    Productivity Without the Cord — Hilti Introduces Two New 36 V Cordless Tools

  • May 16, 2017

    Hilti is expanding its 36 V cordless tool line with the introduction of the Cordless rotary hammer TE 6-A36-AVR and the Cordless angle grinder AG 600-A36. These new, highly productive cordless tools perform as well as their respective corded versions without the hassle of a cord and external power source. Operators will benefit from the tools’ ergonomic design and lightweight, balanced handling.

    Cordless Rotary Hammer TE 6-A36-AVR

    Featuring Hilti Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) technology, the Hilti Cordless rotary hammer TE 6-A36-AVR outperforms similar corded and cordless rotary hammer drills. The TE 6-A36 has two battery options, the Hilti B36/5.2 CPC Li-Ion industry class battery for the most work-per-charge performance and the B36/2.6 Li-Ion compact class battery for operators who need to reduce the tool's operating weight, especially when working overhead. The tool’s ergonomic design with a D-grip for comfort over long periods of time and built-in AVR, keeps operators working longer more comfortably.

    The Hilti TE 6-A36-AVR includes a chiseling feature for light-duty corrective chipping and can be converted to virtually dust-free operation by adding the optional TE 6-A dust removal system (DRS). It delivers 1.5 ft-lb of single impact energy and a 1040 rpm gear speed for exceptional drilling and hammering in concrete or masonry. Using an optional quick-release chuck, this cordless rotary hammer can also be used on steel, wood and plastic.

    Cordless Angle Grinder AG 600-A36

    The Hilti Cordless angle grinder AG 600-A36 delivers similar grinding performance of a 7-in corded grinder with reduced weight and improved maneuverability. Powered by the Hilti B36/5.2 CPC Li-Ion battery pack, the AG 600-A36 angle grinder has class-leading power, a slim design and is lightweight for better versatility on the job. Its built-in Active Torque Control (ACT) helps protect the user from kickback without impacting performance.

    The Hilti AG 600-A36 features a brushless motor that extends the life of the tool by up to three times as long as the average grinder. It will also deliver more work per charge than other cordless angle grinders currently available because it uses batteries with Hilti CPC technology, enabling a higher charge and deeper discharge per cycle.

    The angle grinder’s 5/8-in x 11-in Kwik-lock keyless flange system allows for quick blade changes and utilizes industry standard thread-on consumables such as grinding, flap, diamond and wire wheels to help drive productivity.

    The Hilti AG 600-A36 is an ideal cordless angle grinder for notching, grinding and finishing steel beams, plates, and mesh; cutting and grinding cast iron pipes, as well as steel and stainless steel profiles; in addition to cutting and grinding struts, threaded rods and sheet metal.

    Hilti has also upgraded the new AG 500-A22 cordless angle grinder with the 5/8-in x 11-in arbor. This new 5-inch cordless angle grinder allows the user to achieve maximum productivity by providing performance that is comparable to 4-1/2” corded grinder and outstanding work-per-charge thanks to the new 22v battery platform.

    Hilti's TE 6-A36-AVR, AG 600-A36 and AG 500-A22 are covered by the Hilti Tool Warranty 20/2/1 — 20 years of repair or replacement of defective parts; 2 years no cost repair including wear and tear; and a guaranteed 1-day turn-around on repairs.*

    Industry 4.0 scenarios such as Predictive Maintenance are based on the provision of data and networked communication. For this to happen, IoT-compatible devices equipped with the necessary communication options are required. With its new IoT interface, Rittal is now laying the foundation for the optimal integration of cooling units and chillers in Industry 4.0 applications. This makes continuous communication from the sensor to the cloud possible, as well as connection to superordinate monitoring or energy management systems.

    Despite the rise in Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone systems, many technicians and installers are not aware of how to troubleshoot network performance issues to ensure VoIP quality, says IDEAL Networks.
