Dremel (// DREM-əl) is an American brand of power tools known primarily for its rotary tools. Dremel's rotary tools are similar to the pneumatic die grinders used in the metalworking industry by tool or moldmakers.
Racine, Wisconsin, U.S.
|Founder||Albert J. Dremel|
|Headquarters||1800 W. Central Rd., |
|Products||Rotary tools, hot glue guns, scroll saws, contour sanders, versatips, and powered screwdrivers|
|Parent||Robert Bosch GmbH|
The tools were originally developed by Albert J. Dremel, an Austrian immigrant who founded the Dremel Company in 1932 in Racine, Wisconsin. The company was purchased by Robert Bosch GmbH in 1993, and today it is a division of the Robert Bosch Tool Corporation located in Mount Prospect, Illinois. Dremel's activities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa are operated by Dremel Europe, located in Breda, Netherlands.
The concept of the original Dremel Moto-Tool was to rotate a bit at high speed, the bit being held in a collet. Variable-speed versions may cover a range of 3,000–37,000 RPM. The Dremel concept relies on high speed as opposed to the high torque of a conventional power drill. By inserting an appropriate bit (or burr) the tool can perform drilling, grinding, sharpening, cutting, cleaning, polishing, sanding, routing, carving, and engraving. Both battery-powered and corded models are available. Early cordless models were marketed as the Dremel Freewheeler. Dremel options include a miniature planer attachment and a saber saw attachment that lets the tool act much like a small reciprocating saw.
However, the collets are flexible and will accept both original Dremel and alternative makes of cutting, grinding, and polishing head shafts.
Dremel also produces 3D printers.

Dremel, which has made rotary power tools for nearly a century, has done well in branching out into 3D printers
