ATHLET is a license holder for TORX® and TORX PLUS®!

Since August 1, 2014 ATHLET is part of the exclusive circle of TORX® and TORX PLUS® license holders. As there are only 20 such license holders across Europe, we are proud to be part of it.

The advantages of the TORX® profile are clear: through the cylindrical TORX® profile with six loops aligned in a star shape, an excellent fit in the TORX® screw head can be achieved and a significantly lower pressure for tightening of the screw is required compared to a classic Philips profile (PH or PZ). The so called cam-out effect is reduced to nearly zero. Through the six relatively large radial points of contact the cylindrical TORX® profile creates an extremely good torque transmission. Particularly with high torques this is a clear advantage compared to the classic Philips or hexagon profiles. In addition this facilitates a gentle and low wearing handling of both screwing guns and bit in the screws.

Compared to the TORX® profile the TORX PLUS® profile constitutes an enhanced development dramatically increasing the aforementioned effects. In terms of torque transmission it is said that the torque performance is again increased by 25%. Especially in today’s high-tech society, this allows for significantly smaller screw heads to be used in relation to more and more compact assemblies and bolting with high torques.

At ATHLET you will find a broad selection of high grade TORX® and TORX PLUS® tools within the workshop and single part tested VDE range, such as in the 2K screwdriver series 5000. Why not take a closer look at our catalogue:
