What is Gyroscopic Screwdriver?

Gyroscope is a type of mechanical device used to control the direction or speed of objects. It consists of two parts: a rotating axis and a bearing surface. When an object moves through space, it exerts force on the bearing surface which then exerts force on the rotation axis. A gyroscope’s rotational motion allows us to turn our heads from side to side without having to look up or down (or sideways).

The gyroscope is most commonly found in airplanes, but they are also used in many other devices such as clocks, watches, telescopes and even cars.

The purpose of a gyroscope is to allow the device to keep its orientation while moving at high speeds. For example, if you were driving your car along a road with no guardrails, the vehicle would spin out of control due to centrifugal force. If there was a gyroscope in the steering wheel, the vehicle could maintain its proper orientation.

Why Use a Gyroscope Screwdriver?

A gyroscopic screwdriver is used to tighten screws when tightening bolts or nuts. There are several types of screwdrivers available today; however, all of them have one thing in common: They use a gyroscope to keep their orientation during operation. This keeps the screwdriver from slipping off the screw or bolt head.

A conventional screwdriver has a metal handle with a flat tip on one end and a hole for your finger on the other end. A metal extension from the handle keeps your index finger away from the tip to prevent the screw from slipping out of the slot. Another type of screwdriver, called an “E-Z Out”, is made of hard plastic and is primarily used to remove metal strips from paint cans.
