ATC/AVR Technology

Innovative technologies designed to help ensure jobsite safety and compliance

Integrating Active Torque Control (ATC) and Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) technology helps reduce common safety hazards while increasing productivity on the jobsite. Leverage our innovative technology to keep you and your crew safer with ATC and more comfortable with AVR.

Active Torque Control (ATC)

Reduce kickback and safety hazards

Specialized sensors paired with a motor brake system help reduce kickback, stopping the tool body from spinning uncontrollably, if a drill bit jams on any hidden materials.

Active Vibration Reduction (AVR)

Minimize exposure to tool vibration

In the construction industry, workers are unavoidably exposed to some vibration when they drill, chisel, break or grind materials. However, you can calculate, manage and minimize power tool vibration, to help keep your crew more comfortable and productive.

Sub-chassis systems

Feature in tools such as the TE 1000-AVR breaker, where the motor is isolated from the external housing through a suspension system, absorbing vibration that would otherwise pass directly to the user.

Vibration absorbers

Counterweights oscillate to counteract vibration in hammer drills such as the TE 50-AVR, reducing the vibration which reaches the operator's hands.

Decoupled handles

Separate the vibrating section of the tool from the user in hammer drills such as the TE 60-ATC-AVR, which also features a built-in vibration absorber.
