Snap-on Industrial has expanded its line of Dr. Flank Drive impact sockets and combination wrenches
Snap-on Industrial has expanded its line of ¾-inch Dr. Flank Drive impact sockets and combination wrenches. The ¾-inch Dr. Flank Drive impact socket offering for shallow six-point and shallow 12-point fractional sockets now incorporates sizes from 9/16 inch to 2 3/8 inches; deep six-point sockets extend from 9/16 inch to 2 inches. For metric sockets, shallow six-point sizes range from 17 millimeters to 50 millimeters; deep six-point sizes extend from 17 millimeters to 41 millimeters. Standard-length 12-point Dr. Flank Drive combination wrenches extend from ¼ inch to 3 ½ inches.
Snap-on Industrial impact sockets are heat treated to optimize impact service life. With a lower hardness than hand sockets, these sockets are built to withstand the repeated cycling loads of impact wrenches. Snap-on Industrial uses a proprietary blend of alloy socket steel that provides long life and great strength.
The Snap-on Dr. Flank Drive wrenching system delivers up to 20% more turning power without slipping or rounding versus conventional hex designs. The Snap-on wrenching system moves the contact point away from the corner of the fastener with a radius, which promotes flat-to-flat surface contact for added turning power.
Snap-on Industrial Dr. Flank Drive sockets exceed ANSI performance standards; Dr. Flank Drive combination wrenches meet or exceed ANSI/ASME StandardB107, 100-2002 and Aerospace Standard AS954E 3.8.1.
