The 1950s and '60s were an era of performance research.

Chicago Pneumatic drill bits broke depth records approaching 20,000 feet and were used in oil prospecting. The portable broach puller for aircraft rivets was introduced in 1957. A Chicago Pneumatic electric motor played a role in America’s Apollo space mission to the moon. It powered a pump that inflated three bags on the capsule upon its splashdown in the Pacific on July 24, 1969. The bags ensured the escape hatch was on top and the astronauts could open it safely. Chicago Pneumatic introduced in 1969 the world’s first speed ratchet “CP728” at Ford MotorCompany.
