Exchangeable bits have proven a highly effective system ensuring smooth working processes, for instance in assembly work. Bits are short screwdriver blades which are stuck into a special bit holder, turning it into a fully-functional screwdriver. This magazine bit holder incorporates an innovative handle magazine containing a compact exchange bit system for six bits. Its compact design merges ergonomics with a functionality that has been designed with users in mind. It is easy to pick up and hold, featuring an innovative opening mechanism that is particularly fascinating. Via an easy-to-operate pressure lock, the user receives the correct bit simply through the push of a button. The ergonomic magazine handle design enables energy-saving, comfortable and effective screw fastening. Alongside its functional and ergonomic aspects, the consistent product graphics are also convincing. They ensure good user guidance and quick orientation and lend the tool a highly distinctive look. The magazine bit holder is available as a mechanical version with 25 mm or 70 mm bits as well as a model with an innovative VDE-tested magazine bit holder with slimBits. With its compact and ergonomic design, it allows bit heads to be swapped easily – the innovative opening mechanism conveys a high degree of perfection.
