The wrench is a multipurpose tool that's used in a variety of consumer and commercial applications. The following two reports take a closer look at the global wrench market and where it's headed.
A wrench is a handheld tool that's used for applying torque -- rotational force -- to a fastener like a nut or bolt. Also known as a spanner in the United Kingdom, it's become an essential tool in the construction, automotive and manufacturing industry. Countless companies in these and other industries use wrenches to secure fasteners.
There are dozens of types of wrenches, however, each of which has a different purpose.
The open-end wrench, for instance, features a one-piece design with a U-shaped handle at both ends. When placed on a fastener, the open-end wrench can be used to tighten or loosen the fastener. There's also a combination wrench that features a U-shaped handle at one end and an spanner handle at the other end.
The open-end wrench and combination wrench are just two of many different types of wrenches. Others include the box-end wrench, flare-nut wrench, ratcheting box wrench, flex-head wrench, self-adjusting wrench, socket wrench, pipe wrench and more.
