Battery actuated crimping tools
BURNDY announces new lithium-ion line of PATRIOT crimping tools.
Manchester, N.H., September 21, 2010—BURNDY, a manufacturer and provider of connector solutions to the industrial, energy, construction, telecommunication, petrochemical, data center and transportation industries, announces the introduction of its lithium-ion line of PATRIOT battery actuated crimping tools.
BURNDY has incorporated lithium-ion (Li-ion) technology, enhanced electronics and refined hydraulic systems, advancing the PATRIOT line of crimping and cutting tools to the forefront of performance, speed and reliability.
The advantages of the new 18-volt 3.0 Ah lithium-ion technology over Ni-Cd and Ni-MH are no memory effects, no self discharge, no conditioning required and a longer battery life—2.5 times more charge/discharge cycles than traditional Ni-Cd batteries and provides 430 percent more lifetime work. The charge time is only 30 minutes, twice as fast as Ni-Cd and the battery weights 40 percent less than Ni-MH batteries.
The new Li-ion tools have over-molded handles for comfort and improved grip. All BURNDY PATRIOT tools are proudly made in the USA.
BURNDY will continue to offer the current line of Ni-MH PATRIOT tools, allowing customers' choice and flexibility.
