Prewinder Electric 

The Best of Both Worlds... the Prewinder Electric (KPE) tool combines the best features of the air and electric installation tools.The Prewinder Electric tool is the fastest semi-automatic installation system available for our CoilThread® helically coiled screw thread inserts.

Hex Electric

The Hex Electric (KHE) installation tool is designed for medium to high volume users of Tangless® and Tanged bulk packaged CoilThread® inserts. The KHE tool utilises the KATO® 12 electric driver (CT5408), which incorporates a 1/4" Quick-Disconnect keyless chuck system. Operators can quickly and easily change the installation Mandrel Assembly from one thread size to another or between Tangless® CoilThread® and CoilThread® (tanged) inserts.

Round Electric

The Round Electric (KRE) installation tool is designed for medium to high volume users of CoilThread® Tangless® and CoilThread® (Tanged) bulk packaged CoilThread® inserts. The KRE tool utilizes the KATO SB-400C (CT5405) and/or the SB-650C (CT5406) electric driver, depending on the thread size.
