KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brunson Instrument Company today announced the new Brunson TetraLock product line is available for shipping worldwide. The original TetraLock set a new standard in lightweight industrial metrology stands with a pre-stressed tetrahedron design, a pyramid-like structure known for its ultimate stability. The Brunson TetraLock and TetraLock Lite Stands are made from aluminum and stainless steel, and include a choice of thread mount, pad feet, and a duffel style carrying bag. These portable stands can be checked as luggage or stowed in the trunk, and used on tables or platforms. Brunson is the leading provider of "Made in the USA" industrial stands, tripods, and accessories for the global metrology marketplace. A product video can be found at

TetraLock industrial stands are ideal for portable coordinate measuring machines (PCMMs) and survey instrumentation weighing up to 125 lbs., such as articulating arms, projectors, scanners, theodolites, total stations, and more. Engineered for extreme stability, the TetraLock stand weighs just over 20 lbs. with a maximum height of 47 inches and maximum footprint of 50 inches. The TetraLock Lite stand is an economical option for customers who do not require the ultimate rigidity of the TetraLock stand, but appreciate its ease of use and portability. This featherweight stand weighs in at 16.2 lbs. with a maximum height of 47 inches. Both designs offer the best price/performance ratio in the marketplace.

"For more than 80 years, measurement professionals have trusted Brunson industrial stands for their high value, precision metrology instruments," states Matt Settle, Product Manager. "The new TetraLock product line raises the bar in form, function and portability for metrology applications in aerospace, automotive, scientific, power generation, process mills, marine and petrochemical. High quality, stability, and competitive price make TetraLock a very attractive offering to the industrial marketplace."

TetraLock stands are designed for easy transport on the plant floor with a simple, fast setup. Cross braces rotate down and snap into place, forcing the stand's legs to open and lock against a positive stop. The legs are then secured with knurled, collet-type clamps. The TetraLock Lite stand deploys even faster by tightening a locking plate under its mounting ring. Each stand is collapsible for storage, yet has no movement within its joints when locked in the open position. To reach the desired height, a technician uses quick-action cam levers to lock or release the stand's telescoping legs with handy index marks to guide the process. Optional accessories such as the new Brunson EasyConnect™, wheels, and pointed feet are also available. The new products can be ordered by contacting
