Preset Torque Screwdrivers

Tips for Selecting a Preset Torque Screwdriver

What is quality? In manufacturing, a measure of excellence or a state of being free from defects, deficiencies and significant variations. It is brought about by strict and consistent commitment to certain standards that achieve uniformity of a product in order to satisfy specific customer or user requirements (http://www.businessdictionary.com). Quality needs consistency. Quality provides a…

Screw Presenters Stop Screw Fumbles

Prevent Screw Fumbles with a Screw Presenter

Assemblers fumble around with screws daily during the fastening process. The repetition of grabbing small fasteners from a bin is tedious and time-consuming. The constant repetition of picking-up and fumbling around with hundreds and hundreds of screws on a daily basis impacts productivity and costs. It’s an unnecessary expense and an inefficient process. Also, a…
