Snap on Tools Catalog English CAT1300 : Page 1

In 1920, with the turn of a socket wrench, Joe Johnson revolutionized the tool industry. His ingenious “5 Do the Work of 50” interchangeable sockets and handles set a new standard – and Snap-on has been innovating ever since. From a rented building in Milwaukee, Johnson and his colleague Bill Seidemann agreed: interchangeable sockets had the potential for unrivaled productivity. And so, Snap-on Wrench Company was born. They teamed with Stanton Palmer and Newton Tarble, the pioneers of direct sales and delivery of tools to mechanics at their place of business. Today, Snap-on is poised to spearhead innovation well into the 21st century. And, with roots still frmly planted here at home, we’ll continue to defne the cutting edge: by creating unique productivity solutions for techs and professionals in critical industries around the globe. 1980s SNAP-ON DEVELOPS COLD-FORMED ALLOY STEEL TECHNOLOGY FOR SOCKETS; HANDHELD DIAGNOSTIC TOOL MT2500, “THE BRICK,” IS LAUNCHED 2000s DUAL 80™ RATCHETING TECHNOLOGY INTRODUCED; EPIQ, A POWERED TOOL STORAGE SYSTEM, IS CREATED 1970s SNAP-ON PIONEERS AIR-POWERED RATCHETS WITH INTRODUCTION OF THE PATENTED FAR70 1990s ® FLANKDRIVE PLUS (WITH 40% GREATER TURNING POWER) INTRODUCED; SNAP-ON PATENTS A 3D VISUAL ALIGNMENT SYSTEM 2010s SURETRACK ® – EXPERT INFORMATION SYSTEM WITH REAL FIXES AND VERIFIED PARTS REPLACEMENT RECORDS FROM MILLIONS OF SUCCESSFUL REPAIR ORDERS
