Customer success story:
Low Reaction Tools improve ergonomics and savings on medical costs

Atlas Copco TBP Low Reaction Tool (LRT) plus Power Focus 6000

Challenge:

Atlas Copco Tools and Assembly Systems is working with an agricultural equipment manufacturing customer to solve ergonomic issues involving excessive noise in their process.

Our Regional Sales Manager at the plant, along with the customer, had identified in the work environment where impact drivers are used on panel-type assembly, causing very high noise levels. The excessive noise has resulted in cases where operators had hearing losses, with recorded cases causing claims of $22,200 annually.

Solution:

The solution: Atlas Copco TBP wireless, low reaction tools plus Power Focus 6000.

Atlas Copco TBP - our wireless, error-proofed, one-handed Low Reaction Tools were combined with Power Focus 6000, the flagship tool controller that is the core of Smart Connected Assembly, our vision for Industry 4.0. The 5 GHz Wi-Fi connection between tool and controller enables reliable, interference-free communication. Results are sent directly to the customer's manufacturing quality system.

Additional benefits:

Not only will our customer benefit from savings in reduced medical costs caused by noise, but the TBP’s lower vibrations greatly reduces the risk of cardio vascular injuries to the operators. Quality improvements to their production are also gained, thanks to the TBP’s torque control and angle measuring capabilities, which allow for fastener counting and detection of potential assembly issues.
