When trenching is impractical, Hole Hammers let contractors install irrigation or utility lines. The tool bores holes for telephone, water, or gas lines, and electrical cables under streams, driveways, walks, or patios.
Available in four sizes from 2 1/8 inch to 4 1/8 inch, accessories are available for expanding hole sizes, pulling pipe, and tracking the tools. A heat-treated alloy steel barrel and nitrated steel piston give wear resistance.
Air-assisted forward and positive-lock reverse use air pressure to hold the tool in forward position. Rotating the hose 1 1/2 turns locks the tool in reverse.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
