Laser technology to prevent slipping: Avoids slipping out of the screw head
This amazing effect is the result of Lasertip® treatment of the tip. An extremely rough surface hardened up to 1,000 Vickers is created so that the drive end literally “bites” into the screw head. This prevents time-consuming, and usually expensive, boring and avoids injuries and damage to surfaces caused by slipping out of the screw head.
Lower cam-out forces ensure even safer screwdriving action Due to the reduction of the cam-out effect (slipping) less contact pressure is required. Better fit in the screw head The sharp-edged laser grooves result in an extremely tight fi t between the screwdriver and the screw head. Lateral slipping out of slotted screws is also reduced to a large extent.
Advantages at a glance:
- Greater safety: Greater safety as a result of less slipping leading to less damage to screws and delicate surfaces.
- More power: More “bite” in the screw facilitates higher torque transfer.
- More speed: No need to re-set the screwdriver. Significant reduction of contact pressure
- Longer life: Laser treatment of the drive end extends the service life of the tool.
