cycle time for the operator with a high-speed rundown. The Flex Power Pulse tools, by Mountz Inc., feature a double chamber motor that allows the tool to quickly reach the required torque and increase productivity. The roller inside the pulse unit reduces friction, which increases power and allows the “pulse fluid” to last longer.
The Flex Power pulse tool features a unique “block valve” design to control the flow of oil and keep it on the designated path. The block valve improves the shut-off timing of the tool for better repeatability and reduced wear on the springs.
Other pulse tools have a shut-off mechanism that operates by the movement of steel ball and spring. For these pulse tools, the pressure inside the pulse unit could cause the spring to wear down quickly, which would impact the accuracy of the torque output and increase maintenance costs as well as downtime.
