The Facom brand is
Ideal for working in dark or poorly lit areas, Facom fluorescent tools can be detected from 5 metres away with their fluorescence, which can be activated by a lamp or by an ultraviolet neon. The Facom catalogue proposal includes practical and ergonomic tools for all uses: screwdrivers and sockets,
From an ergonomic point of view, they are exactly the same as traditional tools, with the same grip: they are characterized only by fluorescence and material. The general benefits of using fluorescent tools include improved productivity and reduced costs: they are easier to track and identify, they are compatible with the storage modules in the workshop trolleys, and they are easier to clean. It is more unusual to lose these tools, which reduces overall costs. One of the most successful tools in the Mister Worker™ catalogue is the Facom Protwist 1000V
What are the Facom non-sparking tools (or explosion-proof tools)? These tools are the result of work requirements in areas with a risk of ignition or explosion, for example on an oil platform: the fall of a traditional tool could generate sparks that would endanger the safety of the working environment and professionals. This is due to the material, generally steel alloys. It is
Facom Explosion Proof tools are non-magnetic, suitable for use in flammable or explosive environments: for example, in the mining industry, oil and gas extraction, refineries and petrochemical industry, maintenance of oil and gas pipelines, power generation, but also in shipyards and aeronautical sites. All areas in which traditional steel instrumentation is unsuitable, due to shocks, rubbing or falls that could generate sparks.
In order to make the best use of a non-sparking tool, it is essential to clean it carefully: the equipment must be devoid of rust and ferrous contaminants. Also, it should be kept in mind that explosion-proof tools are not enough to protect you from an outbreak: you need suitable clothing and materials, gloves and protective glasses. It is also necessary to avoid using these instruments in the presence of acetylene, which causes a risk of sparks, and to ensure that the surface temperature of the tool does not exceed the ignition temperature of the current gas. For more information, please refer to our article on Facom explosion-proof tools.
Facom's special tools include the RFID instrument, which means tools with Radio Frequency Identification. These tools can be tracked remotely via an electronic chip encapsulated in each tool. RFID technology uses radio signal emitter propagation technology, so no energy battery is required for these tools. RFID chips are invisible and
By using the RFID Detection Bag you can easily check the status and order of your tools, increasing safety and productivity. It is an independent and mobile container with a capacity of up to 50 tools. Equipped with a screen, keyboard and software with simplified database management, the inventory of tools in the Detection Bag becomes automatic. It is also a practical solution for mobility, being a soft, wheeled bag, and is equipped with a padlock. Every time the bag is opened, closed or moved, an automatic scanning process is started, making it easier to find all your tools and maintain them in order. In short, RFID technology allows your instruments to improve the quality of the entire work system.
Facom ensures the safety of people working in height with the line of SLS tools: Safety Lock System. These tools are designed to be hooked, with rings and straps, to your safety harness, to make them safe and prevent them from falling. Falling a tool represents a serious risk for the safety of workers and the environment, as well as having financial and productivity repercussions. It is necessary to go looking for the tool, with consequent loss of time and performance.
Facom has designed an ideal solution for this type of work to guarantee work safety at height: the Safety Lock System ring device, with a metal chosen to ensure solidity, resistance to impacts and to extreme temperatures. The rings made by Facom are tested to withstand at least twice the weight of the tool: the French brand assembles the rings in its factories with subjugated presses that guarantee perfect seaming. It is worth highlighting the excellent ergonomics of the Facom solutions: for example, in the case of wrenches, the SLS ring slides from side to side to allow free and practical use both of the fork and the eyelet, as well as the handles of the
