Tips for Setting up an Air Line for Pneumatic Assembly Tools
For pneumatic assembly tools to operate properly and efficiently, it's key to provide a clean, dry flow of air to the tool. Air tools are adversely affected by moisture. Since air from a compressor contains much moisture and dust, it is desirable to provide a filter and lubricator in the pipeline to remove such undesirable elements.
Determine Size for Application
- Total Air Flow (cfm) required for application
- Size of incoming air line
- Size of air line required for tool
- Air supply pressure (PSI)
- Allowable pressure drop
- Does the application require lubrication?
Never use higher air pressure to increase the output of the air tool. Overloading will drastically shorten the life of all internal parts and can lead operator being injured.
Air Hose Selection for Pneumatic Tool
- Use recommended ID air hose and fittings
- Replace air hose regularly to help maintain clean air
- Clear hose allows you to see water or dirt accumulation in the hose
- Use proper hose length to reduce air loss and pressure drop
- Use quick disconnect couplers for additional safety
Pneumatic Torque Screwdrivers
Built for high production environments, the FlexPower pneumatic torque screwdrivers by Mountz, Inc. provide durability, power and speed for assembly and manufacturing applications at an affordable price. Designed for safe operation and increase comfort for operators, the air screwdrivers provide lower noise decibels than comparative pneumatic screwdrivers as well as minimal vibration and low torque reaction on the operator.
The Mountz rugged pneumatic screwdrivers increase productivity and enhance product quality through precision torque control and user comfort. Featuring a patented clutch design assembly air tools deliver reliable accuracy with repeatable torque control. The clutch mechanism shuts off the air supply when the preset torque setting is achieved, preventing over-torque conditions from occurring.
Using a quality air screwdriver is important for many companies to ensure that proper torque is being applied and maintained for their quality requirements.
Featuring a complete line of shut off and non-shut off pulse tools, the FlexPower pulse tools by Mountz Inc. speed up production without torque reaction. Low noise decibels, minimal vibration and low torque reaction make these tools a safe ergonomic selection. FlexPower pulse tools provide durability, power and speed for industrial assembly applications ranging from 4.4 - 154.9 lbf.ft covering bolt sizes M5-M16.
