Panasonic EYFGA Series


Panasonic's New EYFGA Series of Precision Cordless Clutch Tools take clutch tools to a new level.  Designed for production, the EYFGA Series is not only repeatable and accurate, but also capable of detecting cross threads, rehits and is designed for exceptional durability.

Panasonic's New EYFGA Series of Precision Cordless Clutch Tools are intelligent, ergonomic, repeatable and accurate.  The tool design incorporates a comfortable grip, weight balanced with minimal torque reaction weighing less than 3 lbs.  The fast acting clutch and a photo interrupter (non-contact switch) shuts off the tool immediately giving the tool its accuracy and repeatability. The optional downshift feature can increase accuracy by slowing the tool down just before final torque.  Other programmable features include adjustable rundown speeds, cross thread reduction, cross thread / rehit detection, and programmable maintenance intervals.  The possibilities for this energy efficient tool make it ideal for any manufacturing assembly process.

Operator Ergonomics

The importance of ergonomics on the factory floor continues to grow which is one reason why Panasonic developed this line of cordless assembly tools.  The light weight balanced design, cushioned grip and minimal torque reaction, helps to reduce operator fatigue; therefore, creating a better work environment.  

Intelligent Shut-Off and Under Torque Prevention

Over torqueing, under torqueing and operator influenced torques are recurring issues in assembly. Panasonic's clutch tool alleviates those issues with an intelligent auto shut-off and fast acting clutch.  To prevent loose or under torqued fasteners, a photo interrupter is activated and shuts off the tool immediately.  If the tool shuts off before the clutch photo interrupter is activated the tool will light the NOK signal.

As the operator runs the tool, a CPU monitors the battery level at all times.  When the battery no longer has enough power to reach the required torque the CPU automatically shuts down the tool to prevent under torqued fasteners.

Advanced Strategies

Panasonic's clutch tools are far from basic; in fact they are very smart and pose several programmable features such as the tools rundown speed, rehit prevention (double hit), cross thread reduction, downshift, minimum runtime and a maintenance interval alarm feature.  When enabled, these features can assist in improving the overall quality of your product.

Quick and Easy Tool Programming / Operator Lockout

To safeguard tool settings, a clutch adjustment tool is needed for changing the torque.  The tool can only be programmed by a remote control which eliminates operators from tampering with the tools settings. The easy-to-use remote control can be used to change tool settings; speed, rehit prevention (double hit), cross thread reduction, downshift, minimum runtime, maintenance interval alarm, buzzer, obtain the model number and restore the tool to factory defaults.

Reduced Maintenance Cost

Panasonic has increased the life of their tools by using a high efficiency brushless motor, hybrid trigger switch and an accurate robust clutch.  The hybrid switch allows the high current draw of the motor and brake to be controlled by a separate circuit bypassing the switch all together. In addition, the robust clutch design was engineered for a million cycles.  Utilizing the best components, Panasonic tools reduce downtime, parts costs and maintenance repair costs.

Safety & Product Damage Prevention

Manufacturers are finding that operators are injuring themselves by tripping over air hoses and electric tool cables.  Switching to Panasonic cordless assembly tools eliminates the safety hazards of air hoses and electric tool cables.
An advantage of using cordless power tools is that they allow you to eliminate air hose and tool cable damage since they can be very abrasive when moved across a finished surface.  Panasonic Cordless Tools reduce rework cost and lost production time by eliminating hoses and cords.

Operator Visual Indicator

Reduce the overall assembly process time with production tools.  Panasonic Assembly Tools automatically shut-off and instantly provide the operator a visual for OK / NOK status indicating the fastening process is complete.  The highly visible OK/NOK light can be seen from the rear of the tool.

Reduced Energy Costs

Manufacturers are quickly realizing that compressed air is expensive and are looking for alternate options.  Cordless tools offer that option and can save up to 95% in electrical cost compared to traditional air tools.

Illuminating the Work Area

When activated a built-in front LED light turns on to illuminate the assembly area.  The LED light promotes visibility improving screw and bit placement therefore reducing cycle time.  The LED can be programmed to turn on/off with the trigger, or with the convenient switch on the control panel depending on the operator's preference.  An additional feature of the tool to conserve battery power is an auto shut-off timer for the LED once the tool is not operated for 5 minutes.
