Have you recently bought an impact driver and are looking for the right impact bit for your job? We know that the market is full of tips with different heads, lengths, types. In the following guide we will explain what impact bits are, the benefits they have over a normal bit and the different types of bits.
Impact screwdriver bits. What are they?
These bits are special bits designed to be used in electric impact drivers and are characterized by absorbing the torque peaks produced by impact drivers. In most cases, the bits are used improperly as we use “normal” bits in impact drivers and as they do not absorb torque peaks they tend to break faster.
At first glance we can easily identify an impact driver bit by its slightly narrower neck. This part absorbs the tightening torque, prolonging the useful life of said bits.

It is responsible for the union between the tip and the screw. The tip can be of different sizes and shapes but the most frequent ones are the PZ, PZ and TX.
