Snap-on has revealed its newest tool which uses infrared technology to diagnose vehicle faults.

Tool franchise Snap-on has launched a brand-new gadget for those in the motor trade, which will help them find and resolve issues quickly and efficiently.

The Diagnostic Thermal Imager Elite uses innovative infrared technology to show technicians heat in the vehicle thats been caused by issues such as friction, electrical resistance and pressure changes, among much more. The new tool will help motor technicians find faults more easily and removes much of the trial and error from fixing particular vehicle faults.

The franchise, which specialises in a wide range of tools, equipment, diagnostics and repair systems primarily in vehicle repair, has launched the handy tool to help technicians work smarter. Key features of the product include the ability to record and take photos before printing them for repair orders, as well as offering reference images within its system so technicians can see what a normal and failed component looks like, allowing them to compare with what they see in front of them.

Images are also uploaded to the cloud via Snap-ons brand new Wi-Fi sharing service,, so that technicians can access them wherever they are. Its hoped that the device will make diagnosing faults easier and quicker, so that vehicles can get back to their owners as soon as possible.

Established in 1920 by Joseph Johnson and William Seidemann, Snap-on has pioneered its interchangeable sockets and wrenches for nearly a century. In the 1950s it diversified into its now signature walk-in tool vans, which provide tools and other equipment to those in the vehicle repair trade and has continued to expand its product range constantly ever since. Now, with over 430 franchisees in the UK and Ireland alone and an enormous range of productivity solutions to make life easier for all manner of technicians, Snap-on has proved that its a company with the power to change with the times.
