Understanding the Quality, Uses, and Performance Desoutter Pneumatic Fastening Tools

October 14th, 2019

Fast as lightning, high-performance Desoutter industrial fastening tools apply just the right amount of torque. The tightening action eventually becomes second-nature to the operator, although there’s never any daydreaming done while one of these pneumatically actuated instruments is being handled. No time for head-in-the-clouds musings, trained assembly teams are too busy upholding long-established quality-assurance rankings. Today, then, why don’t we talk about the inner workings— the system assemblies that make these fastening tools so job-proficient.

United Under the Desoutter Banner

That’s the first clue, the presence of a branded tool manufacturing company. This vendor consistently produces a wealth of best-in-class industrial tools. And many of these industrial-grade instruments use closed-loop circuitry. Let’s clarify that statement. With open-loop machinery, there’s no feedback to regulate the equipment’s powerful workings. Imagine a tool like that. A skilled worker would have to guess how much torque to apply. Alternatively, maybe a slightly more advanced model would include a torque gauge, but the tool guy would still need lightning reflexes to hit the right fastener tightening mark. Well, Desoutter pneumatic fastening tools don’t suffer from this breaking-point drawback. Equipped with ultra-sensitive feedback circuits, they slow and wind to a halt as they near their marked torque setting.

Equipped With Torque-Controlled Performance

Backing Up Our Case, let’s check out a model SD140-LA510-S4 torque-controlled screwdriver. Now, aircraft and automobile assembly workers are highly trained individuals, there’s no arguing this point. All the same, they can’t do their job properly unless they’re using high-quality, torque-regulated instruments. With that point clarified, we’ll return to the tool description. The SD140-LA510-S4 is a pen-like tool. Smooth and ergonomically designed, its housing is designed to minimise drive vibrations. In this way, an operator can tighten long lines of fasteners without experiencing wrist fatigue. Inside the device, an internal control unit, which is feedback-regulated, is hooked into a clutch module and gearbox. When a desired torque is reached, the controller disengages the air supply and shuts off the drive motor. Should the required tightening setting change, the device controls are easy to alter. Internally, the torque change slightly re-tensions the tool’s clutch spring.

Remarkably, Desoutter pneumatic fastening tools somehow manage to pack their handheld housings with scores of moving parts. The air-fuelled motor responsively reacts to the movements taking place in the clockwork-like gearbox and clutch modules. Springs and vibration mufflers, responsive clutches and gear drive components, every high-throughput tool subsystem pulls its own weight. Material-wise, the finest fatigue-resistant alloys and engineering plastics are employed. Between the material choices and air motor design, the tools consistently perform as required by the most demanding industry clients.
