Automated manufacturing systems are typically built around a core part or material transfer system such as a dial indexer, track based linear motion system, or palletized conveyor. These platforms fundamentally impact both the system’s output capabilities, as well as the overall footprin. Your decision to use one vs. another will be driven by various factors, such as meeting specific performance criteria, adapting to facility space constraints or the overall experience and ease of use.
Identifying and finding the best torque tooling solution for your individual needs is paramount to success in your assembly process. Not all applications require the complexity and investment costs associated with DC tooling for critical fastening.
An understanding of how the tool operates, how to properly maintain the tool, and proper application of the tool is essential to ensure the safety of the operator while using a DC electric fastening tool.
Achieving zero defect assembly strategy seemed like a pipedream at one time, however, with process control solutions this dream has now become a reality.

A major issue faced in the assembly process is human error. An error can happen for a number of reasons; untrained employee, undefined assembly process, or the wrong part being chosen. A process control solution solves these issues.
