Mountz, The Torque Tool Specialists®, hosted a torque webinar about how to improve quality by implementing error-proofing techniques, along with tips for transforming the manufacturing area to be COVID-19 compliant.
Minor fastening errors can quickly blossom into big problems. Over- or under-tightening can cause the fastener or assembly to fail under stress, either immediately or later. When a fastener fails, it can have serious repercussions, including overloading other parts and creating a cascading failure or rattling free in a moving assembly like an engine. As they say, loose screws sink ships.
Safeguarding against fastening failures requires you to deploy tools equipped with error-proofing capabilities that track each screw the tools fasten. When a fastening error occurs, the torque control system will detect it, flag it, and prevent the product from moving further down the line. IoT connected automation tools improve production and quality by collecting and storing data as well as providing real-time transparency in a manufacturer’s assembly operations. Such real-time transparency enables quality assurance personnel to detect any fastening issues as soon as they arise.
Adapting Manufacturing Area to a COVID-19 Environment
The COVID-19 impact poses unique challenges for industrial manufacturers that require implementing contingent safety measures for safeguarding employees while balancing the needs of production demands. It is a critical time to explore a proactive deployment of automation tools to decrease worker density throughout the assembly area.
What You Will Learn:
- Control, monitor and ensure screws are properly tightened
- Program key parameters and sequences to control the tightening process
- Complete fastening data collection for traceability
- Implement communication protocols for manufacturing line control
- Ensure accurate and repeatable torque control
- Meet COVID-19 compliance requirements by transforming your production space to achieve social distance mandates
Choosing the right error-proofing solutions can make or break a manufacturing operation. Here’s your chance to learn how to improve quality by deploying error-proofing tactics quickly and the automation tools for transforming the production space to be COVID-19 compliant.
