In the automobile industry, in which speed and precision are everything, bolt-tightening tasks in assembly always require accurate torque tolerances. It takes a specially designed pneumatic mechanical wrench to tighten joints quickly and efficiently. Japanese manufacturer Yokota Industrial Company offers the perfect solution with its popular line of impulse wrenches, renowned for their speed and high accuracy.
In Canada, Yokota’s impulse wrenches are available through Dobco Equipment, a leading tool distributor in this country.
An ideal fail-safe system
Yokota impulse wrenches are light and small, yet powerful, tools that have no kickback. Their high-speed operation can be a valuable benefit in vehicle assembly, in which the tightening process can account for as much as ten per cent of the time it takes to put a whole car together. With Yokota’s help, this process moves much more quickly.
The pinpoint accuracy of these wrenches creates a necessary fail-safe system in automobile assembly. To ensure that all bolted joints are tightened properly, it is essential to use an impulse wrench connected to a controller that notifies the user if any tightened joints do not meet the required specifications of the task – in which case, the joints are double-checked manually.
One of the many advantages of using a Yokota impulse wrench is its twin-blade impulse mechanism for sealing oil, which gives the wrenches a high level of repeatability. The mechanism also works to give the wrench low levels of noise and vibration, which makes assembly environments safer for workers.
Yokota produces four styles of impulse wrenches:
- YLa – low maintenance costs, high motor efficiency, half the wearing amount of conventional vanes, and ergonomic design. Pistol-type.
- Y – compact size and weight, low noise, low vibration, strong durability, and stable and speedy tightening. Available in pistol- or straight-type.
- YX – minimal kickback force, stable rotation, reduced resonance of tightening works, and increased durability in sockets. Available in pistol-, corner, or straight-type.
- YBX Cordless Battery – compact size and weight, low noise, low vibration, reduced resonance of tightening works, and increased durability in sockets. Pistol-type.
