By Marta Macedo Tuesday, 14th June 2022 0 Comments Hilti launches game-changing battery platform If every day you’re on site you find yourself thinking that constantly having to switch between different batteries and adaptors for all your different tools is a complete waste of time that is simply holding your business back, then you can wave goodbye to all that frustration because Nuron is coming to change the game for everyone. Hilti Group, an innovator of tools, technology, software and services to the commercial construction industry, has announced the launch of a new innovation that provides customers with a fully-connected experience like never before: Nuron, a 22V cordless battery platform that works on a multitude of different tools. Nuron introduces state-of-the-art technology to reinvent how construction professionals work daily on jobsites, tackle health and safety challenges, and manage their businesses, giving them the power and confidence to be safer, smarter, and more efficient. Connectivity is at the core of the platform, making it part of every tool, battery, and charger now and well into the future. With the unveiling of Nuron, the brand affirms its commitment to innovation and strengthens its legacy as a leading provider of productivity solutions. Nuron is a single 22V battery platform that enables cordless tools on all kinds of jobs, from light-duty drilling to heavy-duty concrete breaking. Launching with more than 60 tools, the battery platform enables heavy-duty applications that were once restricted to corded, gas-powered or higher voltage battery systems. With all the battery packs and chargers working interchangeably under a single ecosystem to help reduce complexity for tool cribs and cost for business, gone are the days when jackhammers, angle grinders, and large combi-hammers had to be corded. The redesigned battery interface ensures higher performance and longer operating times by allowing a significantly higher power transfer, helping customers meet tight deadlines. But that’s not all: Nuron was designed to help you work both fast and smarter and, with intelligence at the very core of the platform, its capacity for data storage allows you to better understand the needs of your business. You may be thinking, though, that, sure, it all sounds very nice, but just how does it work? Well, it really couldn’t be simpler: all tools generate data while in use which is then stored on the Nuron batteries and sent securely to the cloud during every charge, without the operator having to do anything to get the process started. The data collected includes information such as length of tool usage, the tool’s primary utilization, charging location and state of health of the battery. This information can then be used to alert individuals if action is needed immediately or can be accessed on-demand as required, available on both mobile and desktop via Hilti’s ON!Track software platform. Together with services like Hilti Fleet Management, this tool data can be used to reduce downtime and optimize tool cribs to boost customer productivity. With a new, robust fiberglass-reinforced housing and external shock-absorbing bumpers which provide extra protection even in the toughest conditions, the completely reengineered Nuron batteries are more durable than ever. To add to that, the electronics are fully sealed to protect against moisture, dust and other jobsite contaminants. Hilti’s Dust Removal Systems (DRS) is available for all Nuron tools while Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) comes as standard. The Active Torque Control (ATC), another key safety feature, is now available with many more tools in the new Nuron product range. Hilti has also worked with construction professionals to develop two new technologies for increased safety with angle grinders. The new 3D ATC system the company’s developed switches off the tool and activates the disc brake when there is sudden, uncontrolled movement in any direction. The same risk reducing function comes with the new SensTech system, which senses when the operator’s hand is removed and immediately engages the electric brake. It may sound simple but when you think about it on a practical level, like when a tool is accidently dropped, it really does make all the difference. Additionally, each Nuron tool has a recommended tethering method and the company offers an ANSI compliant tethering system to help avoid falling objects when working at heights. Though Hilti has already begun rolling out their newest product on the North American market, Nuron is only hitting the UK market in August this year. For the launch, Hilti have planned an event for press and key customers at the Manchester Convention Complex, with panel discussions and product demos programmed to introduce Nuron into the British construction market. Here at TOOLKiT we can’t wait for this indispensable piece of kit to make its way onto British shelves. What do you think of Nuron? Already got a pre-order in?
