Running a business, managing jobsites and maintaining tools and equipment are demanding enough, but it's become even more challenging with ongoing supply chain and labor shortages.
Construction professionals are continuously looking for ways to maximize jobsite productivity and performance, streamline equipment management and costs, and reduce downtime and delays. Hilti, a leading manufacturer and provider of construction tools, technology and services, says its latest innovation will help commercial contractors, tradespeople and management alike tackle those challenges.
The company recently launched Nuron, a new all-on-one 22V cordless platform. With its connected battery interface, advanced safety technology and an extensive portfolio of new and enhanced tools, Nuron is setting a new standard of performance, safety and flexibility, impressing industry professionals.
"What I love about the platform is that it's one battery for over 60 tools," says Eric Jopp, power tool expert and founder of Tools in Action. "You can run anything from something small to something big. This is going to help keep everything on the jobsite rolling."
ALL ON ONE PLATFORM
The cornerstone of the Nuron platform is a set of interchangeable 22V batteries that power a new generation of high-performing cordless tools ranging from drill drivers to jackhammers.
Nuron tools and batteries cover light-, medium- and heavy-duty jobs—delivering more power, greater speed and often double the runtime to cordless tools than like platforms on the market, while also reducing costs and complexity.
Operating off a single platform enables the streamlining of procurement while moving away from expensive and hazardous gas and corded power systems for more efficient tool cribs and more productive crews.
Nuron's connected platform and intelligent 22V batteries deliver more tool transparency and aim to equip construction professionals with data like tool usage, performance, location and more to help make more informed decisions and simplify processes. The goal is to keep crews working without interruption, helping to boost jobsite and project performance and productivity.
This innovative, built-in technology further supports tool crib optimization by identifying idle tools so they can be put back to work where they're needed most. Stay informed on tool health with proactive maintenance alerts and check battery health with onboard indicator lights and the press of a button. Nuron's advanced features help ensure crews are always working with high-performing tools and avoiding unnecessary downtime and costly repairs.
Combined with Hilti's world-class Tool Fleet Management and ON!Track tool and equipment tracking services, customers will experience even more features and benefits. Some of these include access to the latest tools at a fixed monthly cost, without the burden of a large upfront investment. Plus, Hilti tool theft protection goes beyond Hilti brand tools and tracks all jobsite tools and equipment as well as enabling digital management of safety certifications, tool maintenance and digital or on-site trainings.
"We've seen an appetite from our customers to leverage digital technology, so we created a fully connected cordless ecosystem that puts collected data to work for them," says Erik Mikysa, senior vice president of marketing for Hilti North America. "This is a true step-change for businesses and it's going to equip them with insights that allow for making better, more informed decisions."
All Nuron tools are tether-ready, and the tools and batteries are designed with improved durability, more built-in safety features and impact protection for the harshest jobsite conditions—protecting customers' crews and investment, while reducing costs and downtime due to breakage, repair or replacement.
With the new portfolio, Hilti has increased the range of tools with its class-leading Active Torque Control (ATC), Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) and Dust Removal System (DRS).
With this launch also comes one of the safest angle grinders on the market with groundbreaking new features like SensTech—a system that detects when the operator's hand is removed and immediately engages the electric brake—and 3D ATC, a system that switches off the tool and activates the disc brake when there is sudden, uncontrolled movement in any direction.
CORDLESS WITHOUT COMPROMISE
Hilti delivers once again with Nuron, reinventing how construction professionals work, tackle health and safety challenges and manage businesses. Construction decision makers no longer have to make compromises to leverage cordless tools, driving their businesses further ahead today and beyond.
