Hilti pave the way to a new era of power and performance

Hilti’s game-changing cordless battery platform, Nuron, boosts productivity and improves health and safety on site

Nuron – the brainchild of Hilti that launched in the UK in October 2022 – is a revolutionary 22V cordless battery platform that hosts more than 70 tools on just one platform, providing the construction industry with a multitude of benefits from improved health and safety to productivity gains.

So how exactly will Nuron benefit construction companies and tradespeople throughout the UK?

All on one platform: performance without complexity

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. This means that heavy-duty applications that were once restricted to corded, gas-powered or higher voltage battery systems can now join the 22V cordless platform – a development that’s game-changing for the industry. All the battery packs and chargers work interchangeably under a single ecosystem to help reduce complexity for tool cribs and costs for businesses.

The redesigned battery interface ensures higher performance and longer operating times by allowing a significantly higher power transfer – helping their customers to meet tight deadlines.

Connected to the cloud for increased productivity

Nuron brings intelligence to the core of the platform – all tools generate data which is then stored on the batteries and sent securely to the cloud during every charge without any operator interaction. The data collected includes information such as tool usage, tool utilisation, 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 on mobile and desktop via Hilti’s ON!Track software platform. Together with services like Hilti Fleet Management, tool data can be used to reduce downtime and optimise tool cribs to boost customer productivity.

New technology to improve health & safety

With a strong focus on operator health and safety, Nuron gives customers a wider range of cordless tools that boast Hilti’s advanced safety features – which in turn will help construction businesses protect their employees. For example, Hilti’s Dust Removal Systems (DRS) are available for all Nuron tools, while Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) comes as standard. Active Torque Control (ATC), another key safety feature, is now available with many more tools in the Nuron product range.

All Nuron tools have also been newly developed or extensively redesigned to achieve optimal performance-to-weight ratio and ergonomics. The completely reengineered Nuron batteries are much more durable, including a new reinforced fiberglass housing and external shock-absorbing bumpers which provide extra protection – even in the toughest conditions. The electronics are fully sealed to protect against moisture, dust and other jobsite contaminants too.

Who are Hilti?

Founded in 1941 in Schaan, Liechtenstein, Hilti are a global tool manufacturer based in over 120 countries – offering their customers technologically leading products, systems, software and services. They have a long history of innovation, which includes developing and producing their own products to make working on jobsites safer, faster and easier. Hilti also invest approximately 6% of their sales each year into research and development, taking product improvement ideas directly from their customers via their direct sales model.

In fact, Nuron is yet another product innovation that was developed in response to listening to their customers’ needs and finding a solution to their problems. Sebastiaan Groenhuijsen, Head of Product Marketing for Northern Europe at Hilti, said:

“From customer feedback on what kind of innovations they would find useful, we know this will make a huge difference to their operations in many ways. We are proud to deliver the most comprehensive solutions to solving some of the bottlenecks of construction sites today – increasing productiveness, introducing state-of-the-art data-driven solutions and improving health and safety.”

Since the platform launched late last year, many construction companies have already converted their full tool park to Nuron – including Daval who chose the popular route of leasing the tools via Hilti Fleet Management. But it’s not just big businesses that have benefited – independent tradespeople can enjoy the same benefits by individually purchasing the tools, either via a Hilti store or on the Hilti website.
