Press Release -"Professionals
in the aviation sector must face up to the problem of tool
losses, often representing up to 20% of annual equipment
replacement. This mislaying of tools in the structure of aircraft
being assembled or during maintenance operations has an influence
on tool renewal costs. But most importantly, it can have an
adverse effect on aircraft operating safety. Aviation companies
thus often put in place severe policies on stock monitoring and
FOD (Foreign Object Debris/Damage) procedures permitting
detection and reduction in the number of forgotten tools. It was
crucial to find a solution that was both simple and ingenious,
ensuring maximum safety after aircraft assembly and maintenance
Facom, the European leader in
professional hand tools, always wanting to provide innovative
solutions to its customers, is the first company to respond to
this particular request and launch its first range of fluorescent
tools. Facom has designed the first fluorescent color tools
detectable with ultraviolet lamps or neons in the dark or shadowy
zones of aircraft. These new fluo yellow color tools make it easy
and quick to search and detect the equipment used. They reinforce
safety by avoiding equipment being left behind.
Currently, Facom offers a range of 400+
tools that will be progressively extended.....sockets, wrenches,
ratchets, screwdrivers, pliers, hex keys, rulers, hammers &
punches, etc. These tools have the same strength and comfort
qualities than classic tools used in all workshops. The added
fluorescent color has been designed to adapt to each of them. The
products are made in the groups factories in France.
The fluorescent tools provide a new
solution to professionals, whether in the aviation field or in
other key sectors like nuclear and the military."
