Products & Services
Turnbuckles
Turnbuckles are used in rigging to join wire-rope or cable to an anchor point or other length of wire. They have a screw thread to allow for precise length and tension adjustment.
Tablet Computers
Tablet computers are notebook computers with a liquid crystal display (LCD) on which the user can write using a special-purpose pen, or stylus.
Thread Lockers and Retainers
Thread lockers and retainers render threaded fasteners immovable. They are used mainly with devices that are subject to transverse and axial loads that may lead to vibrational loosening.
Sucker Rods
Sucker rods are used to connect the surface pumping unit to the downhole components of a pumping system in an oil and gas well.
Pipe Fittings
Pipe fittings cover many components that connect pipe ends for in-line, offset, multi-port, and mounting configurations.
