The Phillips screw occurs everywhere and therefore aPhillips screwdriver No tool case is missing.

    Phillips screws in many shapes and sizes

    However, it is Phillips not equal Phillips. In our latitudes there are two standardized forms of cross recess drives: Phillips (PH) and Pozidriv (PZ). With Phillips cross-head, the flanks taper as the depth of the slot increases (e.g. drywall screws). Screws with a Pozidriv head (e.g. often with conventional chipboard screws) are provided with fine star lines in addition to the four flanks that are straight here. The Freareson form from the USA or the JIS form from Japan only play subordinate roles for us. The aim of most forms is to prevent the screw from being unscrewed axially in a special way.

    Following Phillips-Forms are used in industrial assemblies and there mostly in connection with bits:

    • Crossed slot
    • Lotus Head
    • Sel-O-Fit

Professional screwdriver for continuous use are made of good chrome-vanadium steel or other high-alloy special steels and have a certain elasticity with a specially hardened tip. At Screwdrivers Made of stainless steel, the focus is also on avoiding the risk of extraneous rust (non-rustproof tools often leave rust residues on stainless steel screws / surfaces). Special hardening processes are used for stainless steel screwdrivers, e.g. vacuum ice hardening.

    Long service life and tight fit in the cross screw

    As with bits, the tips are thePhillips screwdriver Specially designed to achieve a firm fit of the blade in the screw in addition to a long service life. Wera achieves this with its Lasertip tips, in which fine grooves are made in the tip that interlock in the screw head. Other manufacturers roughen the tip, burnish it or apply diamond dust, which presses into the screw and thus ensures a secure hold. If the tip of the blade sits securely in the screw, it can do many things Screwdrivers Auxiliary hexagon attached to the base of the handle can be used with a wrench for support.

    Particularly important in Screwdriversthat are in constant use is a comfortable, ergonomic grip. Premium manufacturers achieve this by manufacturing from several components. The use of softer soft surfaces not only improves power transmission, but also protects the hands. In addition, the handle material should match the area of ​​application of the Screwdriver to adjust. Not every material is oil-resistant. In workshops and in industry in particular, a screwdriver handle must be easy to grip and secure in the hand, even when it is oily. Some manufacturers also make the handles hexagonal and thus prevent rolling away on sloping work surfaces and mark them on the head with the respective blade shape and size so that they can be found more quickly.
