MAKITA ADDS TORX AND SQUARE RECESS INSERT BITS TO BEST-IN-CLASS IMPACT GOLD LINE

New Impact GOLD bits are exclusively designed for use with high-torque impact drivers

The new Torx® and Square Recess Insert Bits are new additions to Impact GOLD®, the New Gold Standard in Impact Driving.

La Mirada, CA – Makita® , a worldwide manufacturer of technologically advanced power tools that are more compact with less weight yet deliver industrial power and results, has released new Impact GOLD® Torx® and Square Recess Insert Bits.
 
Impact GOLD®, a line of insert bits, bit holders, double-ended power bits, nutsetters, sockets, and socket adapters, is designed exclusively for high-torque impact drivers.
 
“Insert bits are clearly lagging behind the increased fastening power of high torque impact drivers, so Makita created Impact GOLD® and revolutionized fastening applications with 10-times longer bit life,” said Brandon Stover, Makita Product Manager, Accessories. “Makita Impact GOLD® has come to be known as the most reliable bit on the job site, and the new Torx® and Square Recess Insert Bits are another best-in-class solution from Makita for industrial fastening applications.”
 
High-Quality Steel, Xtreme Torsion Technology
Impact GOLD® begins with high-quality steel engineered for use with impact drivers. To help withstand the increased impact energy of the most demanding applications, Impact GOLD® features Xtreme Torsion Technology, which allows the torsion section of the bit to flex under load and take the pressure off of the bit tip. Xtreme Torsion Technology helps the insert bit withstand high-torque fastening applications, retain its shape and “fitment”, and last up to 10-times longer than standard bits – and up to 15-times longer when used with an Impact GOLD® Torsion Insert Bit Holder.
 
Precision-Fit Tip Minimizes “Cam-Out” and Stripping
In fastening, accurate “fitment” is achieved when the bit fully engages the screw with equal contact on all surfaces, resulting in no gaps and a precision fit that prevents “cam-out” and stripping. Insert bit “fitment” can be determined by pressing the bit into the screw head and measuring the movement side to side: the more movement, the worse the fitment. Another indicator of poor fitment is “wobble” during rotation, a clear indicator of off-center alignment and uneven fitment that can result increased “cam-outs” and stripped screws. Makita Impact GOLD® bits are subject to a rigorous five-stage manufacturing process which includes a correction stage engineered to deliver consistent and superior fitment, bit after bit.
