Tools, equipment, and supplies for industrial fabrication, assembly, and prototyping.
Anvils are material forming tools, providing a tough impact surface for worked parts. Made from a large, hard source material like stone or metal, they support material - often metal - part-work activities like chiseling, hammering and forging.
Assembly and insertion presses are used for various types of assembly, including bearing or shaft assembly, insertion or press fitting, and staking.
Banding and strapping tools are handheld devices that are used to hold an otherwise loose load firmly together. Banding tools are used to tightly band the outside of a collection of objects while strapping tools are designed to apply strapping in tension.
Bearing heaters facilitate assembly or disassembly of bearings by heating the bearing or work piece. The heat introduced causes thermal expansion, which allows the bearing to be mounted or dismounted without damage.
Bearing pullers are devices for assembling and disassembling bearings. They are often hand-held and manually-powered devices, but this area also includes mountable and powered devices like bearing heaters used before assembly.
Chisels are cutting tools designed with a sharp cutting edge at one end for cutting or shaping metal, wood or stone.
Clinching machines fasten sheet metal components using a cold forming process. A punch forces the two layers of sheet metal into a die, deforming the workpieces along multiple axes, to create a permanent connection.
Drain cleaning machines are mechanical devices for alleviating clogs in drains.
Drive sockets and adapters include individual products and packaged sets of removable wrench and interchangeable bit screwdriver attachments.
Driver bits apply torque from a screwdriver, drill, or t-handle to hardware fasteners, such as screws, bolts, or nuts.
Eyelet and grommet machinery and equipment is to install eyelets and grommets. Devices can be manually, electrically, pneumatically or hydraulically-actuated; and consist of handheld tools, benchtop presses, or floor-standing machines.
Hammers are simple, usually hand-held tools intended to deliver impact force to an object using a non-rotary force. They can be powered or manually-driven.
Drills are hand-held tools with rotating drill bits used to fabricate holes in multiple materials. They are widely used in construction, carpentry, metalworking, assembly, and maintenance.
Hand saws are hand-held tools, either powered or manually-driven, that are designed to cut through softer materials. They accomplish cutting using a hard, serrated blade, or by using a wire with an abrasive edge.
Hose crimpers are powered and un-powered tools for joining deformable metal fittings with sections of rigid and flexible hose and tubing. They range from simple, portable, handheld devices that are designed for piecework to sophisticated, sometimes automated, benchtop, work cell, or freestanding machines that are engineered for precision and high-volume runs.
Hot tapping machines are used to safely drill into pressurized pipe to add main or service lines without interrupting the service.
Impact wrenches are socket wrench power tools which apply a high amount of torque to tighten or loosen fasteners.
Metal files, rasps and rifflers have serrated cutting surfaces for rounding off sharp edges, removing burrs, blending parting lines, cleaning, surface preparation, and other part surface finishing applications.
Nut runner controllers are matched with nut runners in precision fastening and assembly applications in which torque control is important. Both electric and pneumatic devices are available.
Nut runners and nut drivers are tools used for tightening nuts. By definition, nut drivers are purely mechanical hand tools, while nut runners are pneumatic, electric, or hydraulic power tools.
Pipe and hose pressing tools are used to apply a large, circumferential compressive force to quickly create liquid-tight connections in metal and plastic fluid-handling systems.
Pipe and tube cutters are hand-held tools or machines that use a rotating cutting wheel, blade, or other tool head to separate a long piece of tubular material into two or more parts.
Pliers (plyers) are handheld, manually-powered hand tools, often employing serrated jaws, designed for holding, cutting, bending, or manipulation of tough or difficult materials such as wire, sheet metal, or fine machine components.
Industrial screwdrivers and screwfeeders are automated tools that are used to turn screws while providing close control of screw torque. They can be electric or pneumatic and may include features such as torque feedback and controlled stopping.
Screwdrivers, also known as turn screws, are hand-held, manually-powered simple implements designed for insertion and tightening of screws.
Tool balancers hold a hand-operated tool in a pre-set position to minimize operator effort during use of the tool.
Tool kits contain different types and sizes of tools, often in a convenient carrying case.
Tool retractors hold the weight of a tool to minimize operator stress and fatigue.
Tool support systems provide support for one or more tools, such as impact wrenches, screwdrivers, staplers and other tools.
Torque wrenches are hand or power tools that are used to apply a specific amount of torque to a fastener.
Utility knives are handheld, bladed cutting tools used to shear various materials during many manufacturing, handling, and construction processes.
Wrenches, also known as spanners, are hand-held tools designed to provide a mechanical advantage in applying torque for turning bolts, nuts, and other wrench-friendly objects.
