High durability hand tools for industrial assembly, cutting, forming or marking that are often automated or have monitoring capabilities.
Drilling and tapping end effectors attach to the end of a robotic arm, and perform machining of holes and threads in a target material. The effectors are adapted to the end of an articulating robotic arm, often via an interfacing device called an automated tool changer (ATC). A common application for drilling and tapping end effectors is on automobile manufacturing assembly lines.
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.
Gasket cutters are manually operated tools used for cutting gaskets. There are several types of gasket cutters and they can be used in a wide variety of 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.
Packing hooks and extractors, also referred to as packing pullers, are tools that extract used packing material from pumps and valves.
Rapid prototyping equipment produces a three-dimensional (3D) paper, plastic, wax, ceramic or metal prototype or pattern.
Riveters and riveting machines insert fasteners through aligned holes in parts to be joined, then press or hammer them from the insertion side to provide the second retaining head.
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.
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.
Industrial workbenches and industrial workstations are locations where personnel perform work. Products range from economy workbenches to cleanroom and electronic assembly benches.
