Count On Tools Inc. Introduces SwissGrip ESD Screwdrivers by PB Swiss Tools

GAINESVILLE, GA – Count On Tools Inc., a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, announces that PB Swiss Tools has expanded its existing ESD Screwdriver selection with firmly mounted blades. SwissGrip ESD Screwdrivers are ideal even for difficult applications, with adjusted handle ergonomics. The expanded series is available for Slotted/Flat, Phillips, Pozidriv, Hex Bolts (socket wrench), Hex socket (allen key) and Torx ® screw profiles.

PB Swiss Tools Electrostatic Dissipating (ESD) screwdrivers safely discharge static electricity, making them the ideal choice when working on computer, electronic and other sensitive devices. The ESD series offers reliable protection to electronic components thanks to a combination of antistatic material and the innovative SwissGrip® handle. The surface resistance of the dissipative plastic is 1 M Ω to 1 G Ω (106 to 109 Ohm).

SwissGrip® screwdrivers, with their soft handle surface, effortlessly transfer the rotational forces of the hand to the screw, maximizing torque. They are particularly respected in all industries where problem-free, non-tiring work is a requirement. The special structure means that a secure grip is ensured even if hands are wet. PB Swiss Tools’ ESD series tools are suitable for work on static sensitive electronic components, computer repair, avionics, circuit boards, surface mount technology and more.

Electrostatic discharge is one of the major causes of device failures in the semiconductor industry. Manufacturers and users of integrated circuits must take precautions to avoid electrostatic discharge. Electrostatic discharge prevention can be part of the device itself and include special design techniques for device input and output pins. External protection components can also be used with circuit layout and assembly tools, such as the ESD series from PB Swiss Tools.

With more than 135 years of experience, PB Swiss Tools is a global leader of hand tools manufactured for use in the industrial marketplace, even for the most hazardous jobs. All PB Swiss Tools are 100 percent Swiss-made and come with an unlimited lifetime guarantee.
