Module, IT6000 tool body, coiled air line, owner’s manual and tool kit.
(tools with packaging option 1 include the tool and manual only)
Pressure conversion: bar = kPa / 100
Initial Setup - Pneumatics
•
Connect the tool body to the Air Controller Module using the included Coiled Hose
Assembly. The hose assembly includes both a clear and black hose. Each hose
end includes a female and male fitting, arranged to prevent reversing of
connections.
•
Connect Air Controller Module to air source (assure air supply meets
requirements on page 4) and turn RED Shut-off Valve counter clockwise to
pressurize tool (supply position).
•
Cut-off Pressure: 105 PSI (760 kPa) recommended. Make sure the Cut-off
Pressure Gauge located on the left side of the module reads a pressure of 100
PSI min and 110 PSI max.
•
Tension Pressure: 70 PSI (480 kPa) recommended. The Tension Pressure
Gauge monitors the tension applied to the clamp tail. Recommended air pressure
at the Tension Gauge should be 50-75 PSI (345-520 kPa) for BAND-IT 3/8” TieLok® Ties.
•
Caution: Tension pressures above 75 PSI (520 kPa) may cause premature clamp
failure and/or tool wear.
Setting the Tool Air Pressure
The tension pressure directly affects the force applied to the clamp.
To correctly set the air pressure from the air controller module going to the tool, hook up
the air supply to the tool. Activate the tool by depressing the trigger for a few seconds.
Re-read the pressure when the tool is at rest and adjust again if necessary. Repeat until
the desired pressure is shown on the tension pressure gage.
Tension pressure may need to be adjusted depending on the application.

Tool Overview
3/8” Tie-Lok® Tool
Pneumatic System:
The pneumatic valves and cylinders contain seals and o-ring components which can
experience accelerated wear associated with the quality of the air supply. Worn cylinder orings allow air to bypass the pistons in the cylinders, affecting the performance of the tool
and cause the output force of the tool to drift. Although cylinders are permanently
lubricated, premature wear can be caused by contaminants in the air supply or the presence
of water and oil. The tool’s internal valves can also be affected by contaminants in the air
lines causing a valve malfunction.
BAND-IT recommends the use of an Air Booster System to address the potential problems
associated with low air supply. In addition to filtering and drying the air supply, it will assure
pressure of 100 -110 PSI (690-760 kPa) improving the consistency of tool performance.
Tool Function:
The IT6000 tool utilizes the conditioned air supply to actuate the mechanical linkage. The
linkage activates a gripping system which tensions the 3/8” wide Tie-Lok ties. This tension
output of the tool can vary depending upon the air pressure supplied to the tool. If the pressure
is increased, the output force increases.
During the tension cycle, the tool continues to tension the band until the pre-set tension is
achieved. The tool stops tensioning when the pressure in the tension cylinder equals the inlet
tension pressure coming from the air controller module. After the tool has achieved the preset
tension, its valve switches over to the cutoff cycle. The gripping system retains force on the tie
until a knife is actuated down, forming a dimple lock and cutting the excess clamp tail.

3/8” Tie-Lok® Tool
Part of insuring that the tool is producing a strong lock is making sure that it approaches
the application correctly and is fixtured to allow repeatability of application. The tool
should approach the surface tangent to where the buckle of the band is to be applied.
The tool should be allowed to float 1/8” – 1/4” above the surface to allow the buckle to
move to the proper position for cut-off. Once the tool begins tensioning, the band will
pull the tool down to the surface.
1/8” – 1/4”
Pivot Point
Buckle Location
As the band is tensioning, the tool may rotate clockwise up to 5 degrees about the pivot
point (Green Arrow). During the cut-off cycle, the tool must be allowed to rotate counterclockwise up to 35 degrees (Blue Arrow). Because of this movement, BAND-IT
recommends that the tool be mounted in a fixture that will provide adequate
rotation during both cycles.

