Benefits of a Battery Swager

Hand swagers are great swaging tools when you are looking for a reliable, economical solution. However, sometimes you may just want simple and that’s where battery swagers come in! Battery swagers often save you more time and effort to complete tasks around the job site, combining the capability of multiple hand swaging tools in one. 

When deciding whether it is worth investing in a battery swager, it is important to understand the benefits. What extra investment goes into the purchase comes back in efficiency and results. So, why choose a battery swager over a hand swaging tool? Here is a compact list of a few key benefits that having a battery swager presents.

Physical Exertion

One drawback from using a hand swager is the physical effort required for crimping. Instead of repeated use of force which can be extremely tiring, a battery swager uses a motorized crimping action, limiting physical strain.  

Time and Efficiency

Using a battery swager doesn’t just save energy, it saves time. Crimping speeds with a battery swager are much faster than a hand swager, increasing productivity. With repetitive use, hand crimping can also become a slow process because of fatigue.  

Consistency and Precision

Whenever you are using a tool that requires manual use like a hand swager, there is a risk of less precise work. The uniform motorized crimping action in a battery swager ensures more precise work with each use.  

Multiple Tools in One

Having the Locoloc® SL-7NDK-SB battery swager doesn’t just replace one hand swager, it replaces multiple tools. Available for purchase with this product is multiple dies which allow the ability to swage four different sizes. Rather than hauling multiple tools to different sites for work, replace it with the versatile Locoloc® SL-7NDK-SB to bring a new efficiency and convenience to crimping jobs. 

Accessories on the Locoloc® SL-7NDK-SB battery swager:

At Loos Seismic Bracing, we understand that when buying a battery-operated swaging tool, you will need to have more than just the tool, which is why we include numerous accessories with your purchase.
