Your company may call them backup tools, holding tools, or holding wrenches. If you understand the need to hold a hose or a fastener part while torquing a fastener, you are in the right place.
Hydraulic hose assembly has vexed engineers since hydraulic hoses were invented. Hoses have become stronger and connections have become more consistent. But in many cases, hydraulic connections still leak.
To prevent leaking and the high cost of warranty claims and rework, Sturtevant Richmont created a new error-proofing solution specifically for hydraulic hose installations.
The Sturtevant Richmont innovative holding wrenches combine the robust technology of our XBee FM 2.4 GHz radios with the high reliability of our SLTC and LTC click wrenches. The newly engineered design ensures the holding wrench performed the task for which it was created and it provides feedback to the operator.
Built with the same design as our other click wrenches the flattened case and the bearing supported mechanism ensure repeatability and durability of the highest order.
And, the Global 400 reads the radio signal and a fastener can only be compliant when both the application wrench AND the holding wrench determine the job was done properly.
The Holding Tool Technology wrenches come in two sizes:
810673 HTS Holding Wrench 13"
810674 HTL Holding Wrench 20"
Compatible with the Global 400 and Global 400mp, the 1200 Series Exacta 2, the 1250 Series Exacta 2, the SLTC FM 2.4 GHz preset click wrench, the PST 2000, and the PST 1200 Series Pneumatic Sensor Transceiver.
Sturtevant Richmont tools are made in Carol Stream, Illinois by highly capable hands.
