Tools for aircraft construction

Quality for aviation

Tools for aircraft construction


In no other industrial sector are safety and precision more important than in aircraft construction, so the demands on the tools used are correspondingly high. Therefore, the use of high-quality pliers in aviation technology is a logical step for all aircraft manufacturers who want to ensure consistent quality with minimal tolerances.


The materials used in aviation materials are a key factor in determining specific requirements. In order to enable lightweight construction processes, composites are becoming increasingly important in the aircraft industry. This also has a major impact on the choice of the right specialised tools.


In addition to the construction of new aircraft, aircraft maintenance is another area in which precision tools have to convince every day anew. Wheels, for example, are exchanged every 500 flights and engine components after every 1500 landings. Hydraulics is also a regular maintenance topic, for example with regard to the hydraulic pump for retracting and extending the undercarriage.


Whatever is going on at the aircraft yard, one thing is certain: aircraft repair tools have to function precisely and reliably.

With its specially shaped cutting edges, the Collar-Cracker cracks collars made of aluminum, steel and titanium, for example on Hy-Lok screw connections. The angled handles make it easy to access hard-to-reach collars.








Four-mandel crimping pliers


To the product


Four-mandrel crimping pliers in the digital version are a real high-tech tool for turned contacts. The adjustability to crimp dimensions in steps of 0.01 mm makes them indispensable for safety-relevant cabling.



Separation set for cable ties


To the product


Consisting of an electronics diagonal cutter with specially rounded edges and a pliers wrench with cross-serrated gripping surfaces for a good grip, the cable tie cutting set is optimally designed to remove cable ties from cable harnesses. The two handy pliers do not damage the cables.
