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

Because of this, the customer was delivering incorrectly assembled products to their customers, which caused them to be placed on containment at the cost of $30,000 for each instance of containment.
