FEIN is introducing 20 new variants of drill/drivers, combi drills and impact machines to its range of cordless tools. The addition coincides with the company expanding its battery platform program, based on batteries with capacities of 4 Ah and 2 Ah with SafetyCell Technology, in 18 V and 14.4 V. FEIN is now offering a wide range of cordless tools for drilling, screwdriving, metalworking, glass removal and oscillating including the FEIN MultiMaster.
FEIN's flagship drill/driver ASCM
There are five models in the new range. The flagship model is the ASCM18 QX which is a 4-speed drill/driver featuring the brushless FEIN PowerDrive motor, which is 30 percent more efficient than comparable DC motors. The motor is compact, virtually wear-free and fully encapsulated to protect against dust ingression. Speeds of 400 to 3850 rpm enable precise and effective drilling. The right speed and torque can be selected for every application thanks to the patent-pending 4-speed arrangement and accelerator, which allows the user to finely adjust the speed. With a maximum torque of 90 Nm, the cordless drill/drivers can handle 10 x 400 mm screws without pre-drilling.
Drill/drivers, combis, impact drivers and combo sets
The new FEIN range also includes 2-speed drill/drivers (FEIN ABS), 2-speed combi drills (FEIN ASB) with engageable impact function and two impact drivers; Â¼" hex impact driver and Â½" square impact wrench (FEIN ASCD). All models are available with 4 Ah or 2 Ah batteries. The benefits of the 2 Ah batteries include a sufficient service life for most applications and, since they are only half the size, they are 250g lighter and considerably cheaper. Both sets are supplied in a plastic tool case with a rapid charger.
SafetyCell Technology from FEIN
The 4 Ah and 2 Ah capacity battery packs were developed in house at FEIN. The battery packs feature FEIN SafetyCell Technology, single cell monitoring and separate communication system. Over the coming months, all FEIN battery packs will change over to 4 Ah and 2 Ah which will be available in 18 V and 14.4 V variants. The new 4 Ah packs have a service life around 30 % longer than FEIN's existing 3 Ah batteries. The 2 Ah batteries have a sufficient service life for most applications, but are only half the size so their weight is reduced considerably.
