NAVAC, a supplier of HVAC vacuum pumps in addition to a wide array of tools, gauges, charging machines, recovery units and other industry-specific items, has introduced the industry’s lightest cordless flaring tool. Weighing less than three pounds, the new Model NEF6LMPower Flaring Tool produces precise, automatic flares in a fraction of the time compared to traditional flaring methods.
NAVAC’s new cordless flaring solution makes flaring faster and far simpler without sacrificing accuracy or consistency. Offering easy flare connectivity, it can create flares in five sizes, ranging from ¼” to ¾”. Designed to perform reliably in harsh environments, the NEF6LM Cordless Power Flaring Tool also offers quick-connect functionality.
Featuring easy, one-button operation and a luminous LED flashlight, the NEF6LM Cordless Flaring Tool can complete a flare in just 15 seconds and can make over 100 flares per charge. Charging itself also is exceptionally fast, as the device is fully charged in just 30 minutes. The cost-effective device is one third less expensive than its predecessor, the NEF6Li cordless flaring tool.
Traditional, manual flaring tools are largely dependent on the individual installer’s expertise, a factor that can lead to inconsistent, often damaged flares. In addition, conventional flaring blocks are cumbersome and require assembly and disassembly. By comparison, the NAVAC NEF6LM Cordless Flaring Tool is far easier to use, with positioning and securing the tube taking mere seconds. From there, all the operator does is press the button to make a flare – also in a matter of seconds.
The ultra-lightweight tool aligns with NAVAC’s goal of meeting HVAC/R industry needs for user-friendly equipment and tools that are less complicated and save time – all crucial to busy technicians charged with conducting efficient yet exacting services.
“When we introduced our original cordless flaring tool two years ago, it addressed the challenge that flaring by conventional means is often laborious, time-consuming, and not always adequate in terms of accuracy,”said Stephen Rutherford, VP of HVAC Tools Business for NAVAC. “At under three pounds, the newest cordless flaring tool is even more convenient, building upon the original’s strongest asset – simplicity – while mirroring its ability to increase speed without sacrificing precision.”
