Snap-On Tools expands offering of flank drive impact sockets

Feb. 3, 2010

Snap-On Tools has expanded its offering of heavy duty 3/4 inch flank drive impact sockets by providing nearly 50 new sockets.

The impact sockets are heat-treated with a lower hardness than hand sockets, and are able to handle repeated cycling loads of impact wrenches.

“Snap-on uses a proprietary blend of special alloy socket steel that provides long life and superior strength,” said Scott Amundson, Snap-On product manager. “Our flank drive wrenching system delivers up to 20 percent more turning power without slipping or rounding while exceeding ANSI performance standards.”
