Direct when fastening 01 July 2024

The new fischer setting tool FXC 85 designed for direct installation speeds up and simplifies fastening in concrete, steel and other anchoring materials. The tool is the company’s first completely battery-operated setting tool.

With its setting energy of 85 joules, this powerful tool can precisely place 15,000 fastenings per service interval – thus increasing maintenance efficiency. Powered by the 18V ProCORE battery from the AMPShare Alliance by Bosch, the tool’s power source is compatible with other devices, enables 500 nails to be set per battery charge and is fully recharged within 65 minutes.

Since the device is purely battery-operated, a gas cartridge is not required. This reduces noise during use and customers save costs on consumption and maintenance. Practical features of the FXC 85 include a user interface to intuitively switch the tool on and off, read the status of the battery and setting tool and perform a device reset. The setting depth adjustment lever allows users to quickly and easily adjust the nail setting depth to suit the respective application. The support foot of the FXC 85 provides support but can also be removed when using the device in hard-to-reach and narrow areas. Also the work light perfectly illuminates the work area. 

The user-friendly nail pusher makes it easy to quickly reload new nails – with a release switch for the trigger to increase safety. The practical belt hook allows users to easily carry the device. Additionally, the device works at temperatures from -5°C to +50°C.

The FXC 85 is available in the practical XL-BOXX. This robust case for safe and convenient transport offers space for the setting tool as well as tools, dowels, screws and more. The XL-BOXX is splash-proof, stackable and can be customised with various inserts and accessories. It is also compatible with the fischer L-BOXX.
