Securely fasten screws with the correct bit for the job. These bits are designed for the high-precision and high-torque requirements of production lines while lowering the overall costs of production. With the correct alloys, heat treatment, and improved designs, bits can last longer and do less damage to screw heads. There is a multitude of bit types for any kind of application available, from general purpose Phillips to tamper-proof Tri-Wings.
Industrial grade impact sockets are available in a wide range of lengths and wall thickness and with single or double hex openings. Square drive openings are available in select sizes. Options with magnets, surface drive, and lead-in sockets are available to suit the needs of the production line. Increase safety in the assembly line by using covered safety sockets to significantly reduce or eliminate pinch points when operators are using gloves.
Custom Bits & Sockets
There are applications where the standard drive tool is not the correct solution, and there needs to be a custom drive tool required instead. Together, we can discuss your needs for your application and find you an answer. These custom drive tools include grease fitting sockets, double-ended bits, tap holding sockets, and plunger-style sockets. The production lines that need these are typically have automated torque drivers or workers using torque drivers to fasten down threaded fasteners quickly.
Automated processes sometimes use these custom drive tools because it is easier and faster to program simple tool paths with a custom drive tool is used. In production lines with people, it is quicker to use a powered torque driver rather than hand tools. And these powered torque drivers must accommodate what the hand tool was able to do.
Adapters & Extensions
Limited access areas require tools that can be used to reach the fasteners there but still be able to torque the fastener sufficiently. Extensions give operators the ability to reach these fasteners quickly. Adapters allow the use of sockets in other square drive sizes without having to purchase a duplicate tool for that square drive size. Swivel adapters can allow operators to reach fasteners in out-of-reach.
