An impact wrench (often called a torque gun) is a valuable tool that delivers high torque to a fastener with minimal reaction transferred back to the operator. The mechanism inside an impact wrench is simple but effective- it contains one or two hammers that spin freely around a shaft and momentarily engage to deliver almost all of thier energy into sudden bursts of torque, much like striking a nail with a conventional hammer does. Impact wrenches are offered in a variety of sizes and speeds. At Lou Zampini and Associates, we offer impact wrenches from the most respected companies including Chicago Pneumatic, Ingersoll Rand, and ATP. The materials and designs of our impact wrench lines are the most advanced and effective available, including carbon, titanium and composite components to lower weight and increase durability. We carry all sizes including 1/4" and 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1" and larger impact wrenches to suit any application. Torque controlled impacts are also available to add precision where necessary.
Automatic feed drills are ideal for applications where precision production drilling of parts is needed. They are available in both pneumatic and electric drive configurations up to 1.5 HP. These are simple but complete drilling machines capable of drilling to a precise depth with only a single start signal. The only requirement is to supply air or electricity, place them in the mounting brackets, and give them a start signal.
Handheld pneumatic drills offer portability and power where automatic feed drills cannot be used. Hand operated drills are available in straight case for small diameter and production line drilling, pistol grip for general industrial drilling, and angle heads including right angle, 30 degree, 45 degree, and 90x90 degree variations for restricted access drilling. They are available in RPMs up to 20,000 and up to 1 HP motors capable of drilling up to 1/2" holes in steel. Key and keyless chucks, collet chucks, and screw shank outputs are also available options.
Air motors (pneumatic motors) provide high torque in a compact package. They offer an alternative to electric motors where either size or environment may preclude the electric motor and are used in a wide variety of applications that require rotary motion and power. Air motors are often 1/3 or less the size and weight of an electric motor of the same power. They offer the added advantage in applications where stalling the motor is required without overheating the motor, such as tightening a fastener. There is no risk of overheating with rapid start / stop and reverse operations and they can be used in high moisture, dust, and high heat environments. In addition, ATEX rated motors are certified against explosion and ideally suited for hazardous environments.
DC Electric fastening tools are the premier choice of industries across the globe. This technology is used in Aerospace, Automotive, Offroad, Energy, Agriculture, and many other segments where "quality critical" and "safety critical" are the standard. They are used in aircraft assembly operations where "good enough" will never be acceptable, and they are also used to achieve the spot on precision required by the demanding safety requirements of the automotive assembly industry. Transducerized DC electric tools provide precision and traceability that leads to unprecedented performance, productivity, and accountability so that your assembly applications meet your requirements consistently. We offer a variety of Desoutter and Ingersoll Rand DC electric nutrunners, pulse tools, controllers, and accessories so that you can realize these benefits in your assembly applications today. In addition, we provide repair services for Desoutter DC nutrunners and controllers, Georges Renault DC nutrunners and controllers, Ingersoll Rand DC nutrunners and controllers, and Techmotive DC nutrunners and controllers.
Compression rivet squeezers are used to squeeze a wide variety of rivet types, materials, and sizes in a uniform manner every time the trigger is pulled regardless of operator skill. They are commonly used in aerospace, airplane construction, truck, bus, boat, toy, and automotive applications. A hydraulic action creates a powerful, controlled squeeze that designed to provide accurate and reliable results. These tools excel at rivet squeezing, punching, dimpling, and pressing and will help to increase production where costly two man operations have been traditionally used. Our selection is available in single and tandem cylinder variations with either "C-Yoke" or "Alligator" style jaws.
Tool stands, spring balancers, and zero-gravity balancers are designed to reduce fatigue to operators and help prevent injury. They are made to withstand harsh industrial production environments and feature simple but robust and reliable designs. Tool stands come in numerous sizes and capacities, and can greatly reduce torque reaction to the operator while maintaining ample flexibility around the work area. Spring balancers are designed to retract a tool above the work area when it is not in use, and zero gravity balancers are designed to counter the weight of a wide range of tools and provide a sense of weightlessness where the tool can be positioned and let go at any point in the travel of the balancer.
Competition is driving product quality requirements to new levels. Air and electric fastening tools are all rated to deliver torque within a specified range from the factory, but over time other factors can affect the tool's ability to maintain this accuracy level. Internal parts wearing down, repeated drops and jolts by the tool's operator, or a contaminated air supply are some of the things that can affect the performance of a tool. In order to be sure that your tools are continually performing to thier specification torque testing, verification, and calibration should be routinely performed at scheduled intervals. Our torque testers, analyzers, transducers, and joint kits are all designed to help you achieve the consistency and quality that is necessary to keep your precision tools working as expected.
Advancements in manufacturing and production continue to drive the evolution of industrial finishing. While traditional, heavy-duty removal continues in many segments, increases in production and reductions in waste are changing overall demands. New materials may require different tool speeds and attachments; and parts and components must match surrounding surfaces with greater accuracy and uniformity. Our lines of sanders, grinders, and needle scalers are all designed to provide the power, accuracy, and reliability required to meet these increasing demands while providing your operators with best-in-class ergonomics so that they can work longer with less fatigue.
Our hammering and cutting tool offerings include reciprocating saws, cut-off tools, air hammers, air shears, and power nibblers that give you the power, versatility, and reliability required to get the job done. We want the tool to do the work, not the operator. From proven classic heavy duty designs that provide performance with little fuss to advanced vibration reduced tools that perform the job with superior comfort levels, our selection has you covered with tools that with cut and hammer day in and day out so that you can worry about your products, not your tools.
