It is essential to have the right tools and machines for installation of wires and cable. This is because cable installation is a task that needs to be done very carefully. If proper measures are not taken, it can become critical. There are various categories of machines and tools that are used for the purpose of installing that includes cables pulling, safety and push down tools and so on.
Following are some types of pushdown tools that are often used for cable installation:
1. Manual Tools
For this kind of tools, manpower is required for generating or producing force. When using these tools, the user has to manually press down the conductor.
2. Impact Tool
On the other hand impact tool is used by the installer only. This tool comes with spring-loaded head and requires very little power and the conductor is pressed down by the installer. When the spring touches the conductor it releases itself automatically and the pressure is transferred to the spring head. This is how it sets the conductor. The main advantage of using an impact tool is it is easy to use, provides with consistent results and finishes the project in lesser time.
This advanced technique requires a minimum amount of manual power hence no hand fatigue. It also consists of built-in blades that are designed to stop working as soon as the work is done. You will need cable drum roller stands for cabling so that there are no twists and turns in cables. It also helps in improving performance and takes lesser time.
These tools are some basic necessities for installing cables.
