Precise cutting without recoil: The ergonomic EVO9 cable tie tool

The non-stop tying and cutting of cable ties is an energy-sapping task for many assembly line workers. The jarring recoil that occurs when standard tools shear off the excess plastic band behind the tie head places great strain on the joints and ligaments. This can lead to injury and illness-related absences. Thanks to a piece of clever engineering, help is now at hand in the form of HellermannTyton’s EVO9 – a safer and more effective manual cable tie tool.

Reducing the risk to life and limb from hydraulic hose failure

HEGWS Burst Protection Sleeving mec, hose failureIt is hard to imagine a world without hydraulic technology. Fluid power, or hydraulics (Greek hydor, meaning water and aulos, meaning pipe) has been used extensively in mechanics since classical times. Today, heavy equipment actuated by hydraulics are used extensively throughout the construction, mining and agricultural industries.

Yet the very nature of nature of heavy duty scenarios means that hydraulic hoses are subjected to a lot of strain and abrasion that can result in their failure. Burst protection sleeving can really help. […] Continue reading
