The SlimDRIVE Fixtured Automatic Screwdriver Head

The Carlson Engineering SlimDRIVE automatic screwdriving head is designed to work with a screwfeeder. The SlimDRIVE will automate your screwdriving process by automatically advancing the screw to your product, stopping above it and then advancing the bit, and lastly driving the screw to torque or depth. It can be fitted with almost any brand of screwdriver on the market today. The SlimDRIVE can be fitted with a screwdriver with an offset gearbox. This drive head allows a side to center clearance of less than 3/8 of an inch. We have been making this drive head since 1990.
