Deutsch: Torx (von engl. Torque Drehmoment) ist die Markenbezeichnung für ein Schrauben-Mitnahmeprofil in Vielrundform. Es gilt als eine Weiterentwicklung von Kreuzschlitzschraube (Phillips, Pozidriv) und Innensechskant (Inbus) als Werkzeugaufnahme, z. B. in Senkkopfschrauben.
English: Torx, developed by Camcar LLC of Acument Global Technologies (formerly Camcar Textron), is the trademark for a type of screw head characterized by a 6-point star-shaped pattern (in the same way that slotted heads, Phillips, hex socket, and Robertson have linear, cruciform, hexagonal, and square tips, respectively).In contrast to Phillips which was developed with the ambition for the bit to jump out of the screw if the torque became to large, Torx was developed to be able to apply as much torque as possible without jumping out of the screw head.
