Bits and Fastening Accessories

Makita U.S.A., Inc., has released Impact XPS™, a new line of bits and fastening accessories.


Impact XPS will shake up the fastening accessory category with insert bits and power bits engineered to last up to 90x longer than standard bits. The entire Impact XPS line offers 117 SKUs, including insert bits, power bits, insert bit holders, magnetic nutsetters, sockets and socket adapters.


Impact XPS Bits are engineered to withstand the hardest hitting impact drivers, drills and screwdrivers. Three unique features help eliminate common pain points of bits:


Exact Fitment. Precision machined bit tips fit screws with minimal variance, thereby minimizing wear on the bit and screw. This helps prevent screw head stripping (cam-out).


Pulse Torsion Rings and Zone. The specially engineered pulse torsion rings and torsion zone help prevent the screwdriver bit from snapping. Pulse torsion rings disperse impact energy through the torsion zone and off the bit tip. The torsion zone has been optimized to flex under load to transfer impact energy for improved bit life. The length combined with diameter is a special formula to create an optimized torsion zone. This engineering works together for longer performance life.


Unique Steel Blend. The unique steel composition is engineered for increased durability to minimize stripping of screwdriver tips. The Impact XPS bits also feature a matte nickel surface for increased corrosion resistance.


Impact XPS Insert Bits and Power Bits feature exact fitment, pulse torsion rings and zone, and a unique steel blend for up to 90-times longer performance life than standard bits. Impact XPS Insert Bits and Power Bits are available in Phillips #1, #2 and #3, Square #1, #2 and #3, and Torx T10, T15, T20, T25, T27 and T30. Impact XPS Power Bits are available in 2", 3" and 6" lengths.


Impact XPS Magnetic Insert Bit Holders are ideal for use with Impact XPS Insert Bits. The bit holder is engineered to allow the torsion section of the bit holder to flex under load, taking pressure off the bit tip for increased durability in high torque applications. Impact XPS Insert Bit Holders are available in 2 3/8", 3", 6" and 12" lengths.


Impact XPS Magnetic Nutsetters are designed to drive hex head nuts and self-tapping screws in a variety of applications. The hex shank allows for convenient use with high-torque impact drivers and driver-drills. Flat edges at the hex opening provide full contact with flanged hex head screws, and the lobular design is engineered to reduce stripping damage by driving fasteners on the sides, not the corners. The fixed magnet insert allows for easy one-handed operation. Impact XPS Nutsetters are available in 2 9/16" and 6" lengths in 1/4", 5/16" and 3/8" sizes.


Impact XPS Sockets and Socket Adapters are designed to handle the fastening of automotive bolts and fasteners, lag bolts, threaded rod nuts, and more. The 6-point sockets feature a lobular design engineered to reduce stripping damage by driving fasteners on the sides, not the corners. Both metric and SAE socket sets are available, with 2" socket adaptors for use with 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" sockets.
