An ASG BL-7000 torque
controlled screwdriver.

Torque Controlled Screwdriver Has A Brushless Motor

The ASG BL-7000 torque controlled screwdriver has a brushless motor, eliminating carbon dust and providing longer life. Its brushless design allows it to be rated for continuous use with minimum heat build-up.

BL-7000 drivers automatically stop when a preset torque is reached, reducing both over- and under-tightening. Torques can be set using a hex wrench between 5 and 21 lbf/in. Tamper proof torque adjustment is also available.

The BL-7000 is recommended for high production vertical insertion of fasteners and other standard torque assembly applications.

Filtered Preseparator Works With Current System
Nilfisk-Advance America's filtered pre-separator, a heavy-duty collection tank, can be integrated into central vacuum systems. It connects to the central system's outlets and is powered by the system's suction.

The filtered preseparator reduces the threat of cross contamination in pharmaceutical manufacturing applications. All powders are filtered and held within its tank instead of traveling through the outlet to the central system where they could be mixed together.

It also simplifies drug accountability. Users can collect a material, empty the tank and determine the amount of materials collected vs. the amount used during production.

Condition Analysis System Includes Software
UE Systems' Ultraprobe 10000 is a multilevel digital ultrasonic condition analysis system with two basic components.

The first is a handheld metered pistol ultrasonic sensing instrument. It has onboard sound recording and data logging.

The second component is analytical software that will convert most computers into workstations with comprehensive diagnostic functions, including spectral analysis, record keeping, trending and reporting.

Test data can be uploaded to the Ultraprobe or downloaded to a host computer. When data are uploaded, inspectors have the ability to compare current test results with baseline data on the same screen.
