Hilti rolls out Nuron cordless battery platform with over 60 new tools

Hilti introduces Nuron, a 22V cordless battery platform the company said will enable cordless tools on all kinds of jobs.
“Now our customers can work construction sites fully cordless without compromising performance or health and safety. With our new platform, we have overcome a lot of complexity and streamlined tool cribs,” explains Tassilo Deinzer, head of the Power Tools & Accessories Business Unit at Hilti.
Nuron is a single 22V battery platform that enables cordless tools on all kinds of jobs, from light-duty drilling to heavy-duty concrete breaking. Launching with more than 60 tools, the battery platform enables heavy-duty applications that were once restricted to corded, gas-powered or higher voltage battery systems.
All the battery packs and chargers work interchangeably under a single ecosystem to help reduce complexity for tool cribs and cost for business.
The redesigned battery interface ensures higher performance and longer operating times by allowing a significantly higher power transfer, helping customers meet tight deadlines.
Nuron brings intelligence to the core of the platform – all tools generate data which is then stored on the Nuron batteries and sent securely to the cloud during every charge without any operator interaction.
The data collected includes information such as tool usage, tool utilization, charging location and battery state-of-health. This information can then be used to alert individuals if action is needed immediately or can be accessed on-demand as required and is available on mobile and desktop via Hilti’s ON!Track software platform.
When used with services like Hilti Fleet Management, tool data can be used to reduce downtime and optimize tool cribs to boost customer productivity, the company said.
“With a strong focus on operator health and safety, we’ve achieved a wider range of cordless tools that offer our advanced features that make work safer and better protect teams on today’s jobsites,” said Deinzer. “Furthermore, all Nuron tools have been newly developed or extensively redesigned to achieve optimal performance-to-weight ratio and ergonomics.”
The completely reengineered Nuron batteries are more durable including a new, robust fiberglass-reinforced housing and external shock-absorbing bumpers which provide extra protection even in the toughest conditions. And, the electronics are fully sealed to protect against moisture, dust and other job site contaminants.
Hilti’s Dust Removal Systems (DRS) is available for all Nuron tools while Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) comes as standard. The Active Torque Control (ATC), another key safety feature, is now available with many more tools in the new Nuron product range.
Nuron products are currently on sale to U.S. and Canadian customers, with shipments beginning in March. The global rollout will continue through 2022.
