Maintaining boring machine parts requires proper torque control.

How to Extend Boring Machine Parts Lifespan to Keep Maintenance Projects on Track

As tunnel workers know, boring machines are anything but. Ranging from merely large to staggeringly huge, these complicated devices chew through loam, clay, and solid rock to excavate large and small tunnels across the world. What’s also enormous is the degree to which the success of a tunneling project rests on the proper maintenance of…

TLS Pro ESD Screwdrivers

Preventing ESD Mishaps During the Fastening Process

Stopping the occurrence of electrostatic discharge is very important in today’s world. Many electronic components are sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). Manufacturing engineers involved with microelectronic products are very aware of the importance of preventing ESD mishaps. Lapses in preventing the occurrence can affect manufacturing costs, product quality and profitability through catastrophic damage or, worse,…
