2 Company ProfileThe company was founded by George A. Sturdevant who was the man who revolutionized the bolting tool industry.Sturdevant is one of the primary individuals responsible for designing and manufacturing the first and original hydraulic torque wrench (1972) and a key contributor to the encyclopedia of the industry: Handbook of Bolts and Bolted JointsFASTORQ designs, manufactures, tests and calibrates precision crafted tools that are easy to use and maintain.FASTORQ’s highly skilled team of engineers and bolting application experts give timely resolutions to job-site challengers of all sizes on both land and sea.
3 Industry SupportFASTORQ supports the industries they serve. FASTORQ and its team members are proud members of the following industry organizations:American Society of Mechanical EngineersMarine Technology SocietySociety of Petroleum EngineersAmerican National Standards InstituteHouston Intercontinental Chamber of CommercePetroleum Equipment Suppliers AssociationASTM InternationalAmerican Nuclear Society
4 Advanced Technology Wrench The patented technology of the SpinTORQ wrench provides a 360-degree continuous rotation to create speed and accuracy with little effort.SpinTORQ • 36 times faster than standard technology ratcheting wrenches• Fully reversible, full power in both directions• Operates in tight spaces• Manual or robotic control• Durable stainless steel body• Torque Range 200 – 7,000 ft-lbs• Five motor sizes, ten wrench sizes• Stack Sockets & Inserts
5 SpinTORQ Patented Technology All hydraulic wrenches offered by competitors today are referred to as a Ratcheting design. A Ratcheting design means that a hydraulic cylinder indexes the tool head in short strokes which turns the nuts only 1 or 2 flats. The tools hydraulic cylinder must then retract and repeat the process. This is a very time consuming methodology to tighten bolts. The SpinTORQ wrenches are a constant rotation design, which is far superior in terms of both speed and accuracy. When tightening bolts, one of the biggest issues that need to be understood is thread friction. There are two types of friction that nuts and bolts are subjected to; Break Away friction and Sliding friction.Break Away friction is the friction required to get the nut rotating. Sliding friction is the force required to keep it sliding. Break Away friction produces considerably higher stress on the bolting materials than Sliding Friction.
6 SpinTORQ Patented Technology Every small incremental stroke of a standard ratcheting tool must first overcome Break Away friction and these continuously repeated high frictions can adversely effect the bolting materials and many times give erroneous and incorrect readings to the tools instrumentation.With the SpinTORQ technology, the nuts and bolts experience the Break Away friction only once and deal with sliding friction up until the required load is achieved.With multiple units installed on alternating bolts, the entire flange or heat exchanger can be simultaneously tightened to full load in two simple passes and a fraction of the time of the old ratcheting designs.This produces far better accuracy and significantly less frictional stress on the nuts and bolts. Additionally, the sealing element will be accurately loaded across its entire sealing surface at one time and not in opposing incremental steps. The equipment is back in service in significantly less time with a greatly reduced possibility of flange distortion, flange rotation and/or sealing element damage
7 SpinTORQ Patented Technology Another issue with theratcheting design tools is, ifyou want to back off a nut orloosen a bolt, you mustcompletely remove thehydraulic wrench, then flip itupside down and reinstall it.Ratcheting wrenches are heavy and the maintenance people are many times working in somewhat precarious areas or positions which make lifting and flipping over heavy wrenches with hydraulic hoses attached to them a potentially dangerous situation.The SpinTORQ design is reversible, with a simple flip of a switch, the wrench reverses automatically. This saves a significant amount of time and is far safer for the service people. Once customers are introduced to SpinTORQ technology, all other bolting methods seem“Old School” by comparison.

23 ZipNut TechnologyFASTORQ is the exclusive manufacturer of ZipNut® technology for the energy and exploration industries. Originally developed for NASA’s space shuttle missions, ZipNut technology is now applied on terra firma in a wide variety of industries and in applications where speed, accuracy, and reliability are not only vital, but often life-saving.Threads have their benefits: they are stronger, more reliable, and allow for minute measurement changes. However, threaded connections have drawbacks. They can be cumbersome, unreliable, and may lead to repetitive motion injury. ZipNut is a revolutionary approach to threaded connections — offering all the benefits but none of the shortfalls and the added enhancement of speed. ZipNuts, or connections that use ZipNut technology, are built with thread segments that are separate from each other. These segments are encased and located on a ramp that force the segments into the threads of the partner connector, whether it be the male or female, i.e. nut or bolt. The tighter you pull, the harder it grips
24 ZipNut Technology at a glance Fast: simply push on and pull off, no twisting and turning.Efficient: self-aligning design eliminates cross threading, time and labor costs are reduced.Safe: robotic adaptability eliminates the need for human exposure to hazardous environments.Durable: all parts are stainless steel, nickel-plated or coated for corrosion protection.
