Over the last 40+ years, the TORX® drive system has proven to be a remarkable and reliable drive recess that is found in products all over the world’s marketplace…and it is still growing! But while the product has proven itself, a new improvement on the system has been developed. It is called the ClearDrive® feature. The ClearDrive® feature was developed and patented by Illinois Tool Works (ITW) to solve the problem of organic coatings that would fill the recess during the dip-spin process, thereby compromising the drive system. ClearDrive® allows the coatings to escape from the recess via the channels added to the TORX® recess, virtually eliminating recess-fill. As a 2011 PACE Award Finalist, the design has been well received in the industry and rapidly gaining attention as it is proving to reduce manufacturing costs as scrap and sorting are dramatically reduced.
