About Impact Sockets
Impact Sockets are a type of tool used to help professionals work with fasteners, such as nuts and bolts. Impact sockets are designed to be used in conjunction with an impact wrench, which applies a great deal of torque to the socket. This helps loosen stubborn fasteners and makes it easier for professionals to do their jobs.
Types of Impact Sockets
Impact sockets come in many different shapes and sizes depending on the job they are needed for. Flex impact sockets are designed to bend slightly when applying pressure, making them better suited for tight spaces or awkward angles. They also provide more grip on the fastener than standard impact sockets.
How Impact Sockets Are Made
Impact sockets are typically made from hardened steel or chrome molybdenum alloy steel (CR-MO). The material is heat treated and tempered so that it can withstand high levels of torque without breaking or cracking. In addition, they often feature rubberized grips or other anti-slip surfaces to help increase grip strength.
Industries That Use Impact Sockets
Impact sockets are commonly used in automotive repair, construction, plumbing, HVAC maintenance and other industries where there is a need for heavy duty fastening applications. Professionals use them in combination with an impact wrench to quickly loosen stubborn fasteners without damaging them.
