Ingersoll Rand (Davidson, NC) has released the INSIGHT Connect mobile app to enhance the simplicity and flexibility of interfacing with Ingersoll Rand QX Series cordless assembly tools. Now, instead of being tethered to a desktop to program or adjust the settings on tools, operators can use the INSIGHT Connect app to set and edit basic torque & angle control fastening strategies on all QX Series tools. The INSIGHT Connect app programs Ingersoll Rand QXC, QXM, QXN and QXX fastening tools without the need for additional technical training, special software, plant network permissions or a laptop computer. Working from a smartphone or tablet, operators can use the app to quickly set up one basic torque and angle control strategy, clone settings from one tool to another, and review cycle and audit logs. Other benefits include:
- The capability for the INSIGHT Connect app to operate offline, so it can function in large facilities where network access may be a problem, mitigating downtime in manufacturing settings where productivity is essential.
- The INSIGHT Connect Back-up & Restore feature, where operators can back-up all the settings of the tool in the app. When needed the user can restore these settings to a new tool and be online in less than 60 seconds. Operators can also use the app to retrieve cycle data from a tool for analysis.
The INSIGHT Connect app is free to download now in the Google Play store. Visit the INSIGHT Connect app page for updates: www.irtools.com/insightconnect.
