Feb. 9, 2017—Chicago Pneumatic has launched a series of “Expert Corner Technical Guides” designed to help improve pneumatic tool performance and workplace safety.

Aimed at specifiers and users of pneumatic tools in the automotive industry, the guide offers practical advice for selecting, using and maintaining a particular type of pneumatic tool.

First in the series is "What Gives Power To Your Impact Wrench?" Starting with some fundamental principles, this guide explains how impact wrenches work and defines the impact mechanisms involved. It also explains the differences between soft and hard joints and how this affects tool selection.

“Operator comfort can vary significantly depending on the job in hand, the torque range and the power," said Christophe Rouxel, technical support expert at Chicago Pneumatic. "The application will also determine the impact mechanism design, in terms of weight, vibration, speed and durability. Understanding all these influencing factors is key to getting the best out of your tool.”

"What Gives Power To Your Impact Wrench?" is available to download for free from Chicago Pneumatic’s website.
