1. "†" What does this symbol mean in the catalog under part number?
This symbol means that tool is not normally in stock and you will need to contact the factory for best possible delivery date.
2. Which tool is best for my application? Power or Manual?
The determination of whether to use power or manual is usually based on the amount of time and volume. If you are only installing a few hours a day but within that time doing 40 screws per product, a power tool would be the choice where as if you are only doing 4 screws per product in the same time period a manual tool would work fine. The only other factor would be torque value, which could be too great for the operator to turn manually.
3. What is the right torque value for my operation?
The manufacturing engineer should be able to determine the value mathematically and then verify by testing the torque value. If you do not have the advantage of an engineer then using a Model 4730 or 4740 to determine the torque value for your application is the next best alternative.
4. What RPM is the right speed for my application?
This is a judgement call based on your assembly process. If you are doing basic finishing work then the tendency is for fast run down rpms where as if you are doing sub-assembly work, which requires focused attention a lower rpm is best suited for this application.
5. How much cfm will I require to run the power tool?
The cubic feet per minute required for our power tools is shown at the beginning of each model in the catalog. The 2000 series requires 3.6 cfm whereas the 8300 series requires 10 cfm.
6. What is the recommended air pressure for the power tool?
All of our tools are tested at 90 psig and that is the recommended air pressure for all our power tools.
7. Do I really need lubricators for my power tool?
Unless you are willing to apply about two to three drops of pneumatic oil to each tool at the start of every shift you will need a lubricator for every two tools on the line. Proper lubrication of your power tool will insure long life.
8. Do I really need to filter my air for my power tool?
Compressed air can pick up particles from the compressor or the air line at any time. Unless these particles are filtered out they will eventually make it into the power tool causing air blockage at the inlet or damage to the vanes or motor.
9. What if my budget will not allow for three tools with 3 different torque settings?
You can purchase additional clutches for your one power tool and have them set at the factory to any torque value. Replacing the clutch in any of our tools takes less than 2 minutes. Removing a clutch is shown the Clutch Settings page. The part number for the clutch is shown at the beginning of each model along with a drawing of the clutch.
10. What if I need assistance after I receive the tool?
We are concerned that you are happy with the product you purchase from us. You can contact our customer service department at any time for assistance with your tool. We believe that no question is the wrong question, but it is wrong not to ask the question if you have a concern.
11. What if my tool is out of warranty but is not working properly?
We have an excellent service department who will be able to evaluate your tool and give you a cost to repair the tool. We do not charge to review a tool and even if you decide not to repair the tool, we will return it to you at no charge. Simply contact the factory via the phone, fax or e-mail stating that you have a tool that you have to send in for repair. The contact person will advise you where to ship the tool and give you a Return Goods Authorization number for the return. Or request a RGA number now on-line.
12. Is there an e-mail address where I can contact the factory?
Yes, you can contact us direct at [email protected].
