Durability of Brushless Electric Screwdrivers vs Standard Electric Screwdrivers
Designed for high production environments, electric screwdrivers with a high-performance brushless motor design provides durability and reduces the standard maintenance costs for standard electric screwdrivers. Management in power tools ensures product quality, cost savings and a reduction in overall failures.
Standard Electric Screwdrivers (with Brushes)
These standard models use brushes and over time there's wear on expandable parts (carbon brushes, commutators, switches and other contact points). The heat generated by the motor in electric screwdrivers with brushes can shorten the operating life of the screwdriver. Wear on the expendable parts can affect performance, causing the screwdriver to stop operating. These screwdrivers require regular maintenance and part replacement, depending on the amount operating time and the environment it's used in.
Brushless Electric Screwdrivers
Screwdrivers with brushless motors have an extremely long operating life with no need for regular maintenance or replacement of expendable parts (carbon brushes, rotor, switches and other contact points). Heat generated by the motor is reduced and screwdriver performance is always at the maximum level resulting in reliable product quality. The brushless screwdriver ensures product quality, cost savings and a reduction in overall failures.
Carbon Brush Worn
Carbon brushes are typically the first item replaced after 6 months (based on tightening of 5,000 screws per day). Approximately 0.6g of worn carbon granules are scattered within the electric screwdriver housing and in the air.
Expendable carbon brushes wear out, sending carbon powder throughout the motor. In turn causing operating problems and reducing overall screwdriver performance. These screwdrivers require regular maintenance and part replacement.
With almost no expendable parts and simple design, the brushless screwdriver life cycle is extended and maintains a clean working environment. The screwdriver requires less maintenance and part replacement and provides consistently reliable performance.
