Original Press Release:

Vise Grip Pliers in Stainless Steel Are Exclusive to Aven, Inc.

ANN ARBOR, MI - Vise Grip Locking Pliers now are part of an extensive selection of stainless steel industrial hand tools available from Aven, Inc. Three models of the versatile pliers with a classic trigger release are designed for equipment installation and maintenance in sterile environments where it's critical to avoid rust, chrome particles and other contamination. Aven is the only supplier of Vise Grip Pliers not made from carbon alloy steel. All sizes of the polished pliers have rounded edges, recessed stainless steel rivets and a smooth-gliding locking and opening action for easy one-handed use. Jaws are made from Grade 420 stainless steel, providing hardness and tensile strength. Springs and body are Grade 304 non-magnetic stainless steel. The handle's pressure-adjusting screw locks the straight or long-nose jaws in a vise-like grip for welding, bending metal, clamping wood and holding items for drilling or cutting. The pliers also are ideal for extracting broken bolts or screws. Aven, a manufacturer and global supplier of precision instruments, provides these choices:
o 9-inch with straight jaws that are 35 millimeters long (1.37 inches)
o 7-inch with slightly smaller straight jaws
o 6-inch long nose version with thin 42-millimeter jaws (1.65 inches) for access in tight spaces. Also practical for holding and twisting wire. Each type resists corrosion from moisture and mild acids or alkaloids. That's why stainless steel tools are the best-practice standard for critical environments where ferrous contamination risks must be minimized. Aven's durable pliers, which can be autoclaved, are suitable for use in medical device manufacturing, electronics manufacturing, biotechnology, hospitals, food processing, pharmaceutical labs or plants, aerospace facilities, research centers and chemical production. The 27-year-old old industrial and scientific supplier, based in Southeast Michigan, also offers dozens of other stainless steel pliers and cutters. For more information, call Aven at (734) 973-0099.
