PB Swiss Tools SwissGrip Screwdrivers Tested for Quality

Sep 19, 2011

Count On Tools Inc., a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, announces that the SwissGrip Screwdriver from PB Swiss Tools recently was evaluated by the Fraunhofer Institute, Europe’s largest organization for research in the field of applied science.

The Fraunhofer Institute examined the SwissGrip Screwdrivers for unique selling points in the areas of ergonomics, functionality, shape and aesthetics. The test group included professionals from industry and commerce, DIY enthusiasts, men and women, and users of all ages. The tests confirmed that SwissGrip screwing tools are safe and simple to use, in addition to underlining their excellent functioning and design-oriented qualities.

Advantages of the SwissGrip Screwdriver include:

  • Universal application and easy-to-use - even with wet hands
  • Ergonomic grooves make it possible to achieve high torque levels
  • Resistant against acetone and diluents
  • Pleasant to hold due to the soft Santoprene coating®

The PB Swiss Tool screwdriver handle lines of SwissGrip, ElectroTool, Torque Tools, Ratchets and Crosshandle are respectively made of two components. The core consists of an especially durable and impact-resistant polypropylene. The coating made of Santoprene® is friendly to the skin and provides a soft feeling grip.

With more than 130 years of experience, PB Swiss Tools is a global leader of hand tools manufactured for use in the industrial marketplace, even for the most hazardous jobs. All PB Swiss Tools are 100 percent Swiss-made and come with an unlimited lifetime guarantee.
