Improved Productivity

In a recent analysis of an application, our team reviewed a very time-consuming process requiring an operator to tighten four nuts individually to 20 Nm, then re-hit all four nuts and tighten to 48 Nm due to residual torque relaxation. Implementing a synchronized four-spindle Tensor STR fixture hanging from a cable balancer provided a solution to tighten all four nuts with only one run down, reducing the production time by 85%. The solution has improved residual torques and ergonomics for the operator while paying for itself in less than eight months.

Increase Tool Uptime

A complex assembly had two operators manually fastening a baffle, with a high amount of damaged parts due to cross-threaded fasteners. To solve this issue, our experts designed an electric system with a torque arm that could be run by one operator. Cross-threading was eliminated by using our error proofing torque strategy. The customer was able to re-allocate three personnel and also save on scrap and damaged parts.

Reduction in Defects

Our team found a manual arbor press that not only was dangerous to use, but had a high number of damaged parts, causing rework. With our single press station solution, scrap was eliminated and ergonomics and safety were improved with 100% post payback profit in the first year.
