TORX PLUS®

The drive system that is gentle on tools.

Where TORX PLUS® drivers are used the head height can be minimised, thus reducing the overall weight of the component. This is made possible with the improved force application process, which ensures decreased penetration depth.


The TORX PLUS® drive system provides these advantages, because of the following design characteristics:

  • the drive angle is 0°
  • larger cross-section at lobes
  • less force application slant

Calculation basis:

A ratio of minimum 1.0 to 1.0 between the thread tension surface and head tension surface was established as the standard head height combined with TORX® with regard to an optimal residual base thickness.


Of course TORX PLUS® also provides the well-known advantages that distinguished the TORX® drive system.

  • less axial forces required
  • fatigue-free working
  • no damage to surface
  • high breakaway torques
  • no tool camout

Further advantages of the TORX PLUS® driver system:

  • 25% improvement on average torsion resistance in screwdriving tools
  • improved tool seating when power-driving the screw
  • compatible with existing tools on TORX® screwdriving system, so no maintenance problems with existing TORX® applications


From this we derive the following assembly advantages:

  • Downtime minimised due to longer tool life
  • Improved assembly reliability between tightening and breaking torques
  • Screw-in conditions improved with improved assembly tool seating
