Newly launched installation and extraction kits 15 October 2021

Sykes-Pickavant Ltd has added two new threaded stud extractors to its industrial range, in response to the ever changing advances within the automotive and industrial sectors.

Removal of tapped dowels can often prove tricky and invite potential damage if carried out incorrectly or without the right tools. The two new threaded stud extractors are designed to remove tapped dowels from their location holes, whether they are damaged or complete, allowing undamaged dowels to be used again.

The slide hammer design provides 1kg of pulling force to make extraction quick and easy. Both kits feature a selection of adaptors: Part number 09590000 includes adaptors from M4 – M10 and 09595000 adaptors from M6 – M20 for a wide range of applications.

For a collet style removal option, the new 6mm – 16mm dowel pin puller set includes six tapered collets, which thread onto the stud, even where only a few threads are exposed. The collet is drawn into the housing and clamped onto the stud by tightening the housing bolt.

The process reduces possibility of damage to stud threads, preventing shearing or damaging studs and workpiece whilst avoiding bottoming or shouldering studs. This set includes collets in 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm and 16mm.
