Air Power, Inc. is an Authorized Sturtevant Richmont Distributor
You may not know the Sturtevant Richmont name, but if you are using torque tools or torque testers, you are using some of their inventions. In 1924, Walter P. Chrysler invented the beam wrench and licensed Paul A. Sturtevant to manufacture and sell the tool. In that moment, the torque error proofing industry was born.
The two companies invented the preset click wrench, the torque screwdriver, interchangeable heads for torque wrenches, power tool testers, digital torque testers, wireless error proofing, and more. Those tools became the backbone of the torque tool industry.
ISO is the Cornerstone of Error Proofing Performance
Sturtevant Richmont was one of the early adopters of ISO 9001 and ISO 17025. As the American representative on the working committees that write the ISO standards, their focus is reproducible results, worldwide, through process control.
All SR torque testers, torque wrenches and torque screwdrivers are certified in their ISO/IEC17025:2005 A2LA accredited laboratories.
Systematic and Strategic
Considering Factory 4.0 or Poka-Yoke applications? Sturtevant Richmont tools are designed to eliminate human influence on torque application. This reduces assembly errors while improving through put.
Need Factory 4.0 type data but don’t have the budget for wireless controllers? Sturtevant Richmont has low cost/high value torque solutions like the DTC (digital torque control) torque and angle wrench. The tool stores torque results that can be downloaded via freeware and uploaded into Excel or other applications.
Data can be used to print a “digital birth certificate” to be shipped with the build.
