  • Publication number: 20230013688
    Abstract: An anvil for an impact mechanism, where the anvil includes wings that taper at a taper angle of about 5 degrees to about 30 degrees. The anvil may also include a shaft extending from the wings, and a drive end adapted to transfer and apply torque to a work piece. The wings of the anvil also include wing impact surfaces that receive rotational impact forces from a hammer. For example, the hammer contacts and applies torque to the wings of the anvil.

  • Publication number: 20220176523
    Abstract: An impact mechanism for a rotary impact tool including a centering component, a gear carrier adapted to receive rotational force from the motor and including a gear carrier aperture adapted to receive the centering component, an anvil rotatable about the central axis and including an impact section and an anvil aperture adapted to receive the centering component, and a hammer slidably coupled to the gear carrier, rotatable about a central axis, and defining a planar surface, the hammer including a lug extending from the planar surface. The centering component functions as a pilot between the gear carrier and anvil. The centering component can include an axial bore. Axial clearance and a slip-fit can be provided between the gear carrier and the centering component and between the anvil and the dowel to allow the hollow dowel to move axially.
