Cordless, Rechargeable Power Tool Features Industry-First Revolutionary Torque Up To 100Nm and High Capacity Battery Pack

SECAUCUS, NJ (Aug. 10, 2011) – Continuing its commitment to providing the safest, most efficient and ergonomically designed power tools, Panasonic today announced the introduction of a new cordless 14.4V Cordless shut-off tool (EYFMA1P) for general assembly and large machinery manufacturers. The latest addition to the Panasonic family of professional assembly tools, the EYFMA1P 14.4V Cordless shut-off tool offers improved efficiency, through enhanced torque control. The innovative power tool reaches torques up to 100Nm with no kickback, a first in the industry.  It will be available in September via select Panasonic Assembly tool dealers

Weighing just 3.3 pounds, the new Cordless shut-off tool  incorporates a high capacity 14.4V 3.3Ah Li-ion battery pack and offers the durability of a brushless motor and hybrid switch.  The  EYFMA1P allows a facility to lower their carbon footprint by  reducing the number of air tools in operation.

Features include:

  • Tightening Confirmation Lamp that provides precise information – green light indicates tightening is finished; red light – tightening not complete.
  • Quality control by data transmission system
  • Torque control with torque adjustments and low battery shut down
  • Retightening prevention function
  • Durability with brushless motor and hybrid switch

“The introduction of the new Cordless shut-off tool maintains Panasonic’s dedication to producing power tools that meet very stringent, high standards of excellent performance,” said John Olson, Panasonic’s Industrial Sales Manager. “Safety for the worker, ease of use and high productivity has always been Panasonic’s priorities and the new Cordless shut-off tool, like the recently introduced high-torque assembly tools, meets those established standards. This unique power tool is ideally suited for general assembly and large machinery manufacturers.”
