San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 18, 2012
International Air Tool & Industrial Supply Company, http://www.intlairtool.com, a San Diego, CA based distributor of Ingersoll Rand Air Tools, ARO Diaphragm Pumps, and a variety of Powered and Manual Hoists, has launched a new specialty website focused on the distribution of industrial grade pneumatic tools. The site currently features over 600 models and the firm plans to add 2,400 more by year’s end. Since its inception early last year, International Air Tool (I.A.T.) has remained true to the mantra of "use the right tool for the job" and has helped industrial firms worldwide to source quality pneumatic tools well suited to the tasks at hand. According to the firm's President, Mark Schieber, “International Air Tool Co. makes every effort to thoroughly qualify each and every application that comes across our desk. We don't want to oversell our customers on something that they don't need, but more importantly we want to ensure that the tools we recommend are properly equipped to meet and exceed all customer expectations."
Air tool manufacturers typically divide their wares into two distinct levels of quality. These being automotive / maintenance grade on the lower end, and industrial production grade on the higher end. Automotive tools are built for occasional use and are hence better suited for maintenance or vehicle service type work. Industrial grade tools in contrast, are designed for continuous; day in and day out use in production environments. What differentiates these two grades of tools is the quality of components used during assembly. Automotive tools feature standard duty, cast components that are typically not heat treated during production. Additionally, metals utilized may not be of the finest purity. Industrial grade air tools on the other hand feature heat treated, machined components made from high grade steels, aircraft aluminums and high tech composites.
According to Schieber, “Different applications warrant different grade tools, and there are definitely markets for both automotive and industrial grade air tools”. For shop and garage use, automotive / maintenance grade tools are usually fine. However, in staying true to our commitment to continuous improvement and sustainability, we want to make sure that our clients aren’t burning through 10 automotive tools per month through misapplication. If this is the case, then a simple ROI analysis usually provides justification for an upgrade.” After investing in a production grade tool, that tool can be rebuilt many times over; usually for the nominal cost of a tune up kit.
In addition to Ingersoll Rand Air Tools, International Air Tool Co. offers environmentally friendly diaphragm pumps and industrial grade hoists designed with user safety in mind. ARO Diaphragm Pumps feature bolted construction which stops chemical leakage onto the surrounding area. Ingersoll Rand Hoists feature overload protection which prevents loads from slipping and falling during lifting. Both are examples of the firm’s enduring commitment to sustainability, user safety, and choosing the right tools for the job.
