Pulse Tools Deliver Precision Torque Control & Repeatable Clamp Force
A pulse tool has the speed of an impact wrench with nearly the repeatability of a clutch based shut-off torque 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 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 fluid inside the pulse tool acts as a shock absorber providing a powerful reactionless and vibration-free nutrunner that is low in noise and highly ergonomic. A pulse tool is crafted for a quick rundown time, which reduces operator exposure. Mountz FlexPower pulse tools are ergonomically safer than harmful hammering and vibration of impact wrenches.
Due to the design of a pulse tool, there is no mechanical clutch or the conventional metal-to-metal hammering mechanism like an impact wrench that causes a short tool life and higher maintenance costs. Pulse tools are designed for durability and a long tool life.
Pulse tools deliver precision torque control and repeatable clamp force on properly designed joints. It is important to understand your joint application before selecting a pulse tool.
