The EVO KR tool makes it quicker and easier to apply KR ties. The redesign is based on the company’s tried-and-trusted EVO range of ergonomic manual cable tie guns for conventional plastic cable ties.
The design of the EVO KR makes it possible to tension, lock and cut KR ties in two steps, using just one hand. No threading is involved. The looped tie end is simply inserted sideways into the tool. Combined with the light, yet robust reinforced plastic housing, these ergonomic features maximise both timesaving and operator comfort.
"The tension force can be adjusted for consistent results to specific bundling requirements", said Jasmina Prill, Tool Systems Product Manager at HellermannTyton in the EMEA region. "This is a great benefit because it eliminates inconsistent results from operator to operator and the risk of overtightening on bundles. That accuracy and the robustness of the ties is especially important for our customers in the automotive, railway and renewable energy industries."

KR-Series cable ties are distinguished by their smooth strap and unique locking mechanism. They have a very high tensile strength of 785 N. Due to its special design, KR-Series cable ties can be used to safely bundle heavy cables or to secure bellows on steering racks, fluid hoses or vacuum lines. The EVO KR tool punches a glass-fibre pin in the head of the tie into the smooth strap to secure it firmly in place. This is extremely resistant to the effects of vibration over time and cannot be opened by accident.
