Torque refers to the “turning force” that an electric screwdriver (e.g. cordless screwdriver) develops during screwdriving. Put simply, the torque describes with how much force the screw is driven into the workpiece. You can select the torque in advance on cordless screwdrivers: using the torque setting guarantees material-specific screwdriving without damaging the surface. Low torque is recommended for small screw diameters, high torque for large screw diameters.
