Critical fastening duties are among the most essential tightening operations within industry today. So whether you’re in the business of assembling cars or trucks, tractors or harvesters, trains or planes, you need to be in control when it comes to production and quality assurance.
The Atlas Copco STwrench is much more than a standard transducerized hand-held nutrunner. Due to its modular design, you can build the STwrench to meet your exact requirements and create a tool that perfectly matches your applications.
Use the STwrench for production to get full traceability of the entire tightening operation, including torque control, angle control and yield control. Or build your wrench to just tighten your joint with high torque accuracy. Or use it for quality control to check residual torque, to perform joint analysis, including joint behaviour and stiffness, to set the correct tightening parameters for production and to test the reproducibility of joint stiffness on the benches.
With the STwrench you can build the functionality you need into your own tool. Choose three patented components – smartHEAD, RBU and the power supplysolution to suit your exact requirements. Then add a fourth: the patented controller that is standard for all STwrenches. Due to the modular design of the STwrench, you can mix and match components to suit all types of applications.
Use it as a basic stand-alone system or integrate it with Atlas Copco hardware and software. The STwrench is versatile enough to tighten hard-to-reach bolts using a variety of torque and angle strategies while providing complete traceability. Yet it handles quality control of residual torque just as easily as it does comprehensive joint analysis.
The smartHEAD has a built-in memory chip to store calibration values that are automatically recognized by the STwrench controller. Choose from six different sizes ranging from 15 to 1000 Nm, which is connected to the controller by a patented system allowing a fast connection. It can be with or without Gyroscope and the torque transducer is made to guarantee length-independent reading. TAG recognition patented solution is used to assure Poka-Yoke operations. It includes at front a Led bright light to improve visibility in dark bolt area.
This is the brain of the wrench. It has a clear and visible display, LED ring, vibrating handle and buzzer for immediate feedback to the operator. It has dedicated slots where you can insert the RBU, one wireless module and the Bar Code Module (see Optional Accessories).
The STwrench Controller can be powered by a patented bi-energy solution such as the long life STwrench Battery or by Tensor SL connected to the Power Focus via the STwrench Cable Box.
Atlas Copco’s patented Rapid Backup Unit (RBU) concept transfers functionality to a non-configured hardware unit, ensuring that hardware can easily be upgraded. The RBU also acts as back-up for programming and configuration. If a change of hardware is required, just fit the RBU to the new hardware, switch on the unit and you’re ready. All programming and network configurations are transferred in seconds. The RBU cuts downtime to a minimum.
The BLM API is a software tool that makes possible for a programmer to integrate in his own code the function to manage one or more STwrenches via cable or WiFi. Only STwrenches with API RBU can be connected.
Square connection smartHEAD have been added to the range of smartHEADs. The square connection smartHEADs allow customers to use any square end fitting, losing thought the poka yoke system offered by end fittings in this catalogue. BI controller is the new controller with the battery inserted in the STwrench handle. New batteries are to be used only in this controller. Recharge these batteries using standard battery charger with BI battery charger adapter.
