Getting it right from the first to the last screw

Screws are an essential component in manufacturing because of their ability to be a reliable and efficient way to hold objects together securely. In electronics, precision is everything, and accurate screw tightening plays a crucial role in maintaining cost-efficiency and quality. Even though electronic devices are getting smaller, the quantity of screws used remains high. For example, an average smartphone that nicely fits in the palm of a human hand, despite its size can still contain up to 70 screws. The increased demand for electronics in everyday life and such numbers of screws drive complexity in electronics manufacturing and introduce certain challenges.

 

Diverse world of
electronics assembly challenges!

Product Complexity

Product Complexity

Heavy and complex production demands often compel factories to source components from multiple suppliers, leading to friction variations that can impact the final product’s torque and clamp force

Screwdriver Technology

Screwdriver Technology

As material complexity increases, selecting the appropriate screwdriver technology becomes even more crucial. This decision involves choosing between traditional clutch tools, current-controlled tools, or advanced transducerized tools for the task at hand

Tightening Strategy

Tightening Strategy

Traditional tightening methods like target torque and torque & angle control perform well when materials are consistent. However, in real-world complex production environments, a more reliable approach focusing on clamp torque is needed to guarantee consistency

Manual vs Automated Station

Manual vs Automated Station

Complex production often sparks the debate between manual and automated processes. Regardless of the choice, the key challenge stays the same - maintaining precise process control throughout the tightening process

Consumer electronics

Consumer electronics

Everyday gadgets like smartphones, laptops, TVs, and gaming consoles, shape our modern lives. Their production thrives on rapid innovation, enhancing processing power, displays, and connectivity for sleek designs and cutting-edge features. To keep pace, assembly solutions must be both efficient and adaptive. Our smart tightening strategies with a focus on actual clamp torque, boost productivity, improve product quality, and cut production costs. Furthermore, the Atlas Copco ecosystem facilitates complete traceability throughout the production process, whether using handheld or automated tools.

Semiconductors

Semiconductor manufacturing requires precise design, fabrication, and assembly of electronic components. Silicon used for semiconductor production is extremely sensitive to contaminants, therefore, fabrication plants feature state-of-the-art machinery and cleanroom environments to ensure precision and quality. These machines require delicate maintenance, which is difficult to achieve using manual torque wrenches. Atlas Copco provides advanced, ergonomic tightening solutions, enhancing maintenance speed and quality while reducing operator strain. 

Semiconductors
Medical electronics

Medical electronics

Medical devices, from MRI machines to pacemakers, are crucial for precise healthcare, aiding in diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring. Integrated sensors and wearables offer accessible insights, empowering quick decisions by healthcare professionals. However, device malfunctions can directly impact a person's health.

 

Atlas Copco's smart tightening strategies focus on monitoring clamp torque to address material inconsistencies. Moreover, our ecosystem ensures full production traceability, whether using handheld or automated tools. These solutions together ensure the highest quality standards for safety-critical medical devices, protecting human life in the highly regulated medical device market.

Vehicle electronics

Modern vehicles are packed with sophisticated electronics that handle safety, entertainment, performance, and efficiency systems, including ECUs, ABS, airbags, navigation, and more.

 

With a future focused on autonomous driving, vehicle-infrastructure communication, and electrification, the demand for complex and reliable electronic systems is growing, leaving no room for compromises on quality. Precision and advanced tightening strategies are essential. Atlas Copco's smart tightening strategies ensure accurate clamp torque application, meeting the highest production quality standards. Additionally, our ecosystem enables full production process traceability, whether using handheld or automated tools.​

Smart Tightening Strategies – more than just torque and angle

Smart tightening strategy clamp torque
In Atlas Copco, we offer a series of smart tightening tools with advanced tightening strategies that focus on clamp torque instead of traditionally used basic target torque or torque & angle control. Our smart tightening strategies Smart torque seating monitoring​ (TSM) and Smart seating control strategy​ (SCS) measure the force between the screw head and the component it is seated. This helps to monitor, detect, and eliminate tightening-related quality issues like misalignment, floating screws, overtightening, and others.

Shifting the focus to clamp torque rather than target torque ensures consistency across parts, even in the presence of friction variations, meeting all high-quality standards in the manufacturing process.

Automated Screwdriving with Collaborative Robots

29 Oktober, 2020

Over the past few years, the demand for automation friendly processes in manufacturing has grown exponentially. The digitalization of manufacturing and assembly provides our customers the opportunity to optimize their production and increase efficiency on the line.

 

 

Smart Integrated Assembly

Automation addresses complexity

Automation eliminates operator influence on the tightening process and allows for the greatest level of control which improves quality, and efficiency and reduces costs caused by reworks and recalls. It enables the desired level of quality right from the very start and throughout the production process.

 

Our portfolio of smart automated systems for tightening reduces the risk of downtime caused by inadequate tightening quality or human error.
