Press report: CAS battery system

Two are better than one: Fastening specialist PREBENA combines compressed air with the powerful battery technology of the CAS battery system. This is proven by the latest addition to the Cordless Alliance System (CAS): The fastening specialist and manufacturer of compressed air tools PREBENA is now a CAS partner and brings four cordless nailers and a cordless compressor to the manufacturer-independent cordless system. PRE stands for compressed air, BENA for nailing technology: the name is the name of the fastening specialist from the Hessian Schotten range. PREBENA is best known for its powerful compressed air devices. Now the company is also relying on batteries and becomes part of the Cordless Alliance System (CAS), a manufacturer-independent battery system initiated by the power tool manufacturer Metabo. With CAS, PREBENA brings its first cordless products onto the market, four models of the cordless nailer PKT-HYBRID and the cordless compressor VITAS 100-AKKU. With the patented cartridge nailer system PKT, short for PREBENA cartridge technology, the company already had a mobile cartridge system based on compressed air in its portfolio, which the company is now combining with the powerful CAS battery technology. “Compressed air devices still make up the majority of our products,” says Werner Rücklinger, Managing Director of PREBENA. “Nevertheless, we see the future of mobile working in battery technology. We want to offer our customers both technologies – and that’s why we decided on the new PKT-HYBRID line. And thanks to a manufacturer-independent battery system such as CAS, our users can now also use other machines and devices that they need in their everyday work beyond fasteners the perfect addition to the PREBENA range, says Rücklinger. “Let’s take a roofer: For fastening work such as removing the substructure and support brackets, he uses a cordless rotary hammer from Metabo. He cuts the roof battens with a cordless plunge-cut saw from Mafell and then attaches them with a cordless nailer from PREBENA. ”Hit and sunk The new PKT-HYBRID cordless nailers from PREBENA are initially available in four versions: The two round head and two half-head strip nailers with either a short or long magazine process magazined round or half-head nails up to 100 millimeters in length. They can be used in a variety of ways – except for roofing, for example in the pallet and prefabricated house industry or in interior construction. “Thanks to the combination of the tried and tested PKT cartridge system and a powerful 18 volt battery pack with a capacity of 5.5 ampere hours, the devices have enormous shooting power,” explains Rücklinger. A PKT-HYBRID cordless nailer drives 65 to 100 millimeter long nails with a shaft diameter of 2.8 to 3.4 millimeters into hardwood at 1.5 shots per second. Touch display, empty shot protection, depth adjustment, belt hook and a tool-free removable magazine are part of the standard equipment of the cordless nailers. With a hose but without a cable, the other product innovation from Schotten promises compressed air for on the go: the light and compact VITAS 100-AKKU 18-volt cordless compressor with brushless motor and a maximum pressure of eight bar is the perfect companion on the construction site or in the workshop. With a weight of around ten kilograms and a size of 330x310x390 millimeters, it is easy to transport and, with its rubber feet, is secure at all times. In combination with the PREBENA compressed air tools, the oil-free piston compressor is ideal for work in interior construction, woodworking and in the sanitary area. Pressure gauges for tank and outlet pressure and a universal coupling for all common connection systems guarantee easy operation. Fastening expertise for CAS PREBENA, founded in 1960, looks back on almost 60 years of experience in fastening technology. Both the compressed air devices and production systems for the production of staples, magazined nails and screws are developed by PREBENA itself. CAS also benefits from the great variety of products and expertise in fastening technology. “With PREBENA we are gaining a strong partner in the woodworking sector. The cordless nailer in particular is a product that we have been missing at CAS so far and that ideally complements the mobile freedom for woodworkers, ”says Thomas Zeller, head of the CAS partner program at Metabo. That makes CAS even more attractive for carpenters and roofers. “And with the growing number of CAS partners and the expansion of the CAS range, our trading partners can increasingly position themselves as system dealers for their customers. One battery for everything – and everything from a single source. “” With PREBENA we are gaining a strong partner in the woodworking sector, “says CAS program manager Thomas Zeller. The new PKT-HYBRID cordless nailers are initially available in four versions and process magazined round or half-headed nails up to 100 millimeters in length. About CAS The Cordless Alliance System (CAS) is a manufacturer-independent battery system initiated by the Nürtingen-based power tool manufacturer Metabo. CAS was launched in summer 2018 with nine power tool and machine manufacturers from different areas. The companies Metabo, Rothenberger, Mafell, Eisenblätter, Collomix, Haaga, Electrostar (Starmix), Eibenstock, Steinel, Rokamat, Elried / edding, Birchmeier, fischer and Prebena are currently part of CAS. Within this battery system, which is unique in the industry, all machines from the CAS partners are one hundred percent compatible with a battery and can be combined as required. On the basis of the powerful Metabo LiHD battery technology, CAS brings together a wide variety of trades under one roof and thus offers professional users the freedom to work with standard and special products from various manufacturers in a mobile and flexible manner far away from the socket.
