Transmission and distrubution

Faster and safer solutions for the electric power T&D industry

Increased global demand for electricity demands the rapid creation of transmission and distribution (T&D) infrastructure, plus efficient maintenance of existing networks. Safety, efficiency and reliability are the key requirements of effective T&D work, making our integrated systems a smart choice. Our solutions range from powerful and portable cable-cutting, crimping and metal cutting tools, through to type-approved anchoring solutions – all backed up with powerful design software, global support and expertise.

Cable cutting and crimping

Safer, lighter cordless tools to speed up your workflows

Cable cutting and crimping can be tough, repetitive work. Cumbersome press tools can not only be slow to use, but also require bodily strain to operate – increasing the risk of repetitive strain injuries in the shoulders. However, our cordless cutters and crimpers are lighter, safer and quicker than heavier alternatives, making it simple to carry power into the field. Highly reliable, these tools also come with a guaranteed 3-day repair and return time, significantly reducing the risk of downtime.

Bolting electrical connections

Solutions for faster, more efficient fastening of lugs, splices and taps

On T&D networks, electrical connections such as lugs, splices and taps need to be fastened securely. We help make this work quicker and more efficient with a range of compact, cordless impact wrenches and drivers – which you can use in conjunction with fasteners that have type approval for your applications. These reliable tools offer a premium level of safety, thanks to there being no counter-torque for the operator to manage. Subject to our 3-day replace and return guarantee, they keep you productive in the field for longer.

Drilling in wood and metal

High performance drilling tools with advanced safety features

T&D projects frequently require drilling into wood and metal. Our SF range of drill drivers helps make this work both fast and safe. These high-performance tools offer exceptional performance and efficiency, coupled with Active Torque Control – which helps significantly improve safety by bringing a jammed drill to an immediate halt. We also offer a range of drill bits, tested and approved for use in both wood or different types of metal.

Fasteners for all applications

Solutions for equipment, pole and lattice tower assembly

Our range of fasteners includes type-approved solutions with a proven track record in equipment, pole and lattice tower assembly. Hilti PROFIS software for anchor design and selection helps you easily find the right fastener for your applications. Installation is also made safer and quicker thanks to cordless impact wrenches and drivers, featuring best-in-class Active Torque Control, automatic fastener selection and 22V batteries that are interchangeable with other Hilti tools.

Metal cutting and rough grinding

Powerful cordless angle grinders and reciprocating saws

T&D involves heavy-duty work. From cutting off broken bolts through to removing damaged equipment and making the jobsite safe, metal cutting and rough grinding are daily tasks. We help make this work faster, safer and more agile with cordless angle grinders and reciprocating saws that all run on our 22V battery platform and also feature Active Torque Control (ATC) which safely cuts power if they jam or bind.

Fastening equipment to concrete

Chemical and mechanical anchors with a range of relevant approvals

For fastening equipment to concrete, we are your full anchoring solutions provider, providing a broad range of mechanical and chemical post-installed anchors, all with relevant approvals for fastening to concrete in different situations. We make anchor layout and installation faster, safer and simpler, thanks to measuring tools and virtually dustless drilling with powerful rotary hammers or diamond core drills for cutting through rebar. In addition, PROFIS anchor design software help you select the right solution for your applications – giving you peace of mind.
