SP IS the latest brand of prestige hand tools to hit the New Zealand automotive and engineering industries.
SP Japan has supplied high quality air tools to the international industrial market for years and it is on the back of this experience that the SP hand tool range has been launched.
Unlike many other hand tool suppliers, the huge SP hand tool range reflects thousands of hours of research and development and is based on the actual needs of today’s engineers.
For example, SP is the only producer of twin knurled sockets (for better grip) and with six and 12pt styles available in every metric and imperial size.
As the primary manufacturers, SP Japan has produced a special dual flat drive ring and open end spanner with the box end individually hand ground for immediate contact onto the fastener. The mirror-smooth triple-coated chrome vanadium finish means the tools are comfortable to use and easy to clean once the job is done.
SP Ratchets feature arguably the world’s best hardened gear drive mechanism and when break tested by a hydraulic press, it is the square drive anvil that finally shears, not the ring gears. This is because SP has its own hardening process in Japan, perfected over years of experience and now used by world-class automobile manufacturers.
SP Toolboxes are built larger and stronger than other brands and include seam welded joints for rigidity and strength, dual gas strut lid stays, and over-sized castor wheels for greater manage-ability. The extra deep drawers run on 28 ball bearing slides and on some models feature ‘clicklok’ safety latches to prevent accidental opening.
Every drawer tool kit has a special EVA foam moulded insert to neatly house each tool while a quick-fit tool storage tray system can also be fitted.
SP offers a large range of toolboxes, cabinets and chests available in stainless steel powder coated finishes – including their unique ‘concept series’ tool chests with side storage compartments, wooden insert tops and strong ‘ tee bone’ style frame design.
SP Air tools are recognised as among the best in the world and used extensively in the automotive and aviation assembly industries. Being major suppliers to the racecar industry SP Tools produces the special 3000ft Ibs pit stop, impact wrench – designed to remove a single 78mm wheel nut within a split second. And it is one thing to produce Air Tools with ultra high capacity impact torque, but another to provide the matching quality to sustain this type of work load – SP does both.
SP air wrenches will outlast the competition due to their unique high strength impact and ratchet mechanisms. Set to take the industrial hand tool industry by storm, SP hand tools offer a unique combination of cutting edge design, premium performance and lifetime quality.
