A little bit about the company
Licota is a recognized manufacturer of premium tools for professionals as well as industrial equipment. A relatively young company, which began operations in Taiwan in 1983, together with the American company Parget Industrial, produces a tool whose quality is confirmed by international and Russian certificates.
The production of tools and equipment uses modern technology and development, patented in the United States of America and Germany.
Manufacturers produce tools adapted to the requirements of the country in which they will be used. So, taking into account the peculiarities of use, ratchets supplied to the Russian market have 36 teeth, while Americans prefer this tool with 72 teeth. Chrome vanadium steel is used in the production, but if the tool is subjected to shock loads, then the same alloy with the addition of molybdenum is used for its manufacture.
All metal parts of the tool undergo heat treatment and micro-grinding. Users note the quality of the sharpening of the cutting edges and the wear resistance of the tool even at high loads.
Ergonomic handles made of combination plastic are resistant to aggressive effects of fuels and lubricants and are convenient to use. An incised notch prevents the instrument from slipping out of hand. For composite tools like nippers and pliers, the parts are adjusted so that there is virtually no play, and when closed, there are no gaps between the working wings.
