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.
Currently, 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.
A leading power tool manufacturer needed an extremely compact flyback transformer in SMT construction for its next generation cordless charger. To ensure stable load regulation, the transformer required very low leakage inductance. In cooperation with the customer, ZETTLER Magnetics’ engineers were able to develop a transformer solution that meets 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.
