What do “makeup” and “breakout” mean?
Simply put, ‘makeup’ is the process of fastening tools together and ‘breakout’ is the process of unfastening tools, i.e. “breaking” them apart. Manual tongs or pipe wrenches are frequently used for such operations and can be very dangerous. Manual tongs and wrenches can break and can cause serious injury (or worse). We use multiple sizes and configurations of hydraulic tongs (or makeup/breakout machines) that service multiple tool orientations sizes and levels of torque. Machines are compact and portable, and do not need to be mounted or secured to any surface, unlike traditional breakout machines.
