Snap-on Industrial has expanded its line of 3/4in Drive Flank Drive impact sockets and combination wrenches.

Both products are used in power generation, wind power, oil-and-gas and industrial markets, along with fleet maintenance and other applications where large fasteners are required.

The 3/4in Drive Flank Drive impact socket offering for shallow six-point and shallow 12-point fractional sockets now incorporates sizes from 9/16in to 2 3/8in; deep six-point sockets extend from 9/16in to 2in.

For metric sockets, shallow six-point sizes range from 17mm to 50mm; deep six-point sizes extend from 17mm to 41mm.

Standard-length 12-point Flank Drive combination wrenches extend from 1/4in to 3 1/2in.

Snap-on Industrial impact sockets are heat treated to optimise impact service life.

With a lower hardness than hand sockets, these sockets are built to withstand the repeated cycling loads of impact wrenches.

The company uses a proprietary blend of alloy socket steel, which is claimed to provide long life and strength.

The Snap-on Flank Drive wrenching system delivers up to 20 per cent more turning power without slipping or rounding versus conventional hex designs, according to the company.

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 Flank Drive sockets exceed ANSI performance standards; Snap-on Flank Drive combination wrenches meet or exceed ANSI/ASME StandardB107, 100-2002 and Aerospace Standard AS954E 3.8.1.
