Original Press Release:
ASG Introduces the HIOS® INTRTORQUE® Technology for an Exceptional Bit and Screw Engagement
ASG is excited to announce the introduction of INTRTORQUE® from HIOS® - A patented screw and bit combination. The newly designed Super Point provides superior engagement between the screw and bit, which ultimately translates to more consistent, repeatable and higher-quality assembly of your parts.
The specially designed screw and bit combo feature a guide and lock function. While hexalobular bits are traditionally flat, HIOS® INTRTORQUE® bit has a tapered end. This end, referred to as Super Point, glides into the recess of the screw and prevents any unnecessary movements or wobbling upon engagement. This also frees the hands of the operator, as he/she no longer has to hold the screw while fastening.
"Super Point, [the key feature of the HIOS Intrtorque® system], allows for precise and accurate screw fastening" says Bryon Shafer, General Manager of ASG. "The tapered end of the bit fits comfortably into the screw recess, creating an engagement that enables the operator to fasten with stability."
With reliable fitting and outstanding operability, the INTROTORQUE® solution assists with preventing screw fastening errors and can reduce the time needed for fastening by up to 40%. This technology increases the accuracy and repeatability of the torque by removing inefficiencies and unnecessary movement between the screw and the bit. INTROTORQUE® is compatible with hexalobular screws, allowing for a seamless and cost-effective transition. Visit www.asg-jergens.com/intrtorque.html to see application videos.
