Ratchets Feature Dual80 Technology For Strength, Durability
- Published: Wednesday, 10 April 2013 11:59
Snap-on Industrial introduced three new ratchets that meet foreign object damage (FOD) and foreign material exclusion (FME) conformance.
These ratchets are ideal for critical applications where FOD and FME prevention is crucial. The ratchets are FOD- and FME-compliant because the coverplate and reverse lever are permanently affixed to the ratchet head with rivets to prevent the chance of small parts from separating from the tool.
The new 3/8-in. drive ratchets feature Snap-on Industrial’s Dual80 Technology, which include dual pawls and an 80-tooth gear for more power in less lateral space (1/4-in. drive has 72 gear teeth). The ratchets are also designed to have a low profile to fit in tight spaces, and work with the shortest swing arc, providing better access to restricted areas.
