The upstream industries of the power tool industry mainly include the non-ferrous metal industry and the plastic industry. The downstream industries include home decoration, wood processing, metal processing, automobile maintenance, road construction, shipbuilding, aerospace, and other industries. There are various types of power tools, such as electric drills, electric screwdrivers, electric hammers, and electric wrenches. These power tools can greatly save users' effort.
Power tools involve various types of technologies, and battery technology is one of the key technologies for battery-powered power tools. In the past, nickel-cadmium batteries were commonly used in battery-powered power tools. However, nickel-cadmium batteries have disadvantages such as environmental pollution, small battery capacity, and short lifespan, which limits their applications. Lithium batteries, on the other hand, have advantages such as high voltage, large specific energy, long cycle life, and good safety performance.
They have gradually replaced nickel-cadmium batteries as the most important power source. In recent years, lithium-ion battery technology has continued to develop, and its applications have become more extensive. Power tool manufacturers have increased their research and development efforts in lithium-ion battery power tools. In general, electric tools need to have good safety performance and strong adaptability in order to achieve the goals of long cycle life, large capacity, and low discharge rate after full charge.
The characteristics of surgical power tools differ from general industrial or household power tools. Surgical power tools have specific requirements for sterilization, high reliability, high power and performance, high motor efficiency, precise control, and low vibration.
Medical power tools are classified according to different types of surgery, such as plastic surgery, ENT, neurospine, orthopedic surgery, arthroscopic planer, surgical robot, skin transplantation, craniotomy, and more. Compared to general and household power tools, medical power tools have higher requirements, especially for the motor.
Brushless motors are used in surgical power tools to effectively reduce losses, improve safety and reliability, and increase the service life of the tools while reducing maintenance costs. There is significant potential for future development in this area.
In a brushless motor, electronic commutation is used, where the coil remains stationary and the magnetic pole rotates while sensing the position of the permanent magnet. Based on this sensing, the direction of the current in the coil is switched in a timely manner to ensure the generation of magnetic force in the correct direction to drive the motor. The absence of brushes in a brushless motor eliminates the generation of electric sparks during operation, greatly reducing interference with remote control radio equipment. Additionally, the motor operates with reduced friction, resulting in smooth operation, reduced noise and wear, and easier maintenance.
Different surgical operations have specific requirements for power tools. Orthopedic saws, for example, need to be powerful, efficient, and lightweight. On the other hand, ENT, spine, and neurosurgery procedures necessitate high speed, precise control, a compact size, low temperature rise, and minimal noise/vibration. Additionally, surgical tools are exposed to harsh saline immersion during procedures and sterilization.
Currently, the main challenge in arthroscopic surgery equipment is the demand for high power, high speed, and high efficiency. These tools must be able to work effectively with varying patient tissue densities, such as bone or cartilage, to ensure smooth operation.
Power tools used for skin-related procedures must deliver maximum power and speed while occupying minimal space and having lightweight components.
Craniotomy surgery is extremely complex and requires exceptional precision and balance. Even the slightest vibration or shaking can impact the outcome of the surgical procedure. Therefore, power tools used in neurosurgery must have low vibration and perfectly balanced motors to enable fatigue-free work in all types of neurosurgical procedures.
