New Panduit GTS-E Cable Tie Hand Tool Offers Lowest Industry Handle Force and Impact Shock for Installer Productivity and Safety

February 23, 2016, Tinley Park, IL
Panduit Corp., an industry leader in wire harness, heavy duty cable management, and control panel solutions for over 60 years, announced the launch of its new Panduit GTS-E Cable Tie Hand Tool that offers lowest industry handle force and resulting impact shock to increase productivity and promote worker safety..
 
With a new ergonomic design for comfort and grip, complemented by an industry low handle force that is 15% lower than comparable industry tools, the Panduit GTS-E Cable Tie Hand Tool reduces risk of operator fatigue during repetitive tool use, as well as repetitive motion injuries to hands during cable tie cut off. The improved cable tie cut-off mechanism further increases protection by reducing impact shock to an installer’s hand by more than 40%, a new industry low for comparable industry tools.
 
“Panduit has a long history of working closely with a diverse number of customers and partners in industries from aerospace and rail, to contract manufacturers and harness shops”, said Bob Krisel, VP of Panduit OEM. “Regardless of the tooling application, comfort and safety drive increased productivity. We believe the GTS-E sets a new standard in driving that productivity.”
 
Additional new features include:
• Single, easy-to-read, tension adjustment knob in .5” increments that speeds adjustments and accuracy of tension settings with a   simple pull and twist motion
• Beveled tie entry that allows quick side entry of tie into tool to speed installation
• Long and narrow barrel nose design that improves visibility and access to confined areas
• Lightweight, yet durable design that helps to preserve consistent performance over time, while reducing maintenance and   replacement costs over years of use