Remote Operations
& Fixturing Tips
3/8” Tie-Lok® Tool
IT6000 Orientation Requirements:
•
The IT6000 tool has a number of Tool/Clamp/Object Being Clamped
orientation requirements that must be followed in order to reach an acceptable
end result.
•
In concept, the fixture maker should attempt to replicate the natural human
wrist/elbow/shoulder motions that would occur when operating the tool in the
hand-held configuration, allowing the tool to float along a plane through the
entire Tension (pull-up) and Cut-Off (lock) process.
The Tool MUST:
•
Contact the object being clamped without restricting or forcing.
Suggestions Include:
•
The tool fixture should be able to accommodate some longitudinal rotational
movement, i.e. “wrist like”, at the final moment of applied tension. The
purpose being, to allow the tool freedom of movement to orient itself in its best
natural orientation as relates to the clamp and the object-being-clamped.
•
A home or neutral position should be established at the optimal final position
with +/- 10-12½ degrees of rotational freedom being allowed from the pivot
point.
•
The tool fixture should be able to accommodate some extensive movement,
i.e. “elbow like”, during the tension phase to allow the tool to be “pulled” up to
the object being clamped.
•
Deviations from accommodating the natural inclination of the tool/clamp/object
being clamped, may negatively impact the integrity of the final assembly. The
clamp should fully rest upon the object being clamped at the time of final
tension and cut-off. If the tool can not reach the object being clamped and
attempts to cut-off, the clamp and/or lock may not form optimally.

3/8” Tie-Lok® Tool
IT6000 Configured for Remote Actuation:
•
The IT6000 with trigger option 1 and is a modified version of the base unit. A tool with trigger option 0 is
manually operated via the incorporated thumb actuation lever. A tool with trigger option 1 is configured to
allow remote operation via palm button or other device permitting the tool to be incorporated into the
customer’s fixture or assembly process.
•
The modification consists of deactivating the thumb lever actuation switch and installing two 6-ft X 1/8”
O.D. hoses to accomplish the same task via the use of a remote actuation device such as a palm button
or other device that can provide a pneumatic signal to pilot the tension control valve.
•
Various actuation devices can be incorporated based upon end user requirements. Basic schematic for 2way & 3-way valves included below. The valve should be set up in the normally closed mode and upon
opening the circuit a supply of air is provided.
•
The customer is responsible for incorporating this tool into their process, BAND-IT is available to provide
advice and recommendations.

Operating Tips
3/8” Tie-Lok® Tool
Tie Installation:
When installing a tie, a random visual check to verify the presence of a dimple after
the tie has been applied is recommended. The dimple is the locking element of an
installed band. The IT6000 forms a dimple into the band with the punch. By
controlling and monitoring the items that are needed to form a good lock, an operator
can help insure that the band will be applied correctly without having to inspect every
assembly.
These items are:
• Adequate air pressure and volume (see page 4,6)
• Setting the tool air pressure (see page 4,6)
• Following recommended PM Schedule (see page 21)
• Fixture mounting the tool properly (see page10-13 )
For best performance and to extend tool life:
• Follow preventative maintenance and parts replacement instructions
(page 21) at appropriate service intervals.
• Do not remove factory applied lubrication from inside tool unless performing a
thorough maintenance procedure and replacing with fresh lubricant immediately.
• Do not use degreaser in the tool body.
• Do not spray any lubricant or cleaner into the Quick Connect Air Couplings.
• Use nominal recommended tension setting (listed on page 4-6). Higher pressure
may not result in a tighter clamp, but increases the likelihood of clamp tail jamming
and premature worn parts.
• Do not over-tighten Knife Pin access screws. Over tightening of these screws may
result in stripping screw threads.
• For maintenance beyond what is described in this manual, consult BAND-IT.

