IMS Co. (Chagrin Falls, OH) introduced its Economy Bronze Sprue Puller tools, a 10-piece tool set with time- and money-saving hand tools that enable workers to operate with their preferred tool size and type.
The bronze design keeps the tools rigid and prevents sloppiness and joint weakening as they wear, two major problems of inferior designs. Every tool has a natural contoured grip and an anti-slip texture on the handles to increase comfort and maneuverability for users. The adjustable and non-adjustable pliers and side cutter come in 6- and 8-inch sizes.
These Economy Bronze Sprue Puller tools prioritize safety in operational procedures, because bronze eliminates the threat of sparking in areas of the shop where ignition hazards may be present. The kit’s functional, rigid components and bronze design help workers improve their accuracy as well as reduce the chances of scratches and nicks during mold adjustments or sprue and part pulling.
In addition to the tools mentioned above, the tool set includes 8-in. needle-nose and 45° pliers, a 9-in. pincer plier and a 10-in. tongue-and-groove plier.
