Description

Power-Driven Direct Drive Ratchet/Wrench Tool
The current application claims a priority to the U.S. Provisional Patent application serial number 62/328,102 filed on April 27, 2016.
FIELD OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates generally to power tools, ratchets and wrenches to be specific. In particular, the present invention is a power-driven direct drive
ratchet/wrench tool which allows a user to speed up the process of tightening or loosening an external object such as a screw, bold, nut, and other similar fasteners, where space and access to the external object is limited.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
Traditional wrench-type tools used for tightening and loosening fasteners provide users with a mechanical advantage in order to allow the user to apply a significantly large amount of torque to the fastener. In certain cases, the amount of torque is still insufficient and the user must then turn to powered wrench-type tools. These types of tools are powered by an external source, such as a pneumatic driver, and apply said force onto the fastener. Power driven tools significantly increase the torque provided and the time required to tighten or loosen as fastener. One of the main downsides of power driven tools is their relative size. Because of the machinery and technology required for the operation of these types of tools, the resulting tool is bulky and hard to maneuver, especially in low clearance areas. Therefore, there is a need for a power-driven tool which provides the benefits of power driven tools without the associated large profile. The objective of the present invention is to create a power-driven tool to speed up the process of twisting, turning or loosening an object, i.e. bolt, screw, nut etc., where direct/frontal access is limited or restricted by other conventional tools. The present invention utilizes a unique drive train which effectively transmits torque onto the fastener and allows for the reduction of the overall profile of the tool.

DETAIL DESCRIPTIONS OF THE INVENTION
All illustrations of the drawings are for the purpose of describing selected versions of the present invention and are not intended to limit the scope of the present invention.
The present invention is an attachment for a power tool. More specifically, the present invention is a direct drive ratchet/wrench tool powered by an external power tool which allows a user to speed up the process of tightening and loosening a fastener, especially if the fastener is in a hard to reach area with little to no clearance. The present invention may be utilized with and by a variety of external power tools including, but not limited to, electric drivers and pneumatic drivers.
Referring to FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, the present invention comprises a tool housing 1, a drive shaft 12, a spur gear 9, a plurality of drive pins 17, and a fastener-engagement body 6. The tool housing 1 acts as the structural element of the present invention and comprises a ratchet head 2, a tubular handle 3, and a gear-receiving cavity 5. The ratchet head 2 is a cylindrical housing which encloses and supports the spur gear 9 and the fastener-engagement body 6. Similar to traditional wrench designs, the ratchet head 2 is a terminally connected to the tubular handle 3. The gear-receiving cavity 5 laterally traverses into the ratchet head 2 to receive the spur gear 9 and the fastener-engagement body 6. More specifically, the gear-receiving cavity 5 intersects a lumen 4 of the tubular handle 3 and is orientated perpendicular to the tubular handle 3. The spur gear 9 transmits torque from the drive shaft 12 to the fastener-engagement body 6, which in turn transmits said torque onto an external object such as a bolt, screw, nut, or other similar fastener. As a result, the spur gear 9 is rotatably mounted within the gear-receiving cavity 5;
additionally, the spur gear 9 comprises a first face 10. The fastener-engagement body 6 acts as the interface element of the present invention to physically engage and apply a torque force onto the external object. The fastener-engagement body 6 is adjacently connected to the spur gear 9, opposite the ratchet head 2. More specifically, the fastener- engagement body 6 is connected onto the first face 10 of the spur gear 9.
The drive shaft 12 and the plurality of drive pins 17 transfer torque and rotation motion from the external power tool to the spur gear 9. The drive shaft 12 is an elongated cylinder composed of a strong material such as steel. Referring to FIG. 2 and FIG. 3, the drive shaft 12 is concentrically and rotatably mounted within the tubular handle 3. It is preferred that the drive shaft 12 is rotatably mounted within the tubular handle 3 through the use of multiple bearings. The plurality of drive pins 17 engages the spur gear 9 to transfer torque smoothly, contrary to traditional use of offset gears. Because the plurality of drive pins 17 is used, the tool housing 1 and the overall profile of the present invention can be reduced to a considerably slimmer design. For efficient transfer of torque, a rotation axis 11 of the spur gear 9 is oriented perpendicular to a rotation axis 15 of the drive shaft 12. In alternative embodiments of the present invention, the rotation axis 11 of the spur gear 9 may be oriented at an obtuse or an acute angle relative to the rotation axis 15 of the drive shaft 12. To accommodate for this orientation different types of gear designs may be used for the spur gear 9. The plurality of drive pins 17 is radially distributed about the rotation axis 15 of the drive shaft 12 with each of the plurality of drive pins 17 being perpendicularly connected to a proximal base 16 of the drive shaft 12; wherein the proximal base 16 is positioned adjacent to the ratchet head 2. This positions the plurality of drive pins 17 directly next to the spur gear 9. In order to transfer torque, an at least one arbitrary pin from the plurality of drive pins 17 is mechanically engaged to the spur gear 9, wherein the arbitrary pin represents any one from the plurality of drive pins 17. The spur gear 9 in conjunction with the plurality of drive pins 17 produce more torque than traditional off-set gear driven tools.
