The line of Atlas tools for installing blind threaded inserts has been newly expanded with the introduction of a complete range of diverse models offering ideal capabilities to meet particular operational and application requirements. Atlas tools are available in spin-spin, pull-to-pressure, pull-to-stroke or combination versions to install steel, brass, aluminum or stainless steel blind threaded inserts permanently and reliably.
The expanded Atlas tool line includes heavy-duty models featuring 7,000 lbs of pull force to install even the largest, thick wall, stainless inserts; small and lightweight versions; versions dedicated to install specific types of inserts in various thread sizes; and hand tools suitable for field installations, repair work or prototype applications. Several feature the pull-to-pressure mode, which helps accelerate production rates and prevent over-installing or double-installing to ensure the integrity of fastener threads. The line additionally includes a hexcutter tool uniquely engineered to convert round holes to hexagonal holes where full or half-hex bodied inserts might be necessary.
The tools operate on 90 psi air pressure (with a battery-powered alternative for applications where air power is unavailable). All feature a hardened socket head cap screw mandrel, whose easy replacement can help minimize cost of operation.
