The gun offers extremely fast rundown speed and unmatched torque output accuracy, which allows it to safely and effectively complete almost any industrial bolting job. It fills a major gap in the industry, eliminating safety hazards and reducing frictional variances to significantly improve load precision.
“We are thrilled to launch the Z-Gun, the world’s first precision impact gun,” said Eric Junkers, president of HYTORC. “With this tool, we are delivering superior performance and safety for industrial bolting, while providing more accurate torque. We aim to change the industry for the better, and the Z-Gun is a major step forward in achieving that goal.”
The Z-Gun works in conjunction with the Z-Washer, eliminating the need for reaction fixtures, which are the leading cause of safety incidents in industrial bolting. The washer can be used with any of HYTORC’s latest hydraulic and pneumatic bolting systems to add safety and speed while eliminating unwanted nut loosening and/or leakage on pressurized connections.
One of the top benefits of the Z-Gun is the level of safety it provides, making it much less likely that users will pinch their fingers — a common problem with hydraulic and electric torque tools. This is based on HYTORC’s extensive research and development, which has focused largely on eliminating the reaction arm on this type of industrial equipment. As a result of these efforts, the Z-Gun is the safest industrial bolting system to offer both the speed and convenience of an impact gun, combined with adjustable and repeatable torque output.
“Over the years, HYTORC has become widely known as the leading innovator in industrial bolting tools, and the Z-Gun marks another enormous advancement in the industry,” said Jason Junkers, chief operating officer of HYTORC. “With this tool, we have addressed one of the biggest challenges for industrial users. We look forward to seeing the impact the Z-Gun will have in the long term.”
The release of the Z-Gun coincides with HYTORC’s 45th anniversary this year. In recent years, the company has invested heavily in providing equipment that improves efficiency and safety across a wide range of applications.
