Thanks to its high torque transmission and long tool life, Torx® is used in many industries around the world and remains as relevant today as it was when it first launched. Here, CAMCAR Innovations explains the benefits of working with an authorised Torx® manufacturer.
The Torx® brand began in 1967 with the original Torx® patent. From this humble beginning, the drive system has continually expanded its offerings with ongoing improvements and many new design variants to accommodate a wide range of industry needs including the Torx Plus® and Torx® Paralobe™ among many other variants.
Thanks to its high torque transmission and long tool life, Torx® is used in many industries around the world and remains as relevant today as it was when it first launched. It provides high functionality, allowing manufacturers to improve productivity and easy assembly compared to other hexalobular parts due to its detailed standards which define every small detail, form, and tolerance for manufacturing gages, final inspection gages, production tools, the fasteners, and drive tools. These standards continually evolve to include ongoing technology improvements that are strived for.
Every generic tool, fastener or gage maker has to reverse engineer the design of their products, which results in hundreds of variations in form, tolerancing and functionality. As an assembly manufacturer, users may think they are getting the same performance when changing manufacturing sources and looking at ISO 10664 parts, however in reality there will be differences which can cause quality problems and drive manufacturing costs up, reducing customer satisfaction.
In contrast to this, Torx® authorised manufacturers have one global unitary standard which ensures an end user will get identical quality and results. Additionally, Torx® has only one source for authorised gages – CAMCAR Innovations, limited authorised tool manufacturers and limited authorised drive tool makers, ensuring quality.
“In today's hyper competitive world, why should customers risk using inferior hexalobular parts that drive up quality costs and drive down customer satisfaction?” comments CAMCAR Innovations. “Why not specify it and forget it using the Fastcalc™ engineering software - only available to authorised manufacturers - that ensures the right design has the right functionality with the right application.”
“CAMCAR can help you make your assembly product and process better and with many new product launches coming in the next two years to solve new problems in battery packs, high voltage electrical connections, sheet metal connection, and more, our customers can be assured they have access to the technology they need now and into the future.”camcar.com
