Businesses all over the world rely on Desoutter for the most innovative assembly tools – which are available in Canada via Dobco Equipment. One of Desoutter’s most recent and groundbreaking products is the EABS, a battery-powered, one-hand nut runner that is designed for top ergonomic comfort. This device is recommended for tasks in the aerospace and automotive sectors, as workers in these industries often find some fasteners and joints hard to reach.
Compact length eliminates space constraints
Knowing that assembly workers get frustrated when trying to manoeuvre power tools in cramped spaces, Desoutter gave this one-hand nut runner a compact, 30-centimetre length. Since these workers often need one hand free to support them or to hold other components out of the way, this compact length enables one-hand operation while eliminating space constraints, thereby increasing productivity. The EABS is particularly a boon to automobile assembly, which faces this production challenge on a daily basis.
Desoutter specifically designed this one-hand nut runner for these tasks – and it exceeds all other nut runners on the market with its performance, accessibility, and flexibility. Between 20 and 35 per cent more compact than similar tools are, the EABS weighs only a kilogram and offers 360-degree visibility feedback. So users can tighten fasteners of up to 24 Newton metres, very quickly and easily, in cramped conditions.
By offering the EABS, Dobco helps Canadian assembly workers achieve a perfect balance between ergonomic comfort and high productivity. A core model can run at more than 1,000 revolutions per minute on an 18-volt battery. Another advantage is that this cordless tool can work as part of a wireless network; the user can pair it with a Desoutter CONNECT smart hub, with easy rebalancing, for applications requiring complete traceability. This pairing process is contactless and takes less than ten seconds.
Yet another benefit: the EABS is designed to eliminate all programming errors, like inaccurate IP-address assignment, which leads to hours of unnecessary, unplanned downtime to resolve on a network.
For an extra hand in assembly applications, businesses can count on the EABS – a perfect cordless solution.
