Automotive: Hard Parts Hunting
Tool provides the power technicians need to handle bolts that are hard to break, rusted or tough to loosen.
Ingersoll Rand has introduced the 1 in. Cordless Impactool Impact Wrench. Operators and technicians increase productivity, convenience and safety when tightening or loosening high-torque bolts with the tool’s powerful, cordless design.
“The W9691 Cordless Impact Wrench is the most powerful 1 in. cordless impact on the market,” said Jason Rowe, Global Cordless Product Manager at Ingersoll Rand. “With its quick setup and no hoses to trip over, the 1 in. cordless impact wrench promotes better safety and efficiency for operators.”
With 3,000 ft.-lbs. of nut-busting torque, the 1 in. tool provides the power technicians need to handle bolts that are hard to break, rusted or tough to loosen, all in one cordless design. The 1 in. Cordless Impact Wrench is the first cordless tool on the market to reach this level of torque.
The tool comes with two anvil options, an extended, 6 in. anvil and a short, standard anvil for optimal versatility. The 6 in. anvil is ideal for vehicle repair applications as it helps operators access hard-to-reach places. The standard anvil offers the convenience of a cordless design without sacrificing power for operators working in extreme environments such as oil and gas refineries, foundries and other industrial sectors.
Because the tool is cordless, the 1-inch Impactool increases safety and productivity. With no hoses and no need for an air compressor, operators can complete tasks quickly and efficiently and contribute to cost-savings due to minimal maintenance. The absence of hoses also removes tripping hazards, so operators can avoid the possibility of injuries.
A power control shut-off system automatically shuts off the tool when it has reached the set torque amount, which prevents over-tightening and stripping of the bolt. The tool has four different power modes: full reverse, max tighten and two modes in-between to prevent over-tightening and stripping.
The tool includes two 5.0 Amp Hours batteries to last a full workday and can perform up to 250 bolt removals and installations on a single battery charge. There are various kit options available, including the W9691-KE4 with a dual bay charger and four batteries.
