Application Tooling

Cable tie guns: Manual or automatic cable tie guns for your applications!

With cable tie guns from HellermannTyton you hold all the advantages.

Automatic cable tie gun (bundling system) ATS3080Assembly and installation tasks are becoming ever more complicated, which is why specialised cable tie guns are becoming increasingly important. No matter whether manual cable tie guns or automatic cable tie guns are involved, from the cable tie gun through hot-air guns to bundling systems, these cable tie guns have to fulfil quite specific tasks, which they also – depending on the production environment – have to fulfil under quite specific conditions.

For instance, a cable tie gun must even have to be usable in areas which are hard to reach, while other cable tie guns have to be able to operate during field operations without any access to electricity. To this are added the demands of modern serial production, meaning that, for example, attention already has to be paid while developing cable tie guns to ensuring that during long-term use, the operation of the cable tie gun is reliable and does not place excessive demands on the user.

HellermannTyton provides over 60,000 solutions covering all aspects of cables – and as a logical outcome, the company also develops and sells optimum, user-friendly application tools, which make carrying out assembly jobs as simple and efficient as possible using HellermannTyton products. The range of application tools on offer stretches from gas-operated hot-air guns through manual and pneumatic cable tie guns to fully automatic cable tie guns for industrial serial production. All cable tie guns from HellermannTyton are subjected to strict tests and are tested for as long as it takes until every single cable tie gun meets the highest quality demands.
Application of hot air gun E4500The user can, however, not just rely on the quality of the cable tie guns on offer. Whenever sector-specific reasons require it, HellermannTyton also provides support during the installation and use-testing of its cable tie guns on site. In this way, if a cable tie gun should ever not fulfil the exceptional requirements of a customer, then any adjustments which might be required can be undertaken immediately under close joint agreement or new cable tie guns can even be developed. So as to be able to provide this service, the world-wide development sites of HellermannTyton have facilities for developing, modifying and testing cable tie guns, ranging from the smallest cable tie gun right up to automatic bundling systems.

By choosing cable tie guns from HellermannTyton, series production managers, technicians, installers and users are deciding in favour of quality, effectiveness and productivity. Or, to put it another way – for advantages you can feel!

Cable tie gun MK7P up to 4.8mm strap width

The MK7P pneumatic cable tie gun sets a new benchmark for the rational application of ties in the industrial production process. Enhanced technology significantly improves the application of cable ties.

Improved compressed air supply moves the tensioning piston faster than in comparable tools. Processing time is shortened and the volume of connecting ties applied is increased. At a time when cost implications are crucial this tool offers genuine potential for rationalisation.

Great attention was paid to ergonomic design in the development of this cable tie gun. The moulded handle prevents any slippage and eliminates operator fatigue. The housing of the cable tie gun is made of glass fibre reinforced plastic, which is a lightweight but very tough material that fully meets the high requirements found in industry today.

Applying the cable ties is remarkably easy: press the button and the cable tie is tensioned and then automatically cut off flush with the head. The smooth edge of the cut prevents injuries.
The cut off end of the tie is ejected automatically. Production breaks normally required to the cut off ties are thus eliminated.

The three level preset control is used to set the tool tension. Fine adjustment is then made with the wheel below the tension control. An optionally available safety cap prevents the tension setting being changed by accident. This is particularly important when bundling sensitive materials and represents an important aspect in maintaining process reliability.

This cable tie gun features a non slip, comfortable grip, soft touch trigger, and a one touch tensioning/cut off capability. The MK7P cable tie gun is very lightweight making it very easy for the operator to use on all cable ties from 2.5mm to 4.8mm wide.

The MK7P pneumatic cable tie gun sets a new benchmark for the rational application of ties in the industrial production process. Improved compressed air supply moves the tensioning piston faster than in comparable tools.

For automatic installation of cable ties up to 13.5mm wide we recommend the application tool MK9P.
