Fixtured Drivers

Carlson Engineering has the deepest product offering of fixtured screwdriving heads on the market today. These drive heads are mounted to cartesian robots, transfer lines, fixtures, SCARA robots, work cells, and indexing stations. We build drive heads to drive screws one at a time or many screws at once. All of our drive heads use high load liner guide bearings and are designed to operate 3 shifts a day with minimal maintenance.

Fixtured Driver


The Carlson Engineering MultiDRIVE automatic screwdriving head is designed to work with a screwfeeder. This is the heavy weight of our multi- spindle drive head family. It will automate your screwdriving process by automatically advancing the screw or screws to your product, stop above it, and then advance the bit driving the screw or screws to torque or depth. It can be fitted with almost any brand of screwdriver on the market today.
