Did you know that HYTORC, a manufacturer of hydraulic and electric torque wrenches, also offers sockets? HYTORC sockets are ISO 8001 quality certified and ISO 14001 certified for environmental management systems.
HYTORC ensures the latest technology is used to calculate the optimal socket configurations. For example, breaking and tensile strength, material fatigue, and resistance to wear are verified on test equipment. Stress simulations also include nut-running elements and fasteners to ensure reliability.
Additionally, each batch of HYTORC sockets is tested for hardness. A versatile heat treatment department fully equipped for tempering, annealing, casehardening, nitro-carburizing, nitride hardening, and carbonitriding secures the ideal properties for each component.
Most recently, HYTROC has launched a new socket coating, ECO LINE, developed with the aim to ensure sustainability through an environmentally friendly manufacturing process. Previously, black oxide has been the most common coating used on impact sockets because paint and chromium are not approved by ISO standards. Years of research and testing have provided that ECO LINE, with its light silver hue, meets or exceeds all the performance characteristics of previous products.
An added benefit of ECO LINE is an improved observation of the socket rotation and code stamping when used by the operator in cramped and poorly lit surroundings.
