The flexible electric screwdriver is a powerful tool for all those who need to afford protracted assembly and disassembly sessions in the framework of a professional activity or a do-it-yourself project (e.g. building flat-pack furniture, setting up exhibition booths, etc…). Easy to handle and precise to address, this device saves time and effort, enabling at the same time to access screws located in an area with a limited space. The working parameters as voltage and torque can be competitive with those of the most advanced devices offered on the market without losing the flexibility and the user-friendliness.
A fully working prototype of the flexible screwdriver has been tested and a patent application has been filed in Germany. On behalf of the RWTH University, PROvendis is seeking a partner for further development in view of licensing the technology.
