Robotic Screwdriver System

There are various manufacturing strategies for keeping assembly lines operating productive and proficiently. Not all assembly applications are alike and each one provides a different set of obstacles that need be resolved. Manufacturing engineers must confront challenges with ongoing ergonomic issues, rising labor expenses and inefficient fastening tools. An assembly line that is ineffective and…

First Movement Torque Testing

Method for Conducting a First Movement Torque Test

Torque is a critical component in manufacturing many products. Once the assembly process is completed, measuring torque isn’t finished. A threaded fastener should be audited to verify the joint has been tightened to the proper torque specification. Verification ensures compliance to quality requirements. Residual torque is the amount of tension that remains in a joint…

Ergonomic Torque Arms

Ergonomic Torque Arm Prevents Assembly Injuries

A poorly designed and functioning assembly worksite leads to potential employee injuries and additional expenses can incur. With large volume manufacturing facilities, power tools are often used for tightening down fasteners. Assembly power tools increase productivity and reduce manufacturing costs. Tools that operate at high speeds increase risk factors. Power tools generally produce unwanted torque…
