Hougen Manufacturing Inc./Trak-Star: OZAT 8-point Impact Sockets

Hougen Manufacturing Inc./Trak-Star

Trak-Star offers OZAT 8-point impact sockets in popular sizes. OZAT sockets have a high degree of durability and reliability due to their design and manufacturing process, the company says. OZAT sockets are manufactured using a state-of-the-art, electro-chemical machining process and an exclusive Less-Stress™ socket design in combination with perfectly matched material selections that provide optimal tool and fastener durability and reliability, the company says. The Less-Stress socket is designed to provide good clearance in the corners and place the load on the flank of the fasteners. This process results in longer fastener and socket life than sockets manufactured using the broaching method, the company says. Trak-Star offers eight sizes in stock from 1-1/4-inch to 2-3/16-inch with other sizes available on special request.
