Hydro-pneumatic tool with pressure setting for installing threaded inserts in varying material thicknesses.


The Avdel 74201 tool complements the 74200 model by offering the additional feature of pressure setting so that the insert is always fully formed, regardless of clamping capacity changes. It is designed for applications where inserts are being placed into the same application with varying sheet thicknesses. The tool installs inserts to a set hydraulic pressure, rather than operating to a fixed stroke.
