Step 70: Torx-Plus® Security
Manufacturers the world over are discovering how the Torx® Drive increases torque transfer, extends tool life, and increases productivity on their assembly lines. Features include a non-symmetrical, elliptically-based geometric configuration; five lobes with solid post in center of recess; concentricity and tight tolerances of special tools make them very difficult to counterfeit.
Currently, Torx-Plus® heads and drivers are patented, slowing adoption in the marketplace, but is licensed to a number of tool manufacturers including Camcar and Facom. The control for these licenses are held by Textron.[[br]]
