Milwaukee has introduced a new set of Shockwave impact duty 6 point socket sets. The big feature on these are the stamped and ink filled markings on the barrels of the sockets which Milwaukee claims is the boldest and longest lasting markings on sockets according to them. Stamped markings do last longer than regular ink markings as ink markings can easily scrape off over time from regular use. These stamped markings are filled with a bit of ink which is where the boldness in their statement comes from as regular stamped markings though long lasting don’t stand out unless they are inked. The ink helps the markings stand out. These new impact rated sockets are for a wide range of socket drives including ¼”, 3/8”, ½”, ¾”, and 1” drives. They will launch as early as May 2021. Check out their press release below for more info.

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool continues to deliver ground-breaking accessory solutions with the introduction of the SHOCKWAVE IMPACT DUTY 6 Point Socket Lineup, available in ¼”, 3/8”, ½”, ¾”, and 1” drives. Engineered for use with impact wrenches, drivers, and ratchets, this new line of sockets features the boldest, longest-lasting markings and extreme impact durability to withstand high torque applications.
The SHOCKWAVE IMPACT DUTY Sockets provide maximum wear resistance with stamped and ink-filled size markings, making it easier for users to select the right socket for their application throughout the entire life of the socket. Constructed with high-strength forged steel, these sockets deliver optimized performance in heavy-duty applications, and a non-slip hex geometry prevents socket and fastener rounding. For easy socket attachment and removal, the sockets are complete with a dual-hole design and ring groove.
Completing the SHOCKWAVE IMPACT DUTY offering, Milwaukee® offers impact socket accessories including socket extensions, universal joints, adapters, and reducers. The impact socket extensions allow access in hard-to-reach places, while universal joints feature a 15 or 25-degree swivel to provide users with better access. For maximum versatility, impact socket adapters and reducers allow users to convert their tool for usage with different drive size sockets. The SHOCKWAVE IMPACT DUTY accessories are available in ¼”, 3/8”, ½”, ¾”, and 1” drive sizes. Retaining Rings feature a one-piece design and are made of a flexible rubber material for hassle-free installation on the sockets.
To accommodate a user’s socket storage needs, Milwaukee® Socket Rails utilize removeable end caps with interchangeable socket rail clips compatible with all ¼”, 3/8”, and ½” drive chrome and impact sockets.
