Complex fastening regimes with multiple screws and high-speed production can lead to miss screws and compromised quality. Get it right the first time around with batch count and line control functionality.
Problem: Operator needs to mark every screw in order to check each one is fastened.
Solution: Screw counting function and line control capability. When all the screws are in place, the torque screwdriver sends a signal to the line and next batch arrives.
A screw counter helps manufacturers detect and eliminate costly screw-fastening errors during the assembly process. Using a screw counter is like putting the eyes and ears of a quality control manager where they are needed most – right on the assembly area. Screw counters verify that all fasteners have been installed and were seated to the tools preset torque setting. These units take the control of the assembly process out of the operator’s hands.
Designed to detect cross-threading, omissions, unfinished rundowns and cycles incomplete, a screw counter ensures the assembly process is done correctly the first time. The device typically operates jointly with assembly tool like an electric or pneumatic screwdriver or some torque control systems have it built-in. The screw counter features the ability to ‘learn’ the characteristics of not only the assembly tool but also that of the application that it is being used on. This allows the screw counter to distinguish between a fastener that was properly seated and one that was either stripped or cross-threaded.
