How to control force and reduce sleeve and thread wear

In daily maintenance and manufacturing work, impact sockets have become one of the indispensable tools due to their high efficiency and durability. However, if done incorrectly, it can cause wear problems on the sleeve and threads. Not only does this shorten the life of the tool, but it also affects the accuracy of your work. Therefore, how to balance the use of force has become a skill that every technician must master.
First, it is crucial to choose the correct socket size. A sleeve that tightly fits the workpiece can effectively distribute torque forces and reduce wear on the threads. BOEN kits are available in a variety of sizes, so one piece can meet your needs.

Before use, be sure to carefully inspect the impact sleeve for cracks or signs of wear. Using a damaged sleeve will often damage the threads due to uneven force application.
Select reasonable torque settings according to different bolt and nut materials and specifications. Torque that is too low may not tighten effectively, while torque that is too high may cause thread damage or even breakage.
When operating the impact wrench, make sure to apply force smoothly and keep the sleeve perpendicular to the thread axis. This avoids additional wear on the threads and sleeve caused by improper angles.
Avoid working the impact wrench for long periods of time at high torque settings to avoid damage to the tool or threads due to excessive impact.
Recognize that prompt replacement of an impact socket or wrench that shows obvious wear is an effective way to avoid further damage to the threads.
Through the above practical skills, choosing the appropriate size socket and using the appropriate force can effectively reduce the wear on the thread when using the impact socket, extend the service life of the tool, and also ensure the high efficiency and accuracy of maintenance work. . Remember, behind every operation is the pursuit
