CHALLENGE
CHALLENGE
By using a pneumatic tool in their process, our customer saw fasteners that were fully torqued, but not seated properly. The tool would provide OK status on NOK product because it did not have the capability of detecting the actual failure mode.

Because of this, they were delivering incorrectly assembled products to their customers, placing them on containment at the cost of $30,000 for each instance.
