ROCK HILL, S.C., June 30, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Chicago Pneumatic has launched an innovative cordless connected torque wrench – the CP86 series – which delivers exceptional mobility and precision for general bolting applications. The connected tool is the first on the market compatible with an app to provide instant performance feedback while on the job, and better control quality processes in the field, resulting in an increase of productivity.
“Keeping the customer’s needs in mind, the CP86 series was designed to offer high torque and high performance levels,” says Paul Olsowske, Product Marketing Manager at Chicago Pneumatic. “Our new torque wrench series provides the mobility of a battery tool with high precision and process control features. This makes it easier for operators to tighten bolts quickly and properly on their first attempt, ultimately saving time and increasing productivity.”
The new range comprises of four models providing torque levels from 300 Nm (170 ft.lb) to 8100 Nm (5975 ft/lb) and is suitable for bolting applications in the energy, mining, construction, and railway industries. Examples would be oil and gas pipelines, wind turbines, heavy-duty vehicles, and off-road equipment. Each model is also available in three variations depending on the requirements of the application. We offer the standalone CP86 and two connected versions (C, & CQ), that have Bluetooth connections to our new app, CPLinQ. This dedicated app provides many levels of performance, tool maintenance status and tightening reports.
The CP86 torque wrench provides a constant tightening speed of up to 10 rpm for excellent control and delivers high precision with +/- 4%* accuracy. This high accuracy ensures that bolts are tightened correctly, thus preventing over- or under-tightening and reduces the associated risks of bolt joint failure. Thanks to a new battery generation, the tool also offers excellent mobility, allowing users to work with the tool anywhere for a long time without needing to recharge it. Since it is cordless, there is no need for pumps or compressors that are required with hydraulic and pneumatic equipment.
Excellent process control can be achieved thanks to the CPLinQ app which provides managers with instant access to the real-time status of the tool and job performance data. The C variation features tool status management, a maintenance timeline, and an operating alert so operators can anticipate any tool issues before they arise, while carrying out preventative maintenance activities. By the same, the P-set (configuration) mode allows security in the job by decreasing human error on torque or angle selection.
The CQ version offers the additional functionality of data collection, quick reports, and P-sets with counting sequence amongst others. Armed with the performance data, operators can save time spent on each job, while decreasing error rates, and time reworking a bolt. Furthermore, users of the CP86 CQ can reinforce their overall company quality standard.
The CP86 features a long-lasting and compact 36V / 2.5 Ah battery which allows for extended use. The high cycle rate of more than 250 cycles** per charge, is almost 50% higher compared to other tools in its class and means operators can get more use from each charge to increase their productivity. Additionally, the battery has a high drain capacity enabling it to continuously supply the right energy level at the right moment.
The tool delivers excellent performance without compromising safety. The CP86 Series offers protection features that include a second start button and swiveling with an ergonomic handle so operators can be confident in achieving a good grip.
“Chicago Pneumatic is celebrating its 120-year anniversary in 2021. The company has a legacy of passion for performance and long-lasting partnerships and we are committed to developing innovative, reliable products and services based on technology and trust,” concludes Paul Olsowske. “This new series of torque wrenches is part of an innovative range of products designed to help managers improve their productivity. It is also designed to help operators secure their jobs while working in safer conditions through intelligent technologies and a problem-solving approach.”
