CHALLENGE
CHALLENGE
Our customer, specializing in door assembly, experienced a quality issue due to missed fasteners. The source of the issue was identified at a single station. The station required manual tightening of ten fasteners where the operator would re-hit the same fastener.

Defective products were placed in containment; each containment activity spans a two day timeframe and costs around $10,000, twice a month.
