Allen Key And Torx Key

An allen key which is also commonly known by some other names like, Allen wrench, hex key or torx key, it is a hexagonal hand tool which has a hollow shaft and is used to drive or fasten and loosen the bolts and screws with corresponding sockets in their heads. It is a very light, simple and small L-shaped tool which has six contact surfaces between the bolt and the drivers.
The Allen Keys protect the contact surfaces of the screw or bolt from external damage and they can be used with a headless screw as well. The screw can be inserted into its hole using the Allen Keys. The torque that is applied to the screw is constrained by the length and thickness of the key. Using these types of Wrenches very small bolt heads can also be very easily accommodated. The torx key can be manufactured very cheaply. But sometimes, the contact surfaces of the hex key gets rounded off if the key is over torqued.

Application of the Torx Key

By design, Torx head screws resist cam-out, that is when the screwdriver slips out of the head of the screw, better than slot head screws. Where slot heads were designed to cause the driver to cam out, to prevent overtightening, Torx heads were designed to prevent cam-out. The development of better torque-limiting automatic screwdrivers for use in factories allowed this change. Rather than rely on the tool to slip out of the screw head when a torque level is reached, which risks damage to the driver tip, screw head, and workpiece, torque-limiting driver designs achieve a desired torque consistently. It is said that this combination can increase tool bit life by ten times or more. These keys are often referred to as a variant of the Plier sets also. The Torx design allows for a higher torque to be exerted than a similarly sized conventional hex socket head without damaging the head or the tool.
