Introducing the new ‘Elec-Arm’ – Electric Thread Installation Tool for Self-Tapping Thread Inserts

Written by Steve Imm on May 16, 2019 in Blog

Tappex have recently introduced a high quality range of electric installation tooling machines, for installing self-tapping type threaded inserts.

The electric driver range complements our existing range of pneumatic drivers and has a great wealth of features that are more difficult to achieve, using the current range of pneumatic machines.

The electric driver range runs on 230/240v electrics and comes complete with reversible screwdrivers that have a range of Torque options from 0.29Nm up to 25Nm.

There are 11 combinations of pantograph arm/drivers/controller boxes to choose from, depending on your specific application/torque requirements.


Alternatively, if you’d like a wider torque range from a single machine, we can offer the Tappex Flexi-arm.

This is a pneumatic screwdriver, available with manual or auto-reverse function.

The pneumatic machine is supplied with a clutch assembly and 3 springs, which gives the torque output ranges following…

  • The manual reverse machine offers a torque range of approx. 0.6-14Nm.
  • The auto reverse machine offers a torque range of approx. 0.6-7.5Nm.

Tappex also manufacture (in-house) a range of production drivers to suit the electric or pneumatic machines. Click here for further details
