TORX PLUS® Fastener Drive Systems

The TORX PLUS® Drive was designed to enhance assembly line performance. Manufacturers all over the world have realized significant improvements and cost savings by switching to the TORX PLUS® Drive. Since its introduction, TORX PLUS® Drive has consistently outperformed every other drive system. Its longer tool life and optimal torque transfer have enhanced product reliability, increased productivity, and reduced total assembly costs on assembly lines in a multitude of industries.

THE SOLUTION TO YOUR ASSEMBLY PROBLEMS

Since its introduction, TORX PLUS® Drive has consistently outperformed every other drive system. Its longer tool life and optimal torque transfer have enhanced product reliability, increased productivity, and reduced total assembly costs on assembly lines in a multitude of industries around the world.

Elliptically-based Geometry

  • Broadens contact surface to maximize engagement of driver and recess
  • Eliminates damaging point-to-point contact

0° Drive Angle

  • Optimizes torque transmission
  • Virtually eliminates radial stresses to increase tool bit life
  • Allows use of thinner-walled recesses

Six Lobes With Large Cross-Sectional Areas

  • Allows faster tool engagement
  • Maximizes torque transfer
  • Increases torsional strength

Vertical Sidewalls & Reduced Recess Fallaway

  • Increases tool engagement
  • Virtually eliminates camout
  • Ensures proper torque transfer
  • Greatly reduces end load requirements
  • Minimizes tool slippage and damage it can cause
  • Can reduce fatigue and muscular stress during manual assembly of fasteners

Greatly Increased Strength and Reliability

  • 100% average improvement in driver bit life; many users of the TORX PLUS® Drive System have driven 2 to 10 times more fasteners per drive tool
  • 25% average improvement in driver bit torsional strength
  • Increased bit strength allows for higher removal torque capability

Inch & Metric In One Drive Tool

  • Same-sized drive tool seats both inch- and metricsized fasteners
  • Add or convert to metrics without a tooling change
  • Reduce the number of tools required by field service personnel

Compatible with TORX® Drive for Field Service

  • TORX Drive tools can be used to remove and reinstall TORX PLUS® Drive recess fasteners

PERFECT FOR HIGH – SPEED ASSEMBLY LINES

Difficulty in aligning the drive bit and the recess can force an assembly line to slow down to assure proper fastening.

AUTOSERT® FEATURE – THE HIGH PRODUCTIVITY
ANSWER TO HIGH RPM ENGAGEMENT

The compound angle ramps of the AUTOSERT feature guide the driver bit into the recess, creating a selfcentering and engaging action. It’s the perfect solution for automated, robotic and other assembly situations where the driver bit is continuously rotating.

  • Allows for higher rpm engagement
  • Speeds engagement
  • Reduces assembly time
  • Increases productivity

Enlarged window of engagement improves drive bit alignment in offset and off-angle conditions

  • Eases starting
  • Eliminates need to slow down driver bit

Lobe Engagement

  • Increases tool life – during beta site testing, a manufacturer achieved reduced drive bit usage at over 1500 rpm
  • Eliminates camout debris

TORX PLUS® DRIVE SURPASSES THE COMPETITION

What is your most annoying fastening problem? Damaged applications? Constantly changing tool bits? Perhaps your current system solves one problem, only to cause another.
