Snap-on Industrial has a strong commitment and proven track record in the aerospace industry. For years, its tools have helped keep aircraft flying and ground support equipment operational. Its research and development has led to innovations in new products, such as Flank Drive and the Level 5™ Tool Control System, both of which improve efficiencies, reduce FOD, and raise the standards of quality and safety to levels never seen before in the industry.
But Snap-on Industrial isn’t resting on past accomplishments as it takes tool accountability and control to new heights. The company has developed specialized curriculum for certification and training programs that will ensure technicians meet the standards required by the aerospace industry.
An example of the Snap-on Industrial training offering is torque certification, a program designed to properly train technicians on the applications, uses, and principals of torque and torque tools. The company’s torque program certifies that a technician can apply the fundamentals of proper fastener tensioning. The curriculum, which is divided into three segments, includes 24 hours of instruction that focuses on torque theory, application of torque and corresponding safety measures, and proper use of hydraulic torque tools with large fasteners.
The program is taught at technical schools across the United States.
The Snap-on story dates to 1920 and the founding of the Snap-on Wrench Company by Joseph Johnson and William Seidemann, who pioneered the idea of interchangeable sockets and wrench handles. The company manufactured and marketed 10 sockets that would “snap on” to five interchangeable handles, a concept that revolutionized the hand-tool industry.
Snap-on Industrial is a division of Snap-on Incorporated. Headquartered in Kenosha, WI, Snap-on’s sales, distribution, and manufacturing network reaches across 130 countries on every continent. Today, the Snap-on organization boasts 35 manufacturing facilities around the world with nearly 12,000 employees.
