Screwdriving and Riveting Assembly
Weight reduction has become the focus of attention for most if not all major automotive OEM’s such as Audi, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Jaguar, Porsche, BMW, VW, GM, and Ford.
In tough economic times it is even more important to find efficient, cost effective ways to improve assembly processes and to make sure they save you time and money.
Despite having 21st century technology, we still use assembly processes that were firmly rooted in the early 20th century.
Tools with transducers save your plant time, money and effort in almost every category.
The increase in miniaturization in the electronic as well as the non-electronic industries has resulted in a need for assembly of miniaturized devices with tight constraints on the installation conditions.
When manufacturers have to select fastening tools for critical joint applications one would expect the quality department to be included in the process.
Using Automated Screw Feeder Systems can increase production dramatically during peak time using the same labor force.
The DEPRAG CleanFeed system is the world’s most comprehensive solution for technical cleanliness.
In today’s assembly environment, there are a wide variety of joints and fasteners that require the proper tool to secure.
Manufacturers are always looking for ways to improve quality and reduce scrap to increase their bottom line.
The past two years have seen rapid developments in automotive lightweighting efforts with the eagerly anticipated release of the BMW I Series, Mercedes S-Class, Lamborghini Aventator, McLaren P1 and the 420kg weight reduction of the Range Rover to name a few. With Aluminium and Carbon Fibre emerging as what seem to be the front runners in achieving lightweight results in luxury brands, it is still unclear which material combination will dominate the mass market.Read More
