More accessible automated screwdriving

A hand screwdriver with automatic feeding has been launched by Weber Automatic Assembly Systems.

It has been designed to offer an accessible method of achieving increased production levels in a wide range of industrial applications", says managing director James Mayo. "The LCM4 incorporates a number of Weber's proven features to provide a fast, reliable, and precise method of inserting screws."

The new tool has been preconfigured for use with most common screw sizes "minimising design and manufacturing costs to enable it to be offered at an extremely competitive price.

"It features plug-and-play functionality - users simply position the screwdriving gun and press the trigger bar. Then, the screwdriver bit advances automatically without rotation for ease of positioning and interlocks with the head of the screw, engaging the locking clutch and starting the screwdriver turning. The device tightens the screw to the set torque and, as the trigger bar is released, the screwdriver retracts and a new screw is loaded automatically." The new screwdriver is supported by Weber's technical and application support.
