Are you tough enough for the new tougher CK Dextro Screwdriver range?

CK Dextro strong
Are You Tough Enough For These Profits?

Set to electrify the industry, Carl Kammerling International has enhanced its already popular C.K tools dextro screwdriver range, reinforcing its durability to make it twice as strong as the average human! 
Now up to an impressive 30 per cent tougher, the C.K dextro screwdrivers provide a true test of strength. This toolbox staple has always exceeded the tip strength requirements of ISO international standards. However, through an extensive design optimisation programme undertaken by Carl Kammerling’s dedicated team of engineers and metallurgists, the C.K dextro and dextroVDE screwdrivers are now tougher than ever before, providing screwdrivers with a real difference.
International screwdriver standards for a PZ2 screwdriver require a minimum torque load of 10.3nm. A human torque test reveals a capability of applying approximately 8.2nm of torque, and in independent testing the improved C.K dextro was found to be capable of withstanding over 20nm of torque, making it the toughest yet.
As suggested by its name, the dextro VDE has been crafted purposely for the dexterity required in the nature of the work undertaken with a long, fine neck for ultimate fingertip control. It has an ergonomically shaped dual component handle, injection moulded directly to the blade giving the ultimate bond for increased reliability and durability, and ridges along the head to give extra power in the last quarter turn.
For easy identification the entire dextro range has the tip type marked on the end of each handle, and anti-roll flats, which come in very useful when the screwdriver is put down on a sloped surface.
A premium quality, chrome vanadium steel blade provides exceptional strength and durability, whilst a precision machined tip ensures an exact screw fit and damage free screwdriving. And not forgetting that improved tip, which is now up to 30 per cent tougher!
Watch the video 
With voltages as low as fifty Volts potentially proving extremely dangerous, if not lethal, the VDE approval of the dextro VDE range offers electricians maximum safety. VDE-approved tools are designed to reduce the risk of injury and damage to electrical circuitry. For many years tools have been labelled ‘insulated’, meaning only that they are coated with a material that is not a conductor of electricity. There are even tools on the market that claim they are tested to 1,000V. However, only tools marked ‘VDE’ have passed the rigorous tests set by the VDE Testing and Certification Institute, including being specifically tested to 10,000V of electricity and only these tools offer the peace of mind an electrician needs.

How to have all the tools you need right with you?

Working on electronics you end up having to have more than one tool in your box of tricks, as today’s modern electronics require a myriad of different tools to just get the cover off.  Having a toolkit is the easiest and safest and most convenient way of keeping all your belongings in one place, handy and ready to use. 
We have a wide range of toolkits, we have the ever popular range of Electronics kits, and we also have customer designed kits like the 1900M-CK which was designed for the military (done in a green canvas case).
If your tool requirements are best suited to a smaller carry case, we have a range of zip up bags:  they will fit neatly in one hand, or a slightly larger bag that you can carry over a shoulder.  You will have access to your smaller range of tools.  (We have a range with or without tools)
Have you had the misfortune of leaving a tool on site while doing a job?  Only to forget it there, and it winds up being lost or stolen. Or having lent a tool to a colleague? You would probably only notice it missing when you next need to use that tool. This is often too late. We have tried to mitigate that and have been supplying toolkits with foam tool cut-outs.  Each tool has its own cosy spot to fit in. When you need to use the tool, it is easily accessible from the foam. BUT here is the winner.  The bright orange under foam alerts you at just a glance to which tool or tools are missing while packing up. Lost tools are a thing of the past!  This will save you time, frustration and of course the cost of replacing it. Have a look below at an example of our foam cut-outs.  Depending on your requirement (quantity), we can have a specific foam cut out designed for your companies technicians. Alternatively if you are just looking for a empty bag we have a wide selection: 

Empty Brief cases
CK Magma bags
Explorer cases (waterproof)
Hard Plastic ABS
RSA 1708C-CKLost tools? 
In other news we have a range of over stocked Kennedy items which we are offering to our valued clients.  If you are interested have a look through this list.