The plurality of drive pins 17 is able to transfer torque to the spur gear 9 through a continuous partial engagement. In other words, only a certain number from the plurality of drive pins 17 is, at one point, engaged with the spur gear 9. To achieve this, the spur gear 9 must be specifically positioned relative to the plurality of drive pins 17. In particular, the first face 10 of the spur gear 9 is positioned coincident with the rotation axis 15 of the drive shaft 12. As a result, the arbitrary pin, the pin from the plurality of drive pins 17 that is engaged to the spur gear 9, is always traveling with a lateral velocity of the same direction. In other words, the arbitrary pin is located in the lower half of the drive shaft 12, below the rotation axis 15 of the drive shaft 12. This ensures that the lateral force translated from the arbitrary pin to the spur gear 9 is always in the same direction, regardless of the magnitude. This prevents the spur gear 9 from locking up and ensures maximum torque transfer from the drive shaft 12 to the spur gear 9.
Referring to FIG. 4, each of the plurality of drive pins 17 comprises a fixed end 18, a tooth body 19, and a free end 20. The fixed end 18 is connected onto the proximal base 16. To ensure a smooth engagement between each of the plurality of drive pins 17 and the teeth of the spur gear 9, the tooth body 19 is tapered from the fixed end 18 to the free end 20. The tapered feature takes into account the fact that the plurality of drive pins 17 is rotating about the rotation axis 15 of the drive shaft 12, which is oriented perpendicular to the rotation axis 11 of the spur gear 9. It is preferred that there are three pins within the plurality of drive pins 17 that are equally distributed about the rotation axis 15 of the drive shaft 12 as seen in FIG. 2. Furthermore, it is preferred that each of the plurality of drive pins 17 is truncated conical shape. The truncated conical shape compliments the tooth design of the spur gear 9.
In one embodiment of the present invention, referring to FIG. 2, the fastener- engagement body 6 acts similar to a wrench socket and comprises a torque-transferring portion 7 and a fastener-receiving cavity 8. This embodiment is designed for bolts, nuts, and other similar fasteners that require a socket to engage the fastener. The torque- transferring portion 7 is a cylindrical extrusion which transfers torque from the spur gear 9 onto the external object. The torque-transferring portion 7 is concentrically and adjacently connected to the spur gear 9, opposite the ratchet head 2. The torque is applied to the external object through the fastener-receiving cavity 8. The fastener-receiving cavity 8 is complimentary shaped to interlock with the external object and laterally traverses through the torque-transferring portion 7 and the spur gear 9. For example, referring to FIG. 2, the fastener-receiving cavity 8 may be hexagonal shaped to engage with traditional hexagonal shaped bolts and nuts. In general, the size, shape, and depth of the fastener-receiving cavity 8 may vary to accommodate a variety of different fasteners. The fastener-receiving cavity 8 is positioned collinear with the rotation axis 11 of the spur gear 9 in order to efficiently transfer torque from the spur gear 9 to the external object. Referring to FIG. 3, the torque-transferring portion 7 is also laterally offset from the proximal base 16 in order to provide clearance for the plurality of drive pins 17.
In another embodiment of the present invention, the fastener engagement body is similar to a drill bit, wherein the fastener-receiving cavity 8 is replaced with a drive bit. The drive bit is adjacently connected to the torque-transferring portion 7 with a central axis of the drive bit being positioned collinear with the rotation axis 11 of the spur gear 9. This embodiment is designed for fasteners such as screws and other fasteners with slotted engagement heads. The cross section and shape of the drive bit may vary to
accommodate a variety of fastener designs.
