Soft Blow hammers are useful in that they transmit the full force of the blow without damaging the struck part. They act as a shock absorber by bearing the brunt of the blow. These hammers are also comparatively noiseless ensuring silence in otherwise nosiy workshops where steel against steel is used. Further, they are also non-spark and therefore quite safe to use in situations where there is a fire risk.
Common applications are as follows:
In parts assembly: To drive stubborn, close-fitting or heavy components together (or apart) without harming them.
For manufacturing: To prevent damage to the products or equipment used in production, decreasing scrap and downtime.
When setting up: To protect edges on tools, punches, or dies; surfaces of fixtures, holders, and other equipment.
Around machines: To safeguard beds, ways, slides, and other fine surfaces critical to the machine's function.
For maintenance: To assure that repairs are made, rather than more problems caused by beating with a hard hammer.
In general: A "soft" blow hammer will reduce repairs, rework, or rejects caused by direct or accidental blows from too "hard" a hammer.
