HellermannTyton has launched its latest cable tie tensioning tool for customers working across the rail and manufacturing industries.

The new EVO9i cable tie gun is said to cut ties from 4.6mm to 13.5mm wide and carries a profile that enables it to pass through wires without catching. In addition, an extended nose can tension and cut 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 TLC functionality, eliminating tool kick-back, reducing stress and strain on the operator’s hand.

The EVO9i is a base tool that is also available in a HT (High Tension) model that creates tension up to 516N, and an SP model that performs at the same levels as the EVO9i but is designed for smaller hand spans. The tension is controlled with a knob, providing 33 settings to fine-tune and tailor the performance to any application.

Graeme Morley, product manager for HellermannTyton, said: “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 transfer any spares. The EVO9i family comes with a 12-month warranty.