The present invention is attached to the external power tool through an attachment body 23 and an engagement bore 24, similar to traditional tools. The attachment body 23 is a cylindrical extrusion that is positioned opposite to the plurality of drive pins 17, across the drive shaft 12. Additionally, the attachment body 23 is terminally connected to the drive shaft 12. The engagement bore 24 receives the external power tool to allow the external power tool to rotate the drive shaft 12 and therefore rotate the fastener- engagement body 6. More specifically, the engagement bore 24 traverses into the attachment body 23, opposite the drive shaft 12. Additionally, in order to ensure that the drive train of the present invention is balanced, the engagement bore 24 is positioned collinear with the rotation axis 15 of the drive shaft 12. The shape, width, height, and depth of the engagement bore 24 may vary in order to be compatible with a variety of external power tools. In the preferred embodiment of the present invention, the engagement bore 24 has a rectangular shape with either a quarter of an inch width or three eights of an inch width as these sizes are the most common coupling bits on today's market. In an alternative embodiment of the present invention, the external surface of the attachment body 23 may be used as the mating element for the external power tool. For example, the external surface may be hexagonal in shaped.
In one embodiment, the present invention also utilizes a clutch-type mechanism in order to limit the amount of torque applied to the external object, thus preventing over tightening as well as prevent the fastener-engagement body 6 from stripping the head of the external object. The clutch- type mechanism comprises a recoiling mechanism 25 and a toothed clutch coupling 27. In this embodiment, the drive shaft 12 comprises a front shaft 13 and a rear shaft 14. The front shaft 13 is positioned adjacent to the ratchet head 2 and is rotatably attached within the tubular handle 3. The rear shaft 14 received the torque from the external power source and passes said torque to the front shaft 13. Thus, the rear shaft 14 is positioned adjacent to the front shaft 13, opposite to the ratchet head 2.
Additionally, the rear shaft 14 is rotatably and slidably attached within the tubular handle 3. The rear shaft 14 is slidably attached within the tubular handle 3 in order to allow the rear shaft 14 to engage and disengage the front shaft 13 under specific circumstances through the toothed clutch coupling 27, i.e. the magnitude of torque being passed through the drive shaft 12. Thus, the toothed clutch coupling 27 is mechanically integrated in between the front shaft 13 and the rear shaft 14. The toothed clutch coupling 27 may be positioned into two states, an engaged state and a disengaged state. In the engaged state, the rear shaft 14 is mechanically connected to the front shaft 13, thus allowing torque to be transferred between the rear shaft 14 and the front shaft 13. In the disengaged state, the rear shaft 14 is able spin relative to the front shaft 13, thus no torque is transferred from the rear shaft 14 to the front shaft 13.
The recoiling mechanism 25 continuously applies a force onto the rear shaft 14 which pushes the rear shaft 14 into the front shaft 13, forcing the toothed clutch coupling 27 into the engaged state. In particular, the recoiling mechanism 25 is operatively coupled between the rear shaft 14 and the tubular handle 3, wherein the recoiling mechanism 25 is used to bias the rear shaft 14 towards the front shaft 13. As a result, the toothed clutch coupling 27 is in the engaged state by default and becomes disengages only when the torque difference between the rear shaft 14 and the front shaft 13 reaches a specific limit. In particular, when the torque difference between the front shaft 13 and the rear shaft 14 reaches the specific limit, the toothed clutch coupling 27 slips and allows the relative motion between the rear shaft 14 and the front shaft 13. This ensures that the external object does not experience a high magnitude of torque as this can lead damage the external object; i.e. stripping of the external object.
One type of recoiling mechanism 25 comprises a compression spring 26. The compression spring 26 is concentrically positioned about the rear shaft 14, within the tubular handle 3. A first end 28 of the compression spring 26 is connected to the rear shaft 14, adjacent to the front shaft 13. The second end 29 of the compression spring 26 is terminally connected to the tubular handle 3, opposite the ratchet head 2. As a result, the compression spring 26 applies an axial force onto the rear shaft 14 that pushes the rear shaft 14 into the front shaft 13, thus engaging the toothed clutch coupling 27.
In this embodiment of the present invention, the front shaft 13 and the rear shaft
14 are rotatably mounted within the tubular handle 3 through a first bearing 21 and a second bearing 22. More specifically, the first bearing 21 is concentrically mounted about the front shaft 13, within the tubular handle 3. Additionally, the first bearing 21 is positioned adjacent to the proximal base 16. Resultantly, the front shaft 13 is rotatably attached to the tubular handle 3 by the first bearing 21, thus allowing the front shaft 13 to rotate freely relative to the tubular handle 3. In a similar fashion, the second bearing 22 is concentrically mounted about the rear shaft 14 within the tubular handle 3. The second bearing 22 is positioned in between the front shaft 13 and the recoiling mechanism 25. Resultantly, the rear shaft 14 is rotatably mounted to the tubular handle 3 by the second bearing 22, thus allowing the rear shaft 14 to rotate freely relative to the tubular handle 3.
Although the invention has been explained in relation to its preferred
embodiment, it is to be understood that many other possible modifications and variations can be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed.
