The use of products such as stainless steel hex head cap screws and Inconel socket head cap screws is usually affected by how they are put in place. When they are fastened properly, they are likely to perform their functions well, and also more likely to stay without loosening. One of the things that will determine this is the type of screw driver you use for the job. In order to put the screws in place with minimal effort and with an increased chance of longevity, it is usually advisable to carefully choose the right screwdriver for the job. This usually means understanding the various differences between the technologies used in manufacturing them.
One of the products that you should definitely consider investing in are the brushless electric screwdrivers. These are becoming more popular with time, but the fact that they are a bit more expensive than the other types of screwdrivers means that many people may not consider buying them. However, there are various benefits to investing in them including:
They are not as expensive as you might think
Before you discount the brushless screwdrivers as being needlessly expensive, you should find out how much they cost from various stores. Due to the increasing demand for these products, most of them will be a lot more affordable compared to the past. Besides, you can always shop for them online if you are looking for a better deal. They will definitely cost more than the regular screwdrivers, but not by much.
They automatically vary their speed
Perhaps one of the biggest selling points of the brushless screwdrivers is the fact that they can automatically vary their speed to suit the type of work you are doing. For instance, if you are fastening Styrofoam, the device will note the softness of the material you are drilling into, and then reduce the speed to a more suitable level. This usually means that they end up using less power from the battery. The brushed screwdrivers don’t do this; they usually run at maximum speed whatever the application they are used for.
Better battery life
Due to the fact that these types of screwdrivers are ‘smarter’, they end up consuming power in a more energy efficient manner compared to the brushed ones. As a result, you will find yourself not spending as much time charging them up. Conservative battery use also results in better longevity, which means that the maintenance costs of the device will be more manageable.
They are more powerful
Brushless motors have fewer moving parts, which means that they have less power loss due to friction. As a result, they tend to be more powerful than the regular brushed screwdrivers. This in turn means that they are the better option for people who need the most out of their screwdrivers, and those who want as much precision as possible.
These are just a few of the benefits you are likely to gain from investing in the brushless screwdrivers. The key to benefitting from all the above and more is to simply make sure that you purchase a brand that has good quality.
Started my career in the fastener world in 1969 at, Parker Kalon Corp. a NJ based screw manufacturer located in Clifton, NJ working in inventory control, scheduling secondary production and concluding there in purchasing. In 1971 I accepted a sales position at Star Stainless Screw Co., Totowa, NJ working in inside sales and later as an outside salesman, having a successful career at Star I had the desire with a friend to start our own fastener distribution company in 1980 named: Divspec, Kenilworth, NJ. This was a successful adventure but ended in 1985 with me starting Melfast in August 1985 and have stayed competitive and successful to date. Melfast serves the OEM market with approximately 400 accounts nationally.