1. Insert clamp tail into tool as shown. Clamp tail length
extending into tool must be at least 2.5” (6.4 cm) long. The
head of the tool should rest against the buckle. Note - Do not
activate tool while inserting clamp tail. This can cause
clamp tail to jam in the Tension Block Assembly.
2. Begin tensioning clamp by pushing and holding down
operating trigger
3. Band should be applied to a uniform solid surface allowing
the buckle adequate support during the clamp locking and
clamp tail cut-off operation.
4. While tensioning clamp, hold tool slightly tipped forward.
This will assist proper clamp installation. Continue to hold
down operating trigger until tool completely tensions and
cuts off clamp. Release trigger after cut off.
5. After clamp is completed, clamp tail scrap must be
removed from tool. Clamp tail scrap is not ejected
automatically. Tool is now ready for next clamp.

Troubleshooting
3/8” Tie-Lok® Tool
Tool fails to fully tension clamp:
Failure to fully tension the clamp can be caused by a variety of factors. The two most
common factors are: incorrect tension pressure and problems in the Tension Block
Assembly.
• Check tension pressure setting on Tension Pressure Gauge of Air Controller Module.
Adjust pressure per the settings in the Setup & Assembly Instructions section found on
(pages 9-11).
• After air pressure settings are verified or corrected, if failure to fully tension clamps
continues, evaluate the clamp tail dimple pattern. If elongated dimples are present, the
problem may be with the Tension Block.
Normal clamp tail
dimple pattern.
Clamp tail dimple pattern indicates
problem in the tension block
assembly.
 If a problem is indicated, follow the instructions on page 24 to remove the tension block
assembly.
 Examine the Tension Block components for excess lubrication. Refer to lubrication
instructions on pages 24, 27.

3/8” Tie-Lok® Tool
Procedure to adjust the timing of the clamp tail cut-off:
The Timing Valve will be affected over time by
contaminants in the air system. Moisture, dirt
particles, oil and solvents can cause blockage or
fluctuations in the tool performance.
Cycle should be .9 – 1.3 seconds.
Cut-off timing set too short will not allow the clamp to
achieve the desired tension before switching to the
cut-off function causing a loose clamp. Clamping on
softer objects requires a longer timing.
Cut-off timing set too long may slow production and
cause operator to twist the tool during application.
This may damage tool.
Bottom airline
Procedure:
1) Remove the two cap screws in the Handle Cover with
a 9/64” hex key. Remove cover and lay aside.
2) The Brass Needle Valve used to adjust timing is
highlighted in view to the left.
3) To adjust: Hold the valve in position being careful not
to kink tubing inside tool. Start by gently turning the
Adjusting Valve Screw clockwise until snug. Back out
the Adjusting Screw counterclockwise 1 1/2 turns.
This should be the proper setting, yielding a .9-1.3
second delay.
4) To test and verify proper adjustment: Connect the tool
to the Air Control Module, then turn supply valve on.
Gently kink the coiled air supply tube connected to the
bottom Quick Connect Air Coupling (top photo), then
activate the Tool Trigger. This action causes the tool
to cut off, allowing the timing to be reviewed. Adjusting
the Timing Screw in by ½ turn will slow the tool’s cutoff action. Adjusting the Timing Screw out by a half
turn increases the speed of the cut-off activation.
Repeat this entire step until timing is set at a .9 – 1.3
second delay. Caution: Setting timing to less than
.4 may result in loose clamps.

Tension Cylinder
Pressure Monitoring
System
3/8” Tie-Lok® Tool
The tension feedback system provides an indication, but not confirmation, of clamp tail tension by transmitting a
pressure reading from the tension cylinder via a pressure transducer. The cut-off cylinder begins to move when the
tool has reached maximum tension. The force applied by the tension cylinder is calculated from the transducer
signal. The transducer signal is recorded when the cut-off cylinder begins to move. The system also provides a
gateway to pass the number of completed cycles of both the tension and cutoff cylinders to the data collection
device. Data, in ASCII format, is sent via an RS-232 serial port to a data collection device (not part of the system).
The tension feedback system consists of:
(1) Data Control Box
(2) 5VDC Power Supply with interchangeable outlet clips
(US, UK and Europe)
(3) RS232 Serial Cable, approx. 10 ft length
(4) 15 foot Data Cable
(5) CD with programs and this manual
(1)
(6) Tool with other option 1
(2)
(3)
Initial Set Up:
• Connect the serial cable from the data control box to the data collection device, (e.g. Computer)
• Set the BAUD selection switch on the back of the control box to the desired communication speed: 2400 or 9600.
• Connect the data cable to the receptacles on both the tool and control box.
• If desired, one or both of the relay contact sets can be connected to a customer supplied device. For example,
these can be used to send signals to a PLC, or control a tool shutoff device.
• Plug the 5VDC power supply into a 110-240VAC 50-60Hz wall outlet and the cable to the power connector on the
Control Box.
• The green indicator on the control box should be lit indicating the system is ready to monitor the tension pressure.
• If the yellow indicator is lit this indicates the tool has not been detected. Insure the data cable is connected and
routed away from sources of electrical noise.
• For information on data capture, refer to page 31.
• To verify tool cut-off timing, refer to pages 28, 33.

