Bosch Rexroth has launched the Nexo nutrunner: a cordless tightening tool specifically designed for bolt tightening in ‘Category A’ safety-critical applications.

The Nexo combines wireless capabilites with advanced tightening technology — a combination that is claimed to have the potential to improve efficiency, cycle times and data collection during the manufacturing process.

In operation, during each work step the integrated controller monitors the tightening and transmits the results over a wireless connection to a receiving station.

Process reliability is guaranteed even in radio dead spots by the tool’s ability to buffer the data and then transmit as soon as connection with the network has been re-established.

Key features and benefits

  • No external controls are required during operation as all necessary workings are integrated.
  • The tool offers browser-based software that is available online and is easy to set up with minimum training time required and with no additional software installation. Access to the browser-based software is independent of the operating system or terminal device.
  • Both power and control technologies are fully integrated into the new tool.
  • Batteries for the Nexo tool can be exchanged during production with no time loss resulting from rebooting due to the 20-second stay-alive function. During the exchange of the battery pack, the integrated controller is powered by the lithium-ion capacitor, enabling the tool to maintain communication during the exchange.
  • The nutrunner has direct availability of information via the impact-resistant graphics display and also enables quick access to stored information via the MicroUSB interface. The nutrunner can also be connected to any control system with Ethernet connectivity.
  • The Nexo forms part of Bosch Rexroth‘s total range of tools and is available in both a right-angle and a pistol grip, which ensures accurate bolt tightening in even difficult-to-reach applications. The right-angle nutrunner is available in three versions with a working range varying between 3Nm and 50Nm. The pistol-grip nutrunner is available in two versions with a working range between 1.8Nm and 12Nm. 
  • The tool is also equipped with a 36V slide-in battery pack, charger, suspension device, slide-in Accu Package, tool shelf and auxiliary handle.
