About Elijah Tooling

Our History

Elijah Tooling is the products company spawned by Nissi Industrial Technologies, at that time a nine year old firm that specialized in multi-axis NC programming. The old saying that "Necessity is the mother of invention" certainly applied in the history of the Invert-A-Bolt™ fastener. The Nissi Industrial Technologies Numerical Control Programmers sought to use a back-bolt in their programming, but could find no interest from their small to medium sized customers, due to the difficulty of developing the process to create a back-bolt. The Invert-A-Bolt™ fastener was conceived out of the desire to purchase and use an off-the-shelf backbolt, however, none was available in the market. With this impetus, work was begun on a design. The pervasive desire on the part of the designers was not only to produce an off-the-shelf back-bolt, but to multiply its benefits by "building in" additional qualities that would make it superior to the venerable back bolt. For example, the ability to repair or replace the fastener without pulling the plate. The Invert-A-Bolt™ fastener was born out of this effort. Shortly after designing and prototyping the first Invert-A-Bolt™ fastener Elijah Tooling, Inc. applied for and obtained its first patent. Since that humble beginning whole systems of workholding have been developed around this unique fastener with accompanying patents or patents pending. We continue to improve and expand our product offerings as well as focusing on the development of better and more efficient ways to hold and locate during manufacture.

Ever had an epiphany? That moment of sheer enlightenment when you just knew what to do and how to do it? That’s what happened to us here at Elijah Tooling, back in the late 1990’s when we first concepted, prototyped and started using the venerable Invert-A-Bolt™ fastener. What could be easier, we thought? It fit so well with what we are about.

For over two decades now, Elijah Tooling has partnered with manufacturers to significantly improve their ability to compete by providing services and products that reduce setup time, reduce fixturing costs, simplify workholding and minimize cycle time.

Our expertise centers around modular work holding solutions, which promote flexibility, interchangeability, precision and speedy change-overs.

Our roots go back to the days when NC programmers used APT. We’ve seen a lot of changes over the years as well as contributing to these innovations, but we still focus on getting the job right, on time and at the lowest possible cost.

Our mission is to be an asset to growing manufacturers to be a first choice - as the need for innovative tooling solutions grows day by day. Although the unique patented Invert-a-Bolt™ work holding fasteners makes a significant contribution to our product offerings, we continue to develop and bring to market other products that can meet the needs of nimble manufacturers.