Setting the upper and lower control limits:
Included in the CD provided with the tool is a program that can be used to adjust the type
of data and the upper and lower control limits that the control box will monitor.

3.
4.
5.

7.
Connect the control box to power and to a device that will allow 2-way RS232
communication, such as a PC with HyperTerminal. For this procedure flow control must
be disabled.
On the CD, locate and run the file named “Control Settings.exe”
Press the Download button. This will load a program into the control box.
Open the HyperTerminal and follow the instructions. If the option to check both pressure
and force is selected, use caution in setting the limits. Both the force and pressure ranges
must be met to keep from generating an error message, so it is possible to create a
situation where the error state will never clear.
Once the limits have been set, close the HyperTerminal and locate and run the file named
“I75301.exe” located on the CD. Press Download and the operating program will be reinstalled.
The data control box is now ready for use.
Example:
Program: I75302 Rev A
This program will reset the limits on the Data Control Box
Enter the units of force to use: LBF (L), or Newton (N): L
Enter data type to check: PSI (p), Force (f), or Both (b): F
Enter the lower force limit: 300
Enter the upper force limit: 360
Force: 300 to 360 LBF
If this is correct, download the operating program.
If not, try again.
Suggestions for choosing the control limits:
All control boxes arrive from the factory pre-set to check the pressure range stated in this
manual.
As the pressure to force relationship changes from tool to tool, it is recommended that the
force be the limiting factor. Keep in mind that the force range required will vary depending
on the clamping application. Run test samples at different settings to determine the upper
and lower limits acceptable for the application.

•
•
•
When the system calculates a force or pressure outside the predetermined range the red light will
be lit, error message will be appended to output data string, and the contacts of relay-1 will close.
This condition could be caused by: tension pressure set incorrectly, an air leak in the tool, cut-off
timing set too short, or low air supply volume to the tool.
Correct the problems as required and cycle the tool by installing a clamp or using the M28090
device. If the red indicator is still lit, continue to look for and correct problems related to the air
system.
Note: Pushing the button on the control box will clear the error, return the indicator to green, and
open the relay contacts. This is not normally needed, unless the relay directly controls a shutoff
device to the tool. See page 34 for additional means to reset the system.
When the Control box first detects a connected tool, it will output the tool information: Total number
of cycles and tool serial number.

Trouble Shooting Guide for the Tension Feedback System:
No data output: Is power connected? Is the tool connected with a CAT5 patch cable? Is the
control box connected using a RS-232 serial cable? Null modem cables will NOT work with
this device. Some computer systems’ ports, to which the control box is connected, may be
in use by another program. Close the program or try another port.
Data output is garbled: Check the settings on the data capture device and control box.
Maximum cable length can be 25 feet between control box and tool, maximum cable length
between the breakout box and data capture location can be 50 feet. (For longer serial cable
run, we suggest the use of a serial line amplifier).
Tool cycles, but no tool data is output: If the breakout box sends the header strings, but not
tool pressure and force data, make sure the air lines inside tool handle are not pinched.
This can be verified by loosening the two handle screws and re-cycling the tool. Verify
timing is properly adjusted, refer to page 28. Verify the cable connections and settings are
correct and the tool is operating at correct tension cylinder pressure.
Tool cycles and system reads normal but clamp is loose:
Refer to this manual. See air pressure settings, cleaning, lubrication, preventative
maintenance, parts replacement sections. Tool user is responsible for ensuring clamp
application.
Box randomly resets and/or occasionally fails to send data:
Caused by interference from outside sources. Move the box away from devices like power
converters and motors. If this is not possible the box can be placed inside its own
shielded/grounded enclosure.

