Screwdriving and Riveting Assembly
These days, manufacturers of all stripes are taking a closer at their energy consumption as a potential source of cost savings—even manufacturers of the largest, most expensive products in the world.
Located in the small town of Strakonice, Czech Republic, is CZ a.s., one of the leading suppliers to the automotive industry in Eastern Europe.
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.
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
The Global Lightweight Vehicle Manufacturing Congress 2014, taking place in Detroit on May 28-29, is the first congress to specifically focus on how OEMs are deciding on joining methods and how welding, bonding and riveting technologies are being cost effectively implemented to economically, rapidly and consistently join high strength steel, aluminium and carbon fiber composites in high volume vehicle manufacturing.Read More
