Most of the fasteners in car seats are safety critical. Maintaining high quality and productivity is essential. Seating quality problems discovered in the final assembly plants impact production. When found on the final assembly line, downtime is extremely costly. Atlas Copco services start already at the design phase where we offer professional services to support joint analysis and specifications and therefore have the solutions to reduce the risks of unplanned stops.
Every fastener counts. Atlas Copco Power Focus 6000 brings error proofing to a new level. The Power Focus 6000 combined with Atlas Copco’s positioning arms give the ability to run bolt level positioning directly out of the controller. This eliminates complex PLC interfaces, providing a versatile easy to use setup. Ensuring that every seat is built correctly
The most common fastening problem in seating is fully torques but not seated fasteners. Incorrect sized holes and cross-threaded fasteners are some of the most common causes. Atlas Copco Power Focus 6000’s advanced tightening strategies provide proven methods to detect these failures, preventing them from leaving the station
Plastics on the seats can be challenging. It is common to have the fastener strip the plastic if the hole size varies. This is a common occurrence in side shields. Tightening strategies like Snug Gradient allow us to sense the drive torque and adapt the tool to prevent stripping of the threads
Seat manufacturing quality is extremely important not only in the seating plant but is also critical to your customers. Seating quality problems discovered in the Final Assembly plants impact production. When found on the final assembly line, downtime is extremely costly. Commonly resulting in chargebacks for lost production of the vehicle.
