With a redesigned pneumatic drive, the LRC 20 from SUHNER now offers a set of hand tools that can grind, mill and polish places that previously could be accessed only with great difficulty, for example, the leading edges and corners of impellers or the insides of narrow pipes. This new drive unit offers users a variety of benefits in production, maintenance and general shop operations.
The new drive LRC 20 provides 20,000 rpm for user handwork. At the same time, it is extremely slender and maneuverable and fulfils all safety, ergonomic and energy efficiency requirements in industry. And it is very quiet. Even under full load, the sound pressure level is only 69.5 dB. A centrifugal governor regulates the speed to such precision that it saves an average of 20% of the compressed air needed for conventional air tool technologies. The exhaust air is directed backwards, protecting the work surface from lubricating oil and reducing noise levels even further.
The system is offered by Suhner with matching extensions that can be attached to the machine for each application. Only 13 mm in diameter, the extension elements are very thin. They are powered by a long-life flexible shaft. The user can choose from 125, 250, 500, 1000 and 1500 mm lengths. With a handle, the extension elements can be fitted to the directly onto the LRC 20 drive unit.
The special highlight: the extension elements are unique in that they can be bent through 45° and so can really reach the deep pockets and corners on workpieces.
