It's a Digital Torque Wrench. Solair Group the Tooling experts!! :)
It's a torque wrench. But, I can't tell if it's in a fixture or storage mount.
The question should have been about the assortment of crimpers in the back.
Judging the scale from the pin and socket crimpers behind it, it must be the new undersized Branson reverse ratchiting Mars rocket door handle.
That's a bench mount for a digital torque wrench. The wrench can then be used to measure the torque applied from another tool.
It's a torque wrench calibrator/tester.
It looks like a torque wrench or torque indicator used to check, calibrate, or set up other (torque) wrenches; possibly even the hand devices on the table behind the device in question.