Cut-off Timing Verification Procedure:
1.
This procedure requires the use of the M28090 Calibration Device.
2.
Prepare tool by connecting the M28090 Calibration Device per instructions included
with the device.
3.
To switch the breakout box over to check cut-off timing, press and hold the button on
the control box 3-4 seconds. The green indicator will begin flashing and the display will
read “Ready to check timing: Press Trigger”
4.
Press the trigger on the Tool. The control box will output the measured cut-off
timing.
Examples:
“Timing OK, Time = 1.01 sec”
“Timing Error! Timing short = .80 sec”
5.
The green indicator will light and remain solid if the timing is well within the
suggested range. The Red indicator will light if the timing cycle is set too short
or too long. Follow instructions on page 28 for adjustments and re-check.
6.
Press the reset button on the tool and the control box will reset, flashing the
green indicator and be ready to check the timing again.
7.
To switch from timing check mode to normal program operation, press and
hold the reset button on the breakout box for 3-4 seconds.
Note: The program will not switch into or out of timing mode unless it detects
an attached tool.

Connections:
1.
Data cable connection between tool and breakout box:
8-pin, 15 ft long, CAT5e cable provided. This cable carries 5 VDC power and 5
digital lines. Using a cable longer than 15 ft will degrade the signal and may cause
the tool to incorrectly report pressure readings.
Only connect the data control box to the tool. Never connect either the tool or control
box to any other device. Damage may occur to device, control box, and/or tool.
Before connecting the cable to the tool and control box, check for debris inside both
connectors. On rare occasions, debris inside the connectors will cause a short,
possibly damaging the electronics.
2.
Serial connection:
9-pin, approx 10 ft long, straight RS232 serial cable provided. Do not use a null
modem cable. (pins 1, and 6 thru 9 are inactive)
Pin 2: Data is sent on this pin in ASCII format
Pin 3: Not needed for normal operation. This pin is used to reprogram the control
box and needs to be connected for program updates.
Pin 4: This pin controls the control box reset and programming. Changing the state
of the this pin from low to high will force a reset on the control box. If needed, this
can be used to clear errors.
See Figure for Pin Assignments:
3.
Relay contacts:
Two sets of normally open relay contacts. Each set can handle up to 12VDC
500mA of power.
To connect to the contacts, use the provided screw terminal block.

Tool
Calibration
3/8” Tie-Lok® Tool
BAND-IT’s use of the word calibration refers to the tool’s electronic output being
checked against a load measuring device. This is to insure that the electronic
calculation of the output force based on the supply pressure is still matched up with
the actual output force of the tool. To measure the actual output of the tool, BAND-IT
has developed a Calibration Device (M28090). Call BAND-IT for more information.
The Calibration Device is installed onto the tool in place of the maintenance cover.
The tension block of the tool presses up against the load cell on the calibration device
when the trigger of the tool is depressed, allowing the tension force to be captured.
The force is displayed on the readout. The direction of the tension force is shown by
the white arrow. See the M28090 manual for further information.

To check the calibration of the tool, attach the calibration device, hook up the air supply
and actuate the trigger. Read the display once the tool stops moving. If the M28090
calibration device varies from the calculated force output from the data acquisition
system by more than 15 lbs, the tool needs to be sent to BAND-IT-IDEX, Inc. for repair.
Press the tool reset button to release the force and remove the calibration device. Be
sure to clean and lubricate the maintenance cover before reinstalling the cover on the
tool and inserting the Quick Release Pins shown on page 7.
