UC12-Flip book - page 1

striking tools are classified in two categories: direct striking tools
(hammers and mallets) and those designed to pass on stricken force, or indirect
striking tools (chisels, punches and drift pins). Together they are very useful
in industrial applications –machinery, assembly lines, maintenance– and for
automotive service –engines, bodywork, tires.
In addition to the traditional ball pein and claw hammers, striking tools also
feature hammers specially designed to deform, mark or damage stricken objects,
and some others are designed so they do not give off sparks, very useful in
environments where sparks are a risk factor. The materials used to make these
hammers are bronze, aluminum bronze, plastic, and rubber.
There are hammers designed for auto bodywork. They are shaped to fit auto
body parts. This category includes air hammers used for grinding, cutting and
Struck tools include those used for cutting or breaking materials, to mark, to aid in
centering tips, and still others are used to install or remove pins, bolts and rivets. The
latter are made of steel, or bronze if it is required that they do not mark or damage the
stricken material.
This chapter also features punches, used in the perforation or manufacture of washers
made from rubber or any other material used in seals. We also present alignment bars,
used to align or disassemble machinery elements.
