This is the history of a pioneering range, which is the result of the great tradition of tailored innovations of One-Too. As with all the products designed and manufactured by One-Too in half a century, Moment Alpha® was born out of the need stated by one of our customers from Formula 1 racing at the end of the 1990s.
Our role turned out to be decisive, in view of all the requirements of that sport, particularly in terms of performance, reliability and safety.
The need stated by the customer ? Finding a tool that is as reliable as it is precise and compact, that can reach into the narrowest part of the car and offers the possibility to implement one or more tightening strategies at the elastic limit of materials.
At the time, it was very difficult to grasp that elastic limit precisely; screwing was carried out approximately in the absence of suitable tools. But in motor sports, precision is a decisive factor for claiming victory. One-Too was able to rise to the challenge with all its employees.
The very first flexible angle torque wrench in the market After several hundreds of hours spent with their thinking caps on, our designers were proud to release the first flexible electronic angle torque wrench in the market in 2001, named Moment Alpha®.
While the Moment Alpha® solution has developed further since then, its ancestor already had all the key features to which it owes its success today: a compact, rugged and lightweight wrench connected to an ergonomic user interface (UI) that can cover a wide measurement range in screwdriver and wrench modes, using dedicated accessories.
The product appealed to F1 and the WRC: Moment Alpha® allows them to optimise the tightening of the different components of the vehicle. As the collaboration went on, the solution developed and even acquired new markets such as aviation, particularly for jet engine assembly.Today, Moment Alpha® is a range and a fully-fledged make.
With products and software adapted to each need, Moment Alpha® covers maintenance, production and quality control and is suited to all companies that carry out assembly as part of their production process.
