Mach-Blue™ Impact-Driver Bits Up To 33% Stronger, Last 70x Longer
Building on its expertise in drilling, boring and cutting tools, Spyder®, a leader in high-performance power tool accessories, today unveiled its latest product — impact-rated driver bits featuring Mach-Blue™ Tough Tip™ technology. Available now, Lowe’s is the exclusive nationwide home center to offer the new Mach-Blue driver bits.
Mach-Blue driver bits are designed to last significantly longer and resist breakage better than typical impact-rated driver bits. The new bits have been third-party tested to American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standards and shown to last up to 70 times longer than standard impact-rated driver bits.
Spyder’s new bits also feature 33% stronger tip profiles compared to standard bits driven by the company’s proprietary Tough Tip technology. This technology incorporates Spyder’s Mach-Blue plating, which strengthens the drive surface and provides extreme corrosion protection. Spyder’s proprietary IMPACTive™ alloy tool steel and optimized torsion zones actively flex to dissipate peak impact forces. Each drive tip is precision machined for superior strength and fit, resisting cam-out, twisting and breakage.
“We over-engineer all Spyder tools to withstand all-day use and abuse from professional users, and Mach-Blue driver bits are no exception,” said Ryan Campbell, executive vice president and general manager of Spyder. “The combination of our superior Mach-Blue plating, precision machining and durable alloy steel creates a long-lived impact-driver bit that maximizes the investment of both professional and casual users.”
Following the launch of Spyder’s high-speed steel drill bits last year, Mach-Blue driver bits are the company’s second product line to feature Mach-Blue plating, which gives the tools an eye-catching, iridescent blue finish.
The bits’ impact-rated, 1/4” speed hex allows them to be used in high-torque impacting drivers and conventional rotary drills with three-jaw chucks.
Mach-Blue driver bits are currently available in a 25-piece kit, which includes Phillips, slotted, star and square bits, as well as a 30-piece kit, which includes additional sizes and nut-driver bits. Each kit includes a magnetic bit holder and is housed in a durable hard case with bump- and slip-resistant rubber corners. Additional drive sets, drill-and-drive sets, and individual bits will be available later this summer.
Mach-Blue driver bits are available nationwide at Lowe’s stores and on Lowes.com.
