Mountz, Inc. introduces a complete line of shut off and non shut off pulse nutrunners to a growing pneumatic tool lineup branded FlexPower by Mountz. Built for high production environments, FlexPower pulse tools provide durability, power and speed for industrial assembly applications ranging from 4-150 N.m covering bolt sizes M5-M14. FlexPower tools are designed for safe, reaction free operation in straight, pistol and angle configurations with ¼” female hex and square drive options. FlexPower offers comfortable rubberized non-slip grips for easy handling and excellent thermal ergonomics. Low noise decibels, minimal vibration and low torque reaction make FlexPower a safe ergonomic selection.

These rugged assembly tools increase productivity and enhance product quality through precision torque control and user comfort. The FlexPower Pulse Tools provide operators with an industry leading power-to-weight ratio, allowing for a smaller tool selection for greater torques giving operators a lighter tool with more torque capability. Built for durability with a superior O-ring design and specially designed pulse fluid FlexPower extends life between regular oil changes and provides more torque stability than competing brands.

The Mountz FlexPower line now includes Cushion Clutch and Auto Shut-Off Screwdrivers, Pulse Nutrunners and soon Swingbar Torque Multipliers for applications up to 1250 N.m.

How Does a Pulse Tool Operate? A Pulse tool has the speed of an impact wrench with nearly the repeatability of clutch based shut-off 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. The air power is power source that spins the anvil and resistance against the fastener causes the pulse unit to activate. The fluid acts a shock absorber providing a powerful reactionless and vibration free nutrunner that is low in noise and highly ergonomic.

Featuring a wide selection of pulse tools, the Flex Power tool provides manufacturers with increased productivity, ergonomics, reliability and quality. Mountz offers the Flex Power pulse tools in an Auto Shut-Off and Non Shut-Off option. The different styles of the pneumatic pulse tools provide manufacturers with flexibility and ability to select the proper tool for their application. The standard In-Line models are available with various models covering a torque range of 5 – 47 N.m.

The Flex Power pistol grip pulse tool models features an ergonomic grip and Mountz offers various models covering a torque range of 5 – 148 N.m. Flex Power is also offered in an angle configuration covering a torque range of 8.5 – 60 N.m. Angle nutrunners are ideal for applications that have limited space restrictions and require a bolt or fastener to be tightened accurately.

Mountz pneumatic pulse tools are designed to improve the quality of manufacturer’s product and reputation. The Flex Power pulse tools reduce liability and costs, while enhancing production and make working conditions safer for operators. Controlling torque is quintessential for companies to ensure their product’s quality, safety and reliability isn’t compromised. The failure of a five-cent bolt that isn’t properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently torqued can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners. Using a quality torque tool has become increasingly important for many companies to ensure that proper torque is being applied and maintains gauge requirements associated with the ISO 9001 Quality Standard.
