New from FLEX: IW 1/2" 18.0-EC
New cordless impact wrench from FLEX: Powerful and reliable
Steinheim, September 2017 – FLEX-Elektrowerkzeuge GmbH extends its range of products with the new FLEX IW 1/2“ 18.0-EC powerful cordless impact wrench which is based on the innovative brushless technology. The wrench loosens and tightens screws, bolts and nuts almost effortlessly: its impact speed is 3,300 bpm maximum, the no-load speed is 600 – 2,500 rpm, the maximum torque 250 Nm. Further plus points are its comfortable operation in conjunction with a high degree of precision.
The FLEX IW 1/2“ 18.0-EC cordless impact wrench is characterised by long battery runtimes and a powerful, brushless high-performance EC motor, which guarantees high efficiency and a long service life. It can be operated with all available 18.0 V battery packs. The Electronic Management System (EMS) protects the tool, provides a long service life, and increases efficiency. The Speed Command function allows three different speed ranges to be set to suit a variety of applications. This prevents small screws being over-tightened. The Impact Control function allows screws to be countersunk with perfection. An accelerator switch with locking function, an electronic quick-acting brake and clockwise/anticlockwise rotation with a safety catch are safety features designed to protect the user. The square drive for 1/2” drive nuts provides functional flexibility. The integrated LED light with persistence function and the LED battery charge indicator are important visual aids for the user. From the outside, the FLEX IW 1/2‘‘ 18.0-EC cordless impact wrench catches the eye with its robust aluminium die-cast transmission housing with protective cap and its ergonomically designed Softgrip handle. A removable belt clip with bitgarage rounds off the new addition to the product range. The cordless impact wrench will be available from authorised dealers from the middle of September.
