Torx Socket Screw what?

In 1967, Camcar Textron patented the Torx screw (also known as the star socket screw), a trademarked type of screw head characterized by its imprint—a star with six points. It is widely used in the automotive and electronics industries, as well as in motorcycles, bicycle brake systems, and in 3C products, including the iPhone.


The popularity of Torx socket screws and Torx socket sets has increased over the years and will likely continue to grow. Not only is the star-shaped design tamper resistant, it saves time and prevents wear. As compared with a conventionalhex socket head of the same size, a Torx screw can withstand a much higher torque without sustaining damage to its head or its socket.

The hand tools for disassembling Torx screw could be divided into 2 series: Torx socket (star female) or Torx Bit (star convexity male).


As a leading manufacturer of quality sockets, Tien-I pays careful attention to the angle of the Torx hole. As Torx nuts have different drive angles from standard nuts, a quality Torx (or star) socket must have the optimal angle for the Torx socket screw.

What is the difference between impact socket and chrome socket? Why is CR-V material not suitable at producing impact sockets?

Tien-i's hand sockets are made of Cr-V steel (CR-V).

Compared with the raw material "CR-V" for hand sockets, the raw material for pneumatic sockets, CR-MO, has stronger toughness, i.e. stronger shock resistance. Suitable for use with air and electric guns. CR-V steel (CR-V) has higher hardness, but in the need for shock-resistant use environment will lead to reduced service life.
