SEMA Show, Day Two: New Ingersoll Rand cordless tools
Ingersoll Rand is debuting a new line of 12V compact cordless tools at the 2013 at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas in booth #10149.
Joshua Johnson, engineering manager for cordless tools at Ingersoll Rand, said that as technology advances, automobiles get smaller and more complex and technicians need compact tools to perform tight space repairs.
The Ingersoll Rand IQV12 Series cordless tools enable technicians to access narrow spaces faster and easier. The IQV12 Series includes three Impactools, two ratchets, a drill/driver, a screwdriver and an LED task light.
IQV12 Series Impactools are available in ¼- and 3/8-inch square and ¼-inch hex quick-change models, and deliver 100 ft.-lbs. of reverse torque to tackle hard-to-remove fasteners in hard-to-reach places. Measuring 5.9 inches from tip to tail, IQV12 Series Impactools feature small-diameter, ergonomically designed handles for improved comfort.
Ingersoll Rand designed two cordless ratchet wrenches on the 12V battery platform. The R1100 Series ratchets are available in 3/8- and ¼-inch drives. Both ratchets deliver up to 30 ft.-lbs. of torque and have durable heads to handle additional manual ratcheting, when the application demands it. R1100 Series ratchets have a patent-pending slim-line battery design and paddle-style trigger that allows for easy operation in a variety of grip positions and angles.
The company says the D1130 3/8-inch drill/driver is one of the most versatile tools in the IQV12 Series. With two speeds and a 15-position clutch, the drill/driver supports drilling and fastening applications. The D1130 has 1,600 rpm and 205 in.-lbs. of torque for faster drilling, and weighs only 2.43 pounds to help minimize user fatigue.
Like the IQV12 Series drill/driver, the D1410 screwdriver has two speed settings and a 15-position clutch. The screwdriver is designed to support assembly and disassembly applications, and features a magnetic, pin-detent bit holder for fast, one-handed bit changes. The D1410 has a variable-speed switch with an electronic brake to provide maximum control of the tool and a smaller-diameter, ergonomically designed handle to help reduce operator fatigue and tool vibration during extended use.
The L1110 LED task light completes the IQV12 Series cordless line. The ultra-bright white LED light has a 20,000-hour life and delivers up to 180 lumens of light for up to 6.5 hours on a single charge.
Every tool in the line is powered by a long lasting 2.0 Ah 12V lithium-ion battery. The battery has a positive-lock feature that emits a click to let the technician know when the battery is properly secured in the tool, helping to prevent drops and damage.
“Over the past year, Ingersoll Rand rolled out a line of high-powered 20V IQV20 Series cordless tools with the convenience of cordless and the power of air. Now, we’ve developed a line of versatile 12V cordless products to meet the needs of the compact market,” said Nathan Schmid, marketing manager – vehicle services at Ingersoll Rand. “The new IQV12 Series gives users the convenience of cordless tools in compact packages, making it easier for technicians to access tight spaces.”
