Lindstrom

Lindstrom ESD-Safe Ergonomic Rx CuttersIf you work with cutters all day long then you know how important ergonomics are. Worker fatigue can lead to many problems, from product defects to medical issues. Using an ergonomic cutter can help reduce fatigue, allowing operators to reduce strain and increase productivity. Lindstrom RX series cutters provide this ergonomic support, through operator oriented design.

The light weight handles on the RX series cutters are also made from a textured plastic material, to keep the device solidly and comfortably in your hand. Their rounded shape helps you maneuver the cutter to easily find the best working angle.

RX series cutters also feature a return spring which automatically opens the cutters to let you keep your hands in the correct position. The unique spring design keeps resistance low during cutting to reduce fatigue on difficult cuts. This spring is adjustable to allow different grip widths as well as variable resistance.  The springs are also easily replaced to keep tool repairing costs low.

Most importantly, the cutter blade is made with precision-ground edges to provide a sharp cut over a long life span. There are many types of blades available, so you can choose the cutter that meets your specifications. We also carry Lindstrom RX series pliers, which feature the same ergonomic handles with various types of heads and tips.

Lindstrom ESD-Safe Torque Screwdrivers Lindstrom’s ESD-safe torque screwdrivers are designed to give you great precision in an easy-to-use tool. All-Spec Industries carries two types of Lindstrom torque drivers, pre-set and micro-adjustable. The pre-set torque drivers allow you to select a specific tension to be set by the factory while allowing you to adjust the tension on the inside of the tool. The micro-adjustment models allow for instant changes, so you can modify your torque settings fast and easily whenever needed. Both come with a factory calibration certificate traceable to NIST.

(special thanks to Mike Billings at Lindstrom for guest blogging the content below!)

Most torque testers are expensive and complicated or cheap with limited utility. It doesn’t have to be that way. Lindstrom now offers one that is affordable, accurate and easy to use over a wide range of torque devices and torque settings.

When ALL-SPEC customers hear Lindstrom mentioned, they probably think of our “little yellow cutter” or the pioneering ergonomic design of our RX Series ERGO cutters and pliers. But one of our most popular tool lines is our torque screwdriver range, both micro-adjustable and preset. People love the elegant yet tough tools for their consistently good results.

DTT Lindstrom Torque Tester For years, customers have asked us if we make a tester for use with torque devices, one as good as our screwdrivers. Back then, all we made were hand tools. Now, we make what just may be the best little Digital Torque Tester™ available: DTT-501-EZ.

Like our torque screwdrivers, DTT will be prized for its accuracy and repeatability. They share the same rugged design and tough powdercoat finish and both were created by the Snap-on Industrial Brand engineers who design torque wrenches and professional calibration systems for our company. So, we were able to pack a ton of features into these affordable torque testers. With a range of 20 to 800 inch ounces, the DTT can execute a quick peak-value check on torque devices – wrenches, screwdrivers, T-handles and even electric-drive on low RPM – to verify values – or perform a three-stage calibration sequence that adheres to A.S.M.E. standards. Visual and audio cues show users as torque values change during testing. Test data can be instantly downloaded to any text or spreadsheet program.

DTT Torque Tester in Case As implied in its name, DTT-501-EZ is easy to use. The touch screen has an intuitive design that makes it simple to navigate from opening screen to the type of test desired. Typical torque units (ft.lb., Nm, kgcm, etc.) are supported in both SAE and International Standard. Lindstrom preprogrammed the DTT to automatically step through settings of 20%, 60% and 100% to test adjustable torque devices in conformance with A.S.M.E. B107-28-2005. Calibrations are traceable to N.I.S.T. standards and Lindstrom DTT-501-EZ is accurate to +/- 0.5% within specified range.

The Lindstrom Digital Torque TesterTM is an affordable and versatile torque testing machine that can be mounted on a wall, bench-top or mobile test cart. All DTT are sold as a complete kit including AC/DC power supply, USB cable, hex adapter, six-cell battery pack and carrying case.

All-Spec Industries is now carrying the Lindstrom DTT-501-EZ!

All-Spec Industries is an authorized distributor of Lindstrom tools. Lindstrom is one of the oldest continuous producers of hand tools still around today; they’ve been producing precision pliers and cutters since 1856.
