BENEFITS

  • Compressed Air Cost & CO2 Emissions

    Over the last decade there has been an increase in understanding how much compressed air really costs. Manufacturers are going as far as separating the electrical cost to run the air compressors from the rest of the plant because it is so expensive. When comparing air tools to cordless tools we’ve found and show in our example application that an air tools costs 37 times that of a cordless assembly tool, that’s a 96% savings in electrical cost.

  • Safety

    A reduction in electrical cost isn't the only advantage for switching to cordless tools. Panasonic’s Assembly Tools also create a safer work environment through the elimination of air hoses which can be a potential trip hazard, a cleaner environment by reducing contaminated compressed air from being released into the plant and improved ergonomics with tools that offer virtually no torque reaction reducing injuries.
    The focus on plant safety has continued to increase over the last decade. Manufacturing increased their concern and safety of their employees due to a better understanding of costs per injury. Panasonic's light weight mechanical pulse tools offer little to no torque reaction up to 100nm creating excellent ergonomics therefore reducing operator fatigue and the potential of injury due to rotational torque.

  • Quality

    Cordless tools can improve quality through controlling the power delivered to the motor and monitoring the battery which prevents under torques giving repeatable and accurate torques. Whereas compressed air systems can fluctuate in pressure causing inconsistent torques even when using a FRL.
    An air compressors' controls can fluctuate up to 10 psi causing a change in output torque even when used with a regulator. Additionally, the compressed air piping system can play a role in pressure drops too. For instance, if the required CFM is greater than the amount of available CFM flow do to piping size restrictions then the pressure drops at the tool also causing inconsistent torques. Panasonic’s assembly tools correct this issue with an onboard processor. The tool monitors the battery and disables the tool when the battery is low to prevent under torques, therefore increasing repeatability and quality output of the manufactured product.

  • Flexibility

    Cordless tools provide the operator freedom to position the tool in the best ergonomic manner verse an air tool which can be limited due to the air hose touching product or the fixture. However, flexibility doesn’t just stop at the operator. What about the ease of moving an assembly process, cordless tools make it easy.
    Why restrict an operator from being able to ergonomically hold the tool to install fasteners? Air hoses and cables restrict operators from properly holding the tool caused by an obstruction limiting access or the hose is stretched and only allows the tool to be held in one direction. Cordless tool allow the freedom of positioning and movement giving it the best ergonomics. Easily carry the light weight tool in and out of a vehicle’s interior or into the fuselage of an airplane without any restrictions.

  • Downtime Recovery

    Downtime is very costly, however cordless tools help diminish the amount of lost production time. Cordless tools can be quickly swapped out and run off batteries.
    Cordless tools work independently from each other and can continue to be used during a power outage until the batteries are used completely. If a cordless tool experiences problems, it is removed from the line and immediately replaced with minimum inconvenience to the operator and the assembly line. If a battery fails, just replace it before the other battery is used up, no loss in production.

  • Maintenance

    Engineered to be virtually maintenance free, Panasonics' assembly tools only require a dab of grease on the mechanical pulse and anvil. There’s no oil to change, vanes to wear out, orings to fail or individual ball bearings to be lost.
    Maintenance costs appear from every direction and some are ongoing while others are a one-time cost. For example an ongoing cost for air tools is replenishing the lube in the FRL. There is quite the cost associated to maintaining an FRL; lube, labor to order the lube, labor time to check the FRL’s and labor to refill the FRL not to mention the repercussions to what happens when the FRL’s aren’t maintained, tool failure. A one-time cost for a cordless tool might be the battery after years of service and if you were thinking brushes, Panasonic’s Assembly Tools are brushless.

  • Installation Cost

    Since it's a cordless tool, installation is a cinch, just locate a 110V power source for the charger, set the tool to the desired torque and start production. On the other hand, compressed air requires labor for installation, materials and regular preventative maintenance for the FRL, find / repair air leaks.
