Error-Proofing the Fastening Sequence and Tool Position

Safeguarding against sequence and tightening failures requires you to deploy tools equipped with error-proofing capabilities that track each screw the tools fasten. Eliminate product rework and warranties by adding another layer of error-proofing to the manufacturing line. Common Sequence & Tightening Failures Under-tightening: Loose fasteners cause slippage between parts, placing unwanted shear stress Gasket creep…
