Thorite roadshows launch electronic 'plug and tighten' power tools

Friday 25th November 2005

Compressed air and fluid process systems specialists, Thorite, demonstrated the innovative CVIP "Plug & Tighten" electronic power tools from CP Desoutter at two roadshows in November.

These new tools are reputed to be the world's first hand held range of assembly tools to feature advanced electronic communication and control technology.

The "Plug & Tighten" range is capable of 3-65Nm of torque. The tools ensure unbeatable assembly quality by continuously monitoring torque values to maintain a constant and accurate fastening (up to 3% at 6 sigma).

Additional features include ergonomic design, tamper-proof torque programming, standard 240V power, the ability to communicate with pocket PCs, a maintenance-free brushless motor for significantly extended tool life and 20 times less energy consumption than conventional pneumatic tools.

Aimed at personnel employed in vehicle servicing, workshops and general industry, the well attended roadshows were staged at Thorite's Bradford Head Office and their Bolton Sales and Service Centre.

Visitors from both sides of the Pennines took the opportunity to operate and discuss the tools with representatives from Thorite and CP Desoutter, with additional attractions including special offers, prize draw, free gifts and refreshments.
