Should I test the tools or the joints?

Multiple types of inspections run every day in manufacturing plants all over the world. Some stress the importance of running joint inspections and others, instead, focus on the inspections. Both are equally important in ensuring the quality of production.

A joint inspection determines whether or not the fastening produced adheres to the quality standards of the production process. For example, the bolts on the wheels of a vehicle need to have the right amount of torque to ensure the safety of the vehicle.

As some might argue that this is enough to check the quality of the tightening process, we would say that quality can be taken one step further to try and prevent any possible issue during the manufacturing process. Tool inspections can help complete this process, by making sure that tools continue working correctly during every shift.

Monitoring tool performance could trigger the replacement of a tool before it stops delivering the right accuracy thus, impacting production.
