Welcome to our new edition of First Technology on Cordless Tools, where we share with you information on Cordless tools we have for you. In this edition, we will mention everything about the Chicago Pneumatic CP8345 series. We will tell you a little about our experience in air angle grinders combined with the convenience and mobility of battery power in a grinder with great ergonomics, providing high comfort and improved safety.
But, first let's see the benefits and features of this wireless tool.
Of course, these benefits and characteristics are inherent in this cordless tool, as long as it is used for the applications for which it is designed, with the corresponding accessories and with due maintenance. Otherwise, this cordless tool may result with variations other than those specified.
It is important to know this, because the angle grinder like any industrial tool is designed to be used according to the purpose of use and understanding the design of this angle grinder (the main purpose of this is to grind, cut metals and cut concrete). With the corresponding grinding discs, cutting discs and the appropriate protections (grinding and cutting protection).
Finally, it is important to mention that the wireless angle grinder has been designed for handheld use, it does not require mounting on supports or work benches, and using this product differently than that indicated for the intended use can end up generating important variations, not only in the useful life of the tool but also in the operator.

Specific instructions for the CP8345
For this cordless grinder, we must take into account all its components to maintain its integrity and functionality. And since it is a wireless tool, the first thing to consider is the battery.
To get the best performance from the battery in this tool, we must take into account the following:
- If the tool has not been used for some time, the battery packs should be recharged before use.
- Exposure to temperatures higher than 50 °C or 122 °F reduces the performance of the battery, therefore prolonged and unnecessary exposure to heat or the sun should be avoided as much as possible (protect your wireless equipment whenever they are in disuse)
- Keep the charging and contact points clean, in this way you guarantee optimal use of the batteries, in addition to allowing the blocks to be fully charged.
- Avoid placing bare batteries on cold surfaces while charging and take care to remove the battery packs from the charger once the charge has reached its maximum limit to maximize battery life.
- Recharge the batteries only with the charger provided by the manufacturer, as providing an incorrect voltage may cause a fire (or you may end up burning the battery pack).
For these power tools consider using connections that correspond to the plugs, avoid modifying the connection in any way or using defective adapters, as this increases the risk of electric shock.
Above all else about this cordless tool, keep in mind that Chicago Pneumatic's goal is to: Build tools that help you work efficiently and safely. The performance and safety of this tool depends mostly on the operator, who by using the tool for the assigned tasks will be able to perform their work reducing the main risks to which the tool and the operator himself may be subjected.
How is the calibration of an industrial scale carried out?
Well, the first thing to keep in mind is that this process of calibration of the scales is that this must be done regularly, correctly and with metrological traceability in order to know the precision of the weighing instrument used, which in this case is the scale.
In calibrating an industrial scale, we must consider the following:
First we have the scale calibration test, which has been mentioned as the procedure through which the precision with which the weighing instrument performs its work is confirmed.
Once it has been defined that this work must be carried out, preparations begin.
The preparations in the calibration refers to all those pre-conditions that must be fulfilled for the test to be carried out successfully. This includes knowing the technical specifications of the instrument.
Once the preparation requirements are met, the weighing test is carried out, placing the load in different places on the weighing plate, in order to know if there are differences in the result of the weighing offered by the scale when placing the load in different places.
In this way you can establish the place where the measurements should be made (many weighing errors are caused by placing the load in a location outside the center of the plate) and then perform repetitions to ensure that there is an error.
If the weighing instrument gives an error, the calibration is carried out, placing loads on the plate (these loads have precise weights specified and guaranteed by an external entity) where the scale must give as a result the weight that each load indicates.
This test includes placing a load with the minimum weight stipulated by the scale and measuring it accurately (taking into account the percentage of error of the scale).
After having carried out the calibration with the loads, a second weighing test is carried out.
At this point, is where the calibration loop begins, which only ends when the measurements made by the weighing instrument or scale give satisfactory results.
Well, if the scale has been calibrated, then the measurements should be accurate tolerating only the margin of error stipulated by the manufacturer, in this measurement the weighing is carried out with several repetitions to successfully verify that a successful calibration has been achieved.
Otherwise, recalibrations and weighing tests are carried out, until the test is considered completed and successful.
We must bear in mind that the main focus of these tests, the considerations indicated, the different tests and practices may vary, but the principles are the same.
Radwag industrial balances offered by First Technology are calibrated during manufacture and are accompanied by manufacturer's instructions that will allow you to precisely calibrate your measuring instruments. For more information click here.
