Application Spotlight October 2019

Munich, Germany October 15., 2019 – According to a recent MarketsandMarkets report, the worldwide market for power tools is estimated to reach USD 41.7 billion in 2024 with a CAGR of 5.5%. Growing adoption of cordless power tools, rising demand for fastening tools in industrial environments, and growing construction industry in emerging economies are the key factors driving the growth of the power tools market.

Power toolsCurrently, drilling, fastening and screwdriving tools hold the largest market share in the power tools market, and a similar trend is likely to continue during the forecast period. Within that segment residential and „Do-it-yourself“ applications are expanding strongly, driving demand for compact, and easy-to-handle products with robust performance. For manufacturers, this creates challenges in designing ergonomic, lightweight and easy-to-handle power tool products.

Flyback A world-leading manufacturer of tools needed an extremely compact flyback transformer in SMT construction for its new generation of power tools, with very low leakage inductance to ensure stable load regulation. In cooperation with the customer, ZETTLER Magnetics’ engineers were able to develop a transformer solution that meets all these specifications in a small size, as well as in compliance with EMC regulations. Customized solutions at competitive prices are at the center of ZETTLER Magnetics’ commercial and engineering philosophy.
