Impact Driver – Male Hex Bit
All of our standard male impact bit designs are made from solid heat treated alloy steel with industrial black finish (no 2pc designs), for superior rigidity and virtually no loss of impact torque. Other multi-piece designs are prone to lose impact force as it passes thru each mating joint in the assembly. By using a solid piece design we eliminate these power losses and concentrate maximum torque delivery to the bolt head, where it is most needed for break outs and proper tightening of high-strength fasteners.
The most rigid drive connection you can use will provide you with the least torque loss, and deliver the torque you were expecting to apply with your impact wrench. Using industrial duty one piece impact drivers provide higher loading efficiency, so by default all our make impact driver bits are single piece styles, including all shapes and common lengths plus our non-sparking male impact driver bits and stainless steel impact drivers alike. We avoid welding or brazing of any kind, so that the physical integrity of our impact drivers is of the highest caliber. One exception to using strictly 1pc designs, was developed by request, to produce our special purpose quick change, long-reach designs with replaceable self-locking bits, which feature a tight fitting self-locking replaceable bit as an intended feature of the design. Other shapes of large male bit drivers such as 12-point, clutch drive and other custom shapes are available by request if size and quantity meet feasible minimums. At present we do not offer Torx™ drive bits, as for the larger sizes we work with, Torx™ is an extremely very low volume product which requires substantial licensing fees to produce, which are not currently justified by low demand. Most other shapes not covered by patents are readily available in quantities and sizes viable for production runs in as few as 1pc if needed.
