Torque is our only business.

Established 1980 - hydraulic drilling machinery worldwide

SafeLatch™ Torque Arms

SafeLatch torque arms quickly latch and unlatch from wire ropes. Double latches and double locks.

No tools, lost parts, or falling objects.

Pulling the handles unlocks and unlatches allowing the assembly to swing open.

Just open SafeLatch, swing onto the wire rope, and latch closed. Takes a few seconds.

Production will start soon and will be standard with the XK-100 and XK-150.  We're fighting supply chain  issues with aluminum alloy castings.

After production begins, you may order separately to update your existing XK swivels.

Hardened and plated steel sheaves with oil-less bronze bushings require no lubrication and are now available from stock. Direct replacement for original plastic sheaves.

ScopeDown™ Torque Track

Works with any telescoping doubles mast, rig floors to 40' high.

Telescoping track scopes up and down with mast.  No rig-down required.

Track lays down with mast for travel.  No rig-down required.

Swivel may be repositioned toward front or driller side V-door location.  No rig-down required.

Track fits both XK-100 and XK-150 swivels.  To change swivel, no rig-down required.

Torque reacts into carrier structure thru Mantis Reactor™.  Zero torque into mast.  Rated for 12,000 ft-lbs.

Engineered to API-8C & API-Q1, safety factor 3:1 min.
