Bosch is bringing to the market a new generation of 14.4 V and 18 V cordless screwdrivers. Part of the ‘dynamicseries’ and ‘robustseries’, they are comfortable to use and are more durable and efficient than models from previous series. The GSR 14.4 V-EC Professional and GSR 18 V-EC Professional cordless screw-drivers and GSB 14.4 V-EC Professional and GSB 18 V-EC Professional cord-less combi drills are new additions to the ‘dynamicseries’ range of tools, which combine compact design with high performance. The GSR 14.4 VE-EV Profes-sional and GSR 18 VE-EC Professional and GSB 14.4 VE-EC Professional and GSB 18 VE-EC Professional models have been added to the ‘robustseries’, which is a series of particularly durable, high-performance tools. These are the first Bosch cordless screwdrivers or combi drills of this class to have brushless motor technology. All eight models have new functions which offer a higher level of comfort for professionals working in the woodworking industry, electricians, plumbers and heating installers. Increased comfort, reduced wear-and-tear Our cordless screwdrivers and combi drills have a newly designed precision cou-pling which is unique in the market. An electronic control system detects when this coupling is overloaded and stops the motor in order to avoid over-tightening when fastening screws. This prevents the loud noise caused by over-tightening, minimizes vibrations, and causes less wear to the material and coupling. This, in turn, results in less wear-and-tear and a longer service life for the tool and ac-cessories. All screwdrivers also come equipped with a robust 13 mm solid metal drill chuck. Full control when screwdriving and drilling Two LEDs alert tradesmen when the tool stops: A white LED to show that the tool has a blockage and a red LED when the tool is overheating. This way, tradesmen are always kept informed of the condition of their tool. Increased com-fort has been achieved thanks to the tools’ improved ergonomics: The Softgrip handle has a grooved structure, meaning that it is easier to hold, especially when working overhead or in tight, hard-to-reach spaces. The proven ‘KickBack Con-trol’ function (previously known as Electronic Rotation Control), an exclusive fea-ture of the ‘dynamicseries’, gives users full control, even for the toughest screw-driving and drilling jobs. The integrated sensor detects sudden tool blockages such as foreign objects in the metal, wood or brickwork and shuts down the mo-tor within a fraction of a second. This prevents unexpected kickback of the tool and, therefore, can reduce the risk of injury. The perfect tool for every job All models are fitted with a brushless EC motor and are maintenance-free with a high degree of accuracy. The EC technology also makes the tool’s compact de-sign possible: The head length of the ‘dynamicseries’ screwdriver matches that of the cordless screwdriver and combi drill from the 10.8 V class. The tools are therefore particularly well-suited for series applications and enable ongoing work, for example by electricians, installers and carpenters, to be carried out quickly and easily. The ‘robustseries’ models are particularly powerful with a maximum torque of up to 75 newton meters and are suitable for the toughest jobs. The ad-ditional hand grip gives users optimum control with clever reinforcement: The corrugated edge of the tool is firmly interlocked with the clasp on the handle. This ensures a secure hold on the additional hand grip, even when dealing with great forces from heavy screwdriving, drilling and impact drilling. Thanks to the new locking mechanism, it is also quickly and easy to assemble and dismantle, and it can be secured into 23 single positions, making the cordless tools in the ‘robust-series’ easier to control.
