TORX PARALOBETM

The TORX PARALOBE Drive System was developed as a result of listening to our customers’ needs and concerns with other drive systems. It also improves upon the benefits of our TORX® and TORX PLUS® drive systems by offering increasing drive bit strength, life, and increasing torque; 20% over the TORX PLUS® drive system; 50% over the TORX® drive system! The TORX PARALOBE Drive System features unique geometry resulting in ‘full surface drive contact’ to reduce drive bit/recess contact stresses.

Torx Paralobe AUTOSERT® Benefits

The AUTOSERT® feature is the perfect solution for assembly situations where the driver bit is continuously rotating. The compound angle ramps guide the driver bit into the recess. Creation a self-centering 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 up engagement
  • Reduces assembly time
  • Increases productivity

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

  • Eases starting
  • Eliminates the need to slow down the driver bit
  • Increases tool life
  • Eliminates cam-out debris

Torx Paralobe Stick fit bits Benefits

A taper along the flute centerline suited for non-magnetic horizontal and vertical applications.

  • Stable stick fit between drive tool and recessed part.
  • Suitable for manual and automated applications where the orientation of the fastener changes between the time the fastener is engaged on the bit and the time the fastener enters the nut thread.
