Recalls and reworking on your assembly line can be avoided by monitoring quality during the tightening process, thus detecting failures immediately.
Monitoring quality has traditionally involved measuring torque, which generates clamp load. However, tightening results are also impacted by variations in friction or components. Therefore, a second dimension, most commonly rotational angle, needs to be measured as well. Controlling and monitoring both torque and angle detects failures such as missing gaskets, cross threads, material problems, and operator errors.
By ensuring quality in the tightening process you minimize costly recalls, reworking, and warranty claims, and avoid damage to your valuable reputation.
