Chicago Pneumatic’s BlueTork Nutrunners: The most reliable and ergonomic solution for truck and bus tire changing operations
When truck and bus wheels are mounted and tightened properly, it ensures the safety of drivers and passengers, and can reduce road accidents. Chicago Pneumatic’s BlueTork CP7600 nutrunner series is a reliable and ergonomically designed tool, when used in a comprehensive wheel preparation process that offers a unique torque control solution. The BlueTork nutrunner can tighten wheel nuts to a precise specification without using impact force. It is the only non-impact tool with a shut-off nutrunner available on the market for fleet maintenance applications.
"The BlueTork nutrunner is a unique piece of equipment for organizations who are looking to improve their fleet maintenance in terms of quality, ergonomics and reliability. In addition to providing operator comfort, the BlueTork nutrunner performs an important function in the wheel tightening process. This is particularly important for vehicles with frequent start-stop journeys, such as those taken by city buses or refuse trucks," says Christophe Roland, product marketing manager at Chicago Pneumatic Tools.
The BlueTork nutrunner enables operators easily to re-set torque for each use, providing accurate, precise tightening to the original equipment manufacturer's guidelines. The shut off valve controls the tightening process, while the torque reaction is taken by a reaction bar. The tool uses a dual motor setup which provides initial run-down at 100 rpm (50 ft.lbs) to quickly snug the nut, while the second motor rotates at 8 rpm to deliver the final specified torque.
