The light and portable TurnPro tool can automatically assemble two ferrules and a high-purity-tube fitting to manufacturer recommendations. The tool is easy to handle because controls in the power house (motor body) accurately measure 1.25 turns from “finger tight” and then shuts itself off. The tool provides a repeatable fitting make-up every time. It handles 1/16 to ½ in. heavy-wall tube and tees, crosses, and valves. The unit also provides data logging for quality control, and it reduces labor costs by making workers more efficient. Also important, it simplifies overhead installations. Workers need only one hand.
The ferrule-tightening adaptor can be swapped for ProCut, an adaptor that provides tube cutting for fast, efficient, clean cuts in heavy wall stainless steel tubing. And, the ProBend head for the same motor body, lets an operator set a needed bend angle for automatic bending or use a touch button to set the bend to any needed position by observation.
