HellermannTyton introduces new cable tie tensioning tool

Cable management specialist, HellermannTyton, has launched its latest cable tie tensioning tool.

With improved performance, usability, and safety, the brand-new EVO9i cable tie gun builds on the strengths of the previous EVO9 model to ensure consistent and reliable cable tie tensioning for customers working across automotive, rail and manufacturing industries.

Effortlessly cutting ties from 4.6mm to 13.5mm wide, the EVO9i carries a sleek profile which enables the tool to pass through wires without catching, while an extended nose can easily tension and cut cable ties in confined spaces, even out of sight. The tool also retains many familiar features, such as a lockable switch to prevent accidental changes to the tension setting and HellermannTyton’s patented TLC functionality, eliminating tool kick-back, and reducing stress and strain on the operator’s hand.

The EVO9i is a base tool that is also available in HT (High Tension) and SP (Short Span) models. The former is a high-tension version, creating tension of up to 516N, whilst the SP model performs at the same levels as the EVO9i but is designed for smaller hand spans. The tension is controlled with a user-friendly knob, providing 33 settings to fine-tune and tailor the performance to any application.

Graeme Morley, Product Manager for HellermannTyton, says, “After seven years of service, the EVO9 family is being replaced by the improved EVO9i range. Building on an extensive heritage, this latest generation is our best release yet. The upgraded mechanisms and increased ergonomics through twin-shot mouldings make the EVO7i and EVO9i families market leaders.

“These tools are so intuitive and user-friendly that time savings, safety and quality improvements are guaranteed, even for an operator using it for the first time. Being able to guarantee that every tie is cut flush at the same tension every time is absolutely critical, and these tools are designed to do just that, whilst greatly reducing installation time, and therefore money, for our customers.”

The blades and nose pieces are backwards compatible with the EVO9 family, enabling users to easily transfer any spares they have. Like with the smaller EVO7i, the EVO9i family also comes with a 12-month warranty.
